    Outdoor Kitten Hazards

    Articlegeneral cat adviceFriday 20 May 2011

    There are many things in the great outdoors which can pose hazards to your kitten. This guide to kitten care will give you some ideas on how you can reduce the risks of outdoor hazards.


    Wandering Kittens


    There are a couple of ways you can minimise your kitten from wandering off. You should stop your kitten from going out between dusk and dawn. Cats are more likely to wander further if they cannot be seen. Neutering your kitten will also help to reduce wandering. Make sure that your garden is full of exciting things to keep your kitten busy, if your garden is fun and inviting then your kitten will not need to investigate any further afield.


    Plants which are Poisonous for Kittens


    As a rule if any plants in a garden centre are marked toxic to humans then it will be to your kitten as well. You can also find a list of poisonous plants to cats on Kitten Ads. Other things which kittens find poisonous are weed killer, antifreeze and slug pellets.




    Although trees might appear harmless kittens like to climb and they will climb so high they find it hard to get down. Cat claws only bend in one direction so climbing down the tree is much more difficult than getting up it. If your kitten gets stuck up a tree then you should try to coax him down with food, if this doesn’t work then you can try and get the kitten by climbing a ladder. If you fail to get your kitten down then you can call the RSPCA and they can call the fire brigade to rescue the cat.
