Cat-proofing your home has two goals: protecting your cat and protecting your home. The best time to get started is before your new cat or
kitten arrives to distract you. Your cat can squirm under furniture and discover stuff you never knew was in your house. And he can
climb things and
topple items you never thought he could reach. Curiosity can kill — or at least injure — your
cat. And it can destroy your prized possessions. So think like a cat and start prowling the house for danger.
Look on the bright side: Your house has probably never looked so orderly. Except maybe for the kitten hanging from the drapes. Maybe now's the time to cover the furniture or put the
cat in a room that's designated as a cat-safe area. And break out the cat toys! Congratulations on your new addition.
