Christmas Pet Safety

“My cat would never eat food off the table!”
 “My cat would never knock over the Christmas tree!”
“My cat would never bite someone!”

We all know our cats pretty well, but what we don’t always realize is that stress can make anybody do crazy things! When you have holiday guests or flashing Christmas lights or loud holiday music—or all of the above—at your house all at once, your cat may get stressed and frustrated, causing them to act out in unexpected ways. Most cat accidents are met with the statement, “He’s never done anything like that before!”

We recommend always making sure that your pet has a safe place to sit and relax during your holidays parties. Just like some people, cats need to get away from the action and de-stress, but most of the time they don’t know how to ask for their space.  We recommend moving your cats into a quiet room and letting them spend some time resting during your holiday get-togethers. Your cat will be happier, and by extension, you and your guests will be happier! And holidays disasters will be prevented.
