Happy ‘pawlidays’, everyone! We are ‘whiskering’ you a Happy Hannukah and very ‘meowy’ Christmas! All cat puns aside, the month of December is here, and it is a great time to talk about holiday safety for your cat. After Thanksgiving, the trees start to go up, the menorah gets shined, and holiday lights get untangled. What you might not be thinking of, however, is the safety of your feline friends!
July is designated as Pet Fire Safety Month, and it is a great time to make sure you are doing everything possible to prevent a fire, as well as planning for your cat should a house fire happen. Sadly, it is estimated that half a million pets perish in house fires every year. Reading, understanding, and implementing these suggestions could keep your beloved feline (and you) safe.
Springtime showers bring springtime flowers, and with Easter right around the corner, lilies will be making their way into homes.
Most Species of Lily Should be Avoided
Lilies, specifically all species of Lilium (true lily), including Easter lily, Tiger lily, Asiatic lily, and others, as well as Hemerocallis (day lily) are toxic and potentially life-threatening to cats. Small amounts from these plants, like 1-2 petals or leaves, water from the vase, and even pollen groomed off the fur, can result in severe, acute kidney failure and death
