We all know, “if they fits, they
sits,” so you can’t blame your
cat for horning in on your gift
exchanges. Letting her play among
the empty boxes and paper as you
unwrap presents will make her feel
a part of the celebration.
• Be careful of what you use
when wrapping your gifts. Ribbon
and string may be irresistible to
kitty, especially if you include bells
or shiny tinsel. String and ribbon
can get twisted inside your cat’s
intestines if swallowed, which
could prove fatal.
• Wrap up a new toy or some
treats for your cat, and let her
have fun opening a safely wrapped
package of her own.

garlic, raisins, grapes, milk, alcohol,
chocolate, or caffeine. All can cause

can be fatal.
