Winter Cat Care:
Fireworks: The noise and flashing lights from fireworks can be distressing for pets.Follow these simple tips to keep your pet safe and sound: keep cats in after dark and provide them with a litter tray; make sure they feel secure in a settled familiar territory; ensure all doors and windows are securely closed and curtain are drawn; play soothing music; consider using a pheromone diffuser or spray (available from pet shops and vets).
Antifreeze: As we prepare for winter it is timely to point out the danger to cats of antifreeze the smell of which cats find enticing. The majority of antifreeze products contain the active ingredient ethylene glycol (EG) which is fatally toxic to cats in very small quantities as it causes acute kidney failure. An animal that has ingested EG must receive immediate medical attention; signs of poisoning may include vomiting and the cat looking drunk or wobbly. If you suspect your cat has swallowed antifreeze contact your vet without delay. Accidental poisonings can result from spills, leaks and the use in ponds and garden water features so please take extra care when using and storing such products whether you own a cat or not!
