Thanksgiving Safety Tips for Cats

  • Cut down the decorations

Thanksgiving event is incomplete without aromatic flowers, potpourris and the traditional Thanksgiving decorations. But there are certain toxic plants and flowers species that are toxic to your cat. Here is the list. Potpourri, a mixture of dried petals and spices placed in a bowl to perfume a room, contains cationic detergents and essentials oils which can cause internal tissue damages to cat’s digestive organs if consumed.

  • Candles and Fireplaces

As the winter season is approaching and to add enhance the holiday celebration, we generally use scented candles and warm fires in the hearth. Being occupied in an unusual environment during Thanksgiving treat, cats generally get fascinated by those glittering candle beams and popping sounds and burn themselves especially their sensitive paw pads. So, try to avoid such lightening system or never leave your cat unattended around open flame materials.

  • Mind the Front door

You won’t even know when your cat just slipped through the front side to enjoy a peaceful environment outside while you were welcoming a group of friends into your home. To avoid such situations, always appoint someone or hire a pet sitter who can track your cat’s every single activity. To avoid the escape, make sure your cat is wearing a collar with ID Tag or you can also micro-chip your cat to find the lost pet with fewer efforts.

  • Thanksgiving Food

This is the most important one among those Thanksgiving safety tips for cats we discussed above. To have a safe and healthy Thanksgiving dinner, we have to make sure that our food menu is designed in such a way that it is favorable for both two-legged and four-legged fellows. Try to fill your cat’s Thanksgiving treats with Turkey, unseasoned salad and pumpkin, etc. To know more about Thanksgiving Treats You Can Share With Cats, visit here.
