  • Pet Dangers Don't Go Away During the Holidays
    ornaments and especially tinsel and other items that can be swallowed and cause problems Cats and dogs too may chew on tinsel or other items as part of play but the fine metallic strips can cause serious problems if ingested Tree ornaments can be a similar issue The Internet is full of hilarious videos of cats scrambling up Christmas trees swinging from branches or swiping at ornaments Most of the time this is harmless fun for everyone But again each year sees real tragedies as cats contact electrical wires swallow smaller items or are even injured when a tree and its heavy decoration falls with them in the wrong place One of the biggest dangers involves an open flame Whether your pet is a dog cat or bird fire is always a potential danger If a candle is knocked over it can cause real problems if the flame comes into contact with something easily flammable Birds especially can be easily injured if they fly too near an open flame Consider When and Where None of this is to say you shouldn t have candles or Christmas trees candy and other holiday fun Simply keep prevention in mind and consider where you place them A low table might not be a good idea for example Other items aren t as obvious Everyone seems to like ribbons during the holidays including pets But consider ribbon or discarded wrapping paper as a possible hazard if it s ingested And think twice before fashioning a ribbon collar for Fido or Fifi There s nothing inherently wrong with it but make sure it s not too tight and can t become a choking hazard Holiday foods can be a hazard and not just to our waistlines Chocolates and other sweets can be toxic for some

  • So You Adopted a Stray Cat?
    a forever thing you will get the room back sometime But starting your stray in a single room where it feels safe and secure is a good idea if at all possible In this room place food water and a litter box the latter as separate as possible Toys and something to scratch on are also a good idea a scratching post is great but even an old carpet can work Peace and Quiet Especially at first it s best if this room is quiet and out of the way something that can serve as a temporary shelter where the new cat feels secure You might even create a small house just a box with an open end or even a small blanket or towel draped between chairs When the cat appears relatively comfortable no more than a day or two a few visits will become advisable You might sit across the room and talk so the cat becomes used to your voice Cells phone calls would be an option for you not the cat We mentioned food and water in this room and that should be consistent and steady You want the cat to associate these with you but at first you may have to leave before your feline will feel comfortable eating and drinking However if the cat remains too shy you may need to resort to only feeding when you are present and utilizing special treats or especially aromatic wet food think chicken and gravy Don t Touch At Least At First Physical contact should be on the cat s terms Sitting on the floor and talking followed by offers of treats can be used to expedite the process But always let the cat initiate contact This includes even eye contact which cats are very aware of
