Kitten-Proofing Your Home

Just like new parents must 'baby-proof' their homes, you must 'kitten-proof' yours before your new kitten arrives. Kittens have a lot of energy and they're very curious, so you need to take steps to make your home as safe as possible.

Collect all small and breakable objects like nick-knacks and put them in a room that's off-limits to your kitten. Keep the door to the 'off-limits' room closed.

Many houseplants are poisonous if ingested. Move plants to the off-limits room.

Remove all tablecloths or your kitten might climb or hang on them.

Make sure all potentially toxic products, such as bathroom and kitchen cleaners, are secured in a cabinet with a latch.

Unplug all small household appliances when you're not using them. Your kitten might nibble on the electrical cords. Also, inspect your home for any frayed electrical cords that can shock your kitten if she tries to play with them.

Cut cords on blinds or wrap them tightly around a bracket to prevent accidental hanging.

Close all doors and windows and make sure screens are tightly secured.

Leaving unscreened windows open can cause kittens escape or fall out. While you may have heard tales about cats surviving falls from high buildings, a fall from a second story can actually seriously injure or kill a cat.
