Cat Caturday and a safe Memorial Day

Happy Caturday. Keep your cats safe this Memorial Day weekend.


Keeping your cats safe this Memorial Day weekend should be at the top of your to-do list for what traditionally marks the beginning of the summer season.

Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day sort of sandwich in the 3 layers of summer, and we want to make it a safe and fun season for us humans and our cats.

With parades, barbecues, your get-togethers, your neighbor’s parties and even a few fireworks getting touched off, you need to keep watch of your kitty to make sure he’s safe. The best option is keeping them inside. If they must go out, keep a close tab on them because darting in the wrong direction across a busy highway or not so busy country road could end in disaster.

Keep Kitty Inside is best way to keep cat safe this Memorial Day Weekend

A scared cat can run for miles to get away from fear. If your cat hears fireworks, he may be gone for days. Again, staying inside is the best option to keep your cat safe this Memorial Day. If your pet goes missing, it’s stressful for them and for you.

If you are having a house full of people, let kitty have a safe room away from the crowd. He won’t be stressed and will be a happier cat.

Did you know cats will become extremely stressed by all the extra activity in the neighborhood? Consequently, they may go seeking a safe place to hide. That can cause them to disorient and go missing. In light of this, make sure your pet has been microchipped and, even better, add a pet-id so that if they go missing, you can easily be re-united.

Never leave alcoholic drinks unattended where pets can reach them. Alcohol, even beer, has the potential to poison pets. If ingested, you pet could become very intoxicated and weak, severely depressed or even go into a coma. In severe cases, it can result in death from respiratory failure.
