The following safety tips appear in the December 2004 issue of Cat Fancy.

Arrow Keep kitty away from food-preparation areas. Some foods can cause intestinal trouble and poultry bones can splinter and cause blockages.

Arrow Poinsettias, holly berries, mistletoe and the holiday tree make inappropriate snacks. Toxicity may vary, but vomiting and diarrhea are likely.

Arrow Ribbon, tinsel and string can be swallowed and cause serious intestinal problems requiring surgery.

Arrow Put candles where pets can't get to them. Animals can purn themselves or others, or knock cancles over and cause a fire.

Arrow Hide wiring. These are not chew toys and can shock or electrocute pets.

Arrow Disrupting a cat's living quarters can result in spraying or refusal to use the litterbox.

Arrow Provide a safe room where kitty can escape the festivities.

Arrow Cats not used to a lot of strangers, particularily children, can become agressive. Let your cat retire to its own space.

Arrow Get your can used to a breakaway collar so it will have identification in the event of an escape.

Arrow Only travel with your cat if it can ride with you in the airplace cabin.
