Stress free holidays for cats

Saturday, December 17, 2011
posted by Jim Murphy

Is your cat normally a little high strung?  Will all of the activity with visitors, noise and cooking push him over the edge?  This won’t happen if you follow three simple rules for a stress free feline holiday.

  1. Don’t introduce a new pet during this time. Another puppy and or kitten would send your poor cat over the edge.
  2. Unfamiliar guests could pose additional stress to their system. Remember cats are not usually party animals. Find a safe, quiet retreat for your cat as far from all of the festivities as possible. A bedroom that is not near all of the noise would work well. Keep him there until the last guests are gone.
  3. Remember to give your cat love and attention. Petting a cat reduces blood pressure and anxiety. This works both ways for you and for your cat.

Remember, your pets count!
