* Make sure that the floors are clear of any little items.
* Pay close attention to everything that your cat is doing at all times.
The majority of cats will, at some time in their life, find themselves into trouble due to their natural curiosity. When you are the one responsible for your cat’s care, maintaining her security might feel like an uphill battle at times. You can, however, make your house a “home, safe home” with little planning ahead of time and some effort.
It is to your advantage to put yourself in your cat’s shoes while you are striving to offer the very best environment for her to live in. Put on some old clothing and go down on your hands and knees so you can have a better view of everything. Is it wise to put your eyes on that glimmering crystal vase on the shelf? Keep in mind that cats may and will leap up onto tables and bookcases.
It could be amusing to leap and try to grasp that curtain string that is dangling. What is simmering in this enormous pot? In case you need some assistance determining what a cat could be interested in, the following is a list of typical home items that are frequently the source of injuries sustained by cats:
* Traps for roaches and ants
* Cords for the phone and the electricity
* tobacco products placed in ashtrays
* open doors and windows
* rubber bands
* products for use in cleaning the home
* lighted candles
* Yuletide decorations
* seating in rocking chairs
* toilets that are not covered
* waste receptacles
* pharmaceuticals for humans
* unsupervised boiling pots
* heating elements for electric ranges
* plastic shopping bags
As playthings, cats can’t get enough of playing with plants. They just adore jumping out at them and tearing them to shreds with their sharp claws and fangs. Even though they are carnivores, which means they eat meat, they will occasionally consume plant matter. Because of these factors, it is essential to ensure that the plants found within and around your house do not provide a danger to your health. The following are some examples of common houseplants and outdoor plants that cats should not be exposed to:
* Philodendron, sometimes known as the English ivy
* caladium dieffenbachia “elephant ear”

If you live in a region that is prone to natural catastrophes, you should always have an emergency pack for your pet on hand as well. Include enough food for a week’s worth of meals as well as any medicine that your cat needs on a consistent basis. It is also a good idea to have a photo of your pet with your emergency supplies. This way, in the event that you become separated from your cat during the disaster, you will have a means to spread the word so that she may be located.
It is possible that you may never require a collar with an identity tag, but in the event that you do require one, you will wish that you had purchased one sooner. Even if your cat never leaves the house, you should always prepare for the unexpected just in case. Your pet cat gets out of the house because you forgot to close a door or window, or because a natural calamity made a hole in your house that the cat could fit through.
The following pieces of information should be included on the identification tag for your cat:
* Pet’s name
* The name and address of the owner
* A list of possible phone numbers (day and evening)
* A medical condition that requires the use of medicines
* The name and phone number of the veterinarian
* Information about the most recent vaccine for rabies
* An offer of a reward in the event that the pet is lost
For identification purposes, a lot of people get their cats microchipped these days. A little chip made of silicone that has the cat’s owner’s contact information is put beneath the cat’s skin in a painless procedure. The majority of animal shelters use scanning technology to automatically read the contact information of owners of missing pets. If, on the other hand, your cat is discovered by a regular person, having an identifying tag on it will help you get back together with it more quickly.
