Cats can get hurt inside as well as outside of the home. It's up to you to turn your home into a safe haven.
Since every home is unique, the first step is to simply give some thought about what kind of trouble your cat is likely to get into in your living situation. Following are some household dangers to look out for. Most are common sense, but some you may not have known.
Bad medicine: Over the counter medications for humans can be very dangerous for cats. Acetaminophen will poison a cat. Stay-alert formulas can cause convulsions. An externally used local anesthesia can cause anemia. Put meds where they belong -- safely out of reach.
