5 Ways To Keep Your Cat Safe

August 1, 2022
You’ve probably heard the saying about cats having nine lives. Unfortunately for Fluffy, this isn’t true: kitties only get one life, just like the rest of us. However, these little furballs are curious, bold, and, well, sometimes a bit fearless. In this article from Fairfield Animal Hospital, your Cy-Fair, TX, a vet offers some advice on keeping your feline pal safe.

Keep Fluffy In

This makes the top of the list because it really is one of the best things you can do for your kitty. While cats may enjoy going outdoors, they are just vulnerable to far too many dangers to be able to explore safely. Cars, weather, traffic, toxins, wild animals, and parasites are just a few of the things that can pose a threat to an adventurous little furball.


Kitties are very curious, and can get into all sorts of mishaps, even when they are indoors. Anything small or sharp poses a risk to a playful ball of mischief. Items with ropes, strings, or cords are also unsafe: cats love playing with these things, but unfortunately can easily get tangled up. Toxins are another concern. Even small amounts of chemicals can make Fluffy very sick. That list includes dangerous plants, household cleaners, automotive products, medicine … the list goes on. Unsafe foods are also a risk. Ask your vet for tips.

Wellness Care

Keeping up with Fluffy’s parasite control is also very important. Keeping up with Fluffy’s recommended vaccinations can protect her from a whole host of dangerous diseases. Parasite control is also important. Follow your vet’s recommended schedules for wellness care.


We know, cats usually train their humans, rather than it being the other way around. However, you can train Fluffy to stay off counters, and teach her to stay indoors. Getting your feline buddy onboard with dental care can also pay off.

Safe Travel

We always recommend that cats be crated for travel. Too many things can go wrong if you let Fluffy free in the car!


Getting Fluffy fixed won’t just help prevent unwanted litters: it also reduces the chances of her running off and lowers her risk of developing certain health issues. Ask your vet for more information. Here at Fairfield Animal Hospital, your Cy-Fair, TX animal clinic, we are dedicated to offering top-notch care. Please feel free to contact us anytime!
