Holiday Cat Safety Tips

Holiday Cat Safety Tips in New Orleans, LA

From decorations to toxic foods, the holiday season can be a dangerous time for a cat, but the team at The Cat Practice in New Orleans is determined to make it safe for your feline friend. Consider the following holiday cat safety tips, and have a very merry Christmas and joy-filled new year with your family!

Christmas Decorations in NOLA

They shine, they sparkle, and they add a nice finishing touch to Christmas trees and gifts, but some of those decorations can be hazardous to your cat. High on the list are tinsel, garland, and ribbons. You’re probably well aware of the curious nature of cats and how easily drawn they are to stringy, sparkly things. Many cats have been known to even eat these things, but this can result in intestinal blockage and land them in the emergency room for pet surgery. We know that’s the last place you want to spend the holidays with your cat, so keep these stringy decorations out of your cat’s reach or simply avoid using them altogether.

Seasonal Plants Could be Dangerous for Cats

Is there mistletoe and holly hanging high above your doorway? If so, make sure it stays up there, out of your cat’s reach. Mistletoe and holly are just a couple of the many plants that are known to be mildly to moderately toxic to cats. If ingested, symptoms can include your cat to vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and even seizures. Other toxic seasonal plants include poinsettias (mildly toxic) and lilies (moderately to severely toxic). To keep your cat safe, simply keep these poisonous plants out of their reach or buy artificial plants instead.

Christmas and New Years Parties for Cats

Hosting a Christmas or New Year’s Eve party at your place this year? Don’t forget to consider your cat’s safety during the planning. If your cat is the social type, make sure to keep an eye on them around your guests, especially if your cat has claws. Remember to also consider the possibility of any of your guests having allergies. If you decide it’s best—both for your cat and your guests—to not include your furry friend on the party festivities, keep your cat in a separate room where they can relax.

If you have any questions about these cat holiday tips, or if you’d like to schedule an appointment at The Cat Practice, give us a call at 504-525-6369
