Keep the New Year Happy – Avoid Kitty Tummy Trouble

Lexi says Happy New YearLet’s hope that the kitties out there do not have Holiday Tummy Trouble.  Let’s face it, our cats have been known to “get into things“. We definitely do not want that to happen. Here is a very short list of human goodies that cats must avoid:

  • Fatty or spicy foods (might be a good idea for some people, too!)
  • Chocolate (yummy for people, not so for cats)
  • Bones (never, never, never)

Everyone at SCRUFF wishes all the cats and people out there a very Happy New Year!

The Holidays Are NOT Quite Over Yet – Pet Safety!

List of things your pets should avoidYou know that the holidays are not quite over yet. We still have a few more days before the New Year, 2020. No doubt many of your readers still have their decorations up. With this in mind, here are a few things that you should not let your cats (and, yes, doggies, too!) get into:

  • Pine needles (and also fir, spruce, and any other kind of tree needle)
  • Mistletoe
  • Holly
  • Amaryllis
  • Poinsettia

Please, let’s make sure out pets each have a Happy New Year!
