The Easter Kitty is Coming to Town!

Whether you get up early for church or just sleep in, Easter is a fun holiday to celebrate with both our human and our feline family members! Who does like to wake up to a few surprise treats? However, no holiday is fun if someone gets hurt. Don’t forget to consider your cat’s needs in your last minute preparations for Easter. Here are a few Easter tips:

  • Give your cat their own special food and treats for easter. Candy (especially candy containing the artificial sweeter xylitol) isn’t good for kitties, but cat treats and catnip are purrrfect! Some cats will even hunt for their own Easter eggs.
  • Fill Easter baskets with goodies rather than plastic grass. Those long strands can be a serious (and expensive) medical problem if your cat swallows them. If you must use a filler, try colored paper shreds.
  • Keep your Easter plants outside. Lilies are extremely toxic for kitties! Many other spring flowers are poisonous to cats too. Fake flowers are a much better choice if you want flowers indoors. If your cat gets into something that he/she shouldn’t call your veterinarian right away.
  • If you plan on having guests in your home, make sure your cat has a comfortable place to get away from everyone and be alone. Some cats love to be the center of attention, but others prefer some space. It will be a lot less stressful on you and your cat if your cat can escape when they’ve had enough.
