Halloween and bonfire night both present dangers to our feline friends. International Cat Care have released a reminder of the dangers and risks facing cats at this time of year.
Glow sticks are very easy for cats to chew through. These glow sticks contain dibutyl phthalate, which makes cats foam at the mouth with immediate effect. If your cat gets her teeth into a glow stick iCatCare recommend diluting the chemical with a small amount of milk, tuna juice or some tinned cat food. We also recommend that any glow stick liquid is quickly cleaned up if it is spilled.
Cats are not a fan of fireworks. The loud noises are frightening and they cause many cats to panic and flee increasing the risk of a traffic injury or getting lost. You may notice that a nervous cat may increase their grooming during and after fireworks or even have an accident in the house that is out of character.
ICatCare shared the following advice for nights when fireworks are being let off in your neighbourhood and surrounding areas.
Further advice is available on the iCatCare website.
All prices are in GBP.
