Keep your cat safe and your house neat with these tips
Cats are naturally curious creatures. Built for activity, they love to explore their environment. However, excessive movement can lead to your cat hurting herself or getting stuck in a tight space.
As a cat owner, one of the most important missions you must be committed to is keeping your pet safe. However, make sure also to protect your personal belongings. Read on for some top tips on how you can do that, brought to you by 3a2ilati.
- Lock your kitchen and bathroom cabinets to make sure that your cat isn’t able to reach their contents.
- Keep your medicine, makeup, balms, creams and cleaning products in a safe place, inaccessible by your cat.
- Store your trash can inside a cabinet and make sure it’s always covered.
- Keep your cat safe by making sure she isn’t able to go into any holes, cracks or tight spaces. Close off the ones you think might pose a threat.
- Check your washing machine before you switch it on and make sure your cat isn’t spending leisure time in there.
- Make sure all food and leftovers are somewhere your cat cannot reach.
