How to Kitten-Proof Your Home

5. Appliances and Furniture

Finally, look for furniture and appliances that could be hazardous to your kitten. Kittens will explore, play or nap in small, dark places like the washer or dryer, the sleeper sofa or beneath the recliner. Always check inside your washer and dryer before you turn them on, and do a kitten search before folding up the sleeper sofa or lowering the footrest of a recliner.

The good news is that most kittens grow up pretty quickly and aren’t quite so prone as puppies to getting into trouble. The bad news is that kittens grow up pretty quickly, so enjoy those kinetic bundles of joy while you can!
