Kitten Proofing Your Home

It’s your kitten’s new home, but there are lots of potential hazards lying in wait.

After all, kittens are babies, which means they’re lively and curious. This can lead to serious trouble unless you take preventative measures.

Keep in mind that a kitten has a lower vantage point than yours — like a baby who has begun to crawl — and may be attracted to things you cannot see when you are standing. It’s almost impossible to completely kitten-proof your home against accidents, but it’s still important to do what you can – it’s for your kitten’s safety, after all.
