The holidays are a busy time with lots of people coming and going, different foods and unfamiliar smells to arouse the curiosity of our cats. Below are some tips to keep our cats safe from toxic foods and careless relatives. So many foods and plants are toxic to cats, but to avoid overwhelming you, here is a list of things (that your pets should avoid) that are most likely to be around during the holidays:
Turkey – is okay for your cat, but make sure it is boneless and well-cooked. Undercooked meat can contain salmonella bacteria and small bones can lodge in your kitty’s digestive tract and be fatal.
Sage – is a yummy herb, but it and many other herbs contain essential oils and resins that are very dangerous to our cats and dogs.
