cat proofing house

by natasha

to keep a cat in my house, do i have to cat-proof my whole house or can i not let the cat come in some places where there are decoration pieces(glass ect)

Answer by Kate
Having a cat in your home does not necessarily require you to cat proof your house as such but it is best to make sure that anything which could be dangerous i.e some plants are poisonous

if the cat can reach glass ornaments and could not them off then yes it is advisable to either remove them or place them in places where the cat will not be able to reach them.

really having a cat in your home is just like having a small child in the house. in generally they will naturally explore and so removing any obvious dangers is required.

Also you will have to make sure that upstairs windows are not left often, cats falling from windows can be a very common occurrence.

i hope you enjoy your new pet. My cat site has lots of information etc which you may find helpful if you are unsure of anything regarding there care.

best wishes kate
