When adopting a cat you have to adjust your home to their needs. Otherwise, the cats might get bored, start scratching your furniture and start knocking stuff off the dresser and shelves. However, this doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your own personal space for the sake of your feline friend; you simply have to find the balance, create safe environment and provide some entertainment.
Step by Step Instructions
Remove anything breakable
-People love to accessorize, but if you have figurines and other decorative bits and pieces that are easily breakable, it would be best to replace them with something else or completely remove them. Curious kittens and grown cats love to play with small objects and they’ll probably break anything that they find on their way, especially if it’s kept on the table or a shelf. You can decorate your home with wall ornaments and unbreakable accessories, or keep those that can be destroyed somewhere that’s out of the paw’s reach.
Take care of leftovers – If there are some food leftovers, make sure to store them in the fridge immediately, so that the cat doesn’t get to them first. This can be very dangerous because there are certain foods that cat shouldn’t be allowed to consume. Also, don’t neglect your garbage bags that can be very inviting for a cat to go through as well, so get them out as soon as possible.
Store chemicals safely – Better to be safe than sorry. Therefore, remember to always place a protective lid on all your bottles holding some kind of a dangerous chemical. Keep all your cleaning products stored away in cabinets or even outside. Also, beauty products can be very dangerous for a pet when consumed, so make sure that your vanity table is always neat and all your skincare and makeup products neatly sealed and stored.
