Make the bathroom and kitchen safe from cats: tips


When a cat comes into the house, it is important to make special preparations. The bathroom and kitchen, in particular, easily turn out to be danger zones for the house tiger - but with a few simple steps, these places can also be quickly made cat-safe.

Just as bathrooms and kitchens should be made child-safe when the next generation registers, it is also important to make these rooms cat-safe when you buy a velvet paw. In doing so, you should not only remove possible toxins and pollutants from the cat's mouth, but also consider that your cat will climb and jump around in all possible and impossible places in the house or apartment.

Make the bathroom safe from cats

Washing machines and dryers are downright classic sources of danger in the bathroom: Before switching on the devices, always make sure that the cat has not made himself comfortable in the drum between the items of laundry. It is best to always leave the drum door closed. If you keep a drying rack or ironing board in the bathroom, set up the devices so that they do not suddenly fall over and can injure your pet. You should always keep cleaning products and medication safe from cats in a lockable cupboard so that your cat does not accidentally eat it and may poison itself.

If you are in the process of taking a bath, the cat must not play unattended in the bathroom - the risk is too great that it will slide on the edge of the tub when balancing, fall into the water and will not be able to get out of the smooth tub. The toilet lid should also always be closed - especially when cats are still small, they can otherwise fall into the toilet bowl and even drown in it.

Avoid dangers for the cat in the kitchen

The number one source of danger in the kitchen is the stove: it is best not to let your cat in the kitchen while you are cooking - this way you avoid not only burned paws on the stove, but also cat hair in the food. By the way, you should also exercise caution when handling the toaster - if the cat gets in, it can happen that it gets stuck with the paw and burns itself.
