As you can see, we are finally getting into the festive mood. However, as Mum always has the tendency to get overwhelmed by many things, Christmas being one, I have to tell you that the pic above is not our Christmas card. She is still working on it. All will be revealed on Caturday Art Day.
But we can see that most of you have already created such lovely Christmas and Holiday cards and we are enjoying viewing them all. It's obvious a lot of humans love the holiday season, but it's very important to remember that this time of year can actually be quite a hazardous time for cats (and all pets).
Dangers to cats are:
- Turkey bones
Presents and wrappings
Becareful when using the following to wrap your presents
- Ties and ribbons
Christmas Tree and Decorations
Christmas trees can be mildly toxic to cats. Pine needles can cause vomiting or intestinal obstruction and punctures, and lights, baubles and other decorations can be harmful. Avoid decorations made of glass and other breakable or sharp materials. Christmas tree lights can give your cat an electric shock or burns. Tinsel is best avoided too.
