Dogs and cats (especially kittens) can be cery curious.  Here’s how to keep your pet safe in your home.

Kitchen/Bathrooms

  • Use child-proof latches to keep little paws from prying open cabinets.  Something like this…. would work great.
  • Place medications, cleaners, chemicals and laundry supplies on high shelves.
  • Keep trask cans covered or inside a latched cabinet.
  • check for and block any small spaces, nooks, or homes inside cabinets or behind washer or dryer units.
  • Make sure your kitten hasn’t jumped into the dryer before you turn it on.
  • Keep foods out of reach (even if the food isn’t harmful, the wrapper could be.
  • Keep the toilet lid closed to prevent drowning or drinking of harmful cleaning chemicals.

Living/Family Room

  • Place dangling wires from lamps, televisions, stereos, and telephones out of reach.
  • Put away children’s games and toys.
  • Put away knick-knacks until your pet has the coordination not to knock them over.
  • Check all those places where your cacuum cheaner doesn’t fit, but your puppy or kitten does, for dangerous items, like string.
  • Move common house plants that may be poisonous out of reach. Don’t forget hanging plants that can be jumped onto from nearby surfaces.
  • Make sure all heating and air vents have covers.
  • Put away all sewing and craft notions, especially thread.

Garage

  • Move all chemicals to high shelves or behind secure dorrds.
  • Chean all antifreeze from the floor and friveway, as one taste can be lethal to animals.
  • Bang on your car hood to ensire that your kitten (or any neighborhood cat) has not hidden in the engine for warmth.
  • Keep all sharp object and tools out of reach

Bedrooms

  • Keep laundry and shoes behind chosed doors (drawstrings and buttone can cause major problems, if swallowed.
  • Keep any medications, lotions, or cosemetics off acessible surfaces, like a bedside table.
  • Move electrical and phone wires out of reach of chewing.
  • Be careful that you don’t close your kitten in closets or dresser drawers.

And look out for paws, noses and tails when you shut doors behind you or move chairs around.
