Howdy all, My wife and I have rescued two kittens in recent years. I wish we had read this article before we brought the little kittens home. We have definitely experienced many of the items indicated in this informative article. Check out this information and begin preparing for you new kitten.
If you have recently adopted a kitten or cat, or you are considering adopting one, kitten safety is very important. You need to take steps to “kitten-proof” your home to keep your new family member safe. The best way to approach this is to consider your new pet as a toddler or a child who will get into anything they can. Kittens and cats are very curious animals and will seek out new and interesting things and places in your home and if your not careful, this could pose a health hazard to your pet.
- One of the first things to do to ensure kitten safety is to make sure all cleaning products, chemicals, or any other harmful substances are locked away in a place that the kitten cannot get to.
- The best thing to do is to get child proof latches that you install on your cabinet doors that prevent the kitten from opening the cabinet. Then, keep all hazardous materials in the child proof cabinets where they cannot be accessed by the kitten.
- You also need to search your home for any inanimate objects that the kitten could choke on. This includes rubber bands, hair ties, bag ties, marbles, or anything small enough to fit into the cats mouth.
- Make sure your kitten does not have access to any electrical cords. Kittens having growing teeth and will go through teething just like a child will. They will chew on anything.
- Positive reinforcement goes a long way when training a cat. Kitten safety may seem tedious, but your cute furry friend is well worth the effort to keep them safe.
