Kitten-Proofing Your Home:

Provided by the American Humane Association

Curious kittens are capable of leaping onto high surfaces or squeezing into the smallest of spaces.  To protect your kitten in his new environment, and to safeguard your belongings, kitten-proof your house.

Kitchens / Bathrooms:

  • Use childproof latches to keep little paws from prying open cabinets.
  • Keep trashcans covered or inside a latched cabinet.
  • Check for and block any small spaces, nooks, or holes inside cabinetry or behind washer / dryer units.
  • Make sure they have not jumped into the dryer before you turn it on.
  • Keep medications, cleaners, chemicals, and laundry supplies on high shelves.
  • Keep toilet lids closed.
  • Keep foods out of reach.

Living / Family Room:

  • Place dangling wires from lamps, VCR’s, televisions, stereos, DVD’s and phones out of reach.
  • Keep kid’s toys put away.
  • Move houseplants, which may be poisonous.
  • Make sure all heating/air vents are covered.
  • Put away all sewing and craft notions, especially thread.
  • Put away knickknacks until your kitten has the coordination not to knock them over.

Garage:

  • Move all chemicals to high shelves or behind secure doors.
  • Clean up all antifreeze from the floor and driveway, as one taste can be lethal to a kitten.
  • Bang on your car hood to ensure your kitten has not hidden in the engine.
  • Keep fishhooks and other sharp objects and tools out of reach.

Bedrooms:

  • Keep laundry and shoes behind closed doors (drawstrings and buttons can cause problems.)
  • Keep any medications, lotions, or cosmetics off accessible surfaces.
  • Move electrical and phone wires out of chewing reach.
  • Be careful you don’t close your kitten in closets or dresser drawers.
  • Look out for paws, noses, and tails when you shut doors behind you or scoot chairs.

Ten Tips for a Poison Safe Household

1.Be aware of the plants you have in your house and in your pet’s yard. The ingestion of azalea, oleander, mistletoe, sago palm, Easter lily, or yewplant material, by an animal, could be fatal.

2.When cleaning your house, never allow your pet access to the area where cleaning agents are used or stored. Cleaning agents have a variety of properties. Some may only cause a mild stomach upset, while others could cause severeburns of the tongue, mouth, and stomach.

3.When using rat or mouse bait, ant or roach traps, or snail and slug baits. Most bait contain sweet smelling ingredients, such as jelly, peanut butter, and sugars, which can be very attractive to your pet.

4. Never give you animal any medications unless under the direction of your veterinarian. Many medications that are used safely in humans can be deadly when used inappropriately. One extra strength acetaminophen tablet (500mg) can kill a seven-pound cat.

5. Keep all prescription and over the counter drugs out of your pets’ reach, preferably in closed cabinets. Pain killers, cold medicines, anticancer drugs, antidepressants, vitamins, and diet pills are common examples of human medication that could be potentially lethal even in small dosages. One regular strength ibuprofen (200mg) could cause stomach ulcers in a ten-pound dog.

6.Never leave chocolates unattended. Approximately one-half ounce or less of baking chocolate per pound body weight can cause problems. Even small amounts can cause pancreatic problems.

7. Many common household items have been shown to be lethal in certain species. Miscellaneous items that are highly toxic, even in low quantities, include pennies (high in concentration of zinc), mothballs (contain naphthaleneor paradichlorobenzene, one or two balls can be life threatening in most species), potpourri oils, fabric softener sheets, automatic dish detergents (contain cationic detergents which could cause corrosive lesions), batteries (contain acid or alkali which can also cause corrosive lesions), home made play dough (contains high quantity of salt), winter heat source agents like hand or foot warmers (contain high levels of iron), cigarettes, coffee grounds and alcoholic drinks.

8. All automotive products such as oil, gasoline, and antifreeze, should be stored in areas away from pet access. As little as one teaspoon of antifreeze (ethylene glycol) can be deadly in a 7-pound cat and less than one tablespoon could be lethal to a 20-pound dog.

9. Before buying or using flea products on your pet or in your household, contact your veterinarian to discuss what types of flea products are recommended for your pet. Read ALL information before using a product on your animals or in your home. Always follow label instructions. When a product is labeled “for use in dogs only” this means that the product should NEVER be applied to cats. Also, when using a fogger or a house spray, make sure to remove all pets from the area for the time period specified on the container. If you are uncertain about the usage of any product, contact the manufacture or your veterinarian to clarify the directions BEFORE use of the product.

10. When treating your lawn or garden with fertilizers, herbicides, orinsecticides, always keep your animals away from the area until the area dries completely. Discuss usage of products with the manufacturer of the products to be used. Always store such products in and area that will ensure no possible pet exposure.
