I remember when I was growing up, every time we would visit my grandmothers during the holidays… her poor cat would seek refuge under the bedroom bed and cry. While there are many cats out there that happily welcome new guests in the home, there are also a good amount of skittish cats out there that get stressed by the constant traffic of new people coming in and out of the house during the holidays. So many new faces, sounds and commotion can really cause cats to become stressed. I have come up with some simple and effective tips for keeping your cat happy during the holidays!
Make Sure Your Cat Is Wearing ID Tags
Not everyone has pets and knows the importance of keeping doors shut when you have an indoor cat. With so many people coming in and out of the front door, this gives your cat many opportunities to find their way out the door. Making sure that your indoor cat is micro-chipped and wearing ID tags during the holidays is very important for if they make their way outside. I always notice an increase in missing and lost pets during the holidays, so make sure your cat has the proper identification if they are found outside the home.
Create a safe haven for your cat
If keeping your cat from bolting out the front door is stressing you out too much, then set a up a temporary safe haven for your cat. Allow them to peacefully stay in a private and enclosed area with all of her personal belongings (food, water, litter box, toys, and scratching pads.) This will also prevent small children from bothering your cat and those guests that swear they are cat people but are visibly causing your sweet cat distress.
Provide Your Cat With A Private Place To Use Their Litter Box
Make sure that you provide your cat with a safe and private place where they can feel comfortable using their litter box. This should be in a location where they can safely get to it without having to sneak past guest. You don’t want your poor cat holding it or having accidents because they are too frightened to get to their litter box! You may have to set up a temporary place for your litter box until guest are gone for the holidays… which is perfectly fine when you are using a litter that can keep your house smelling fresh no matter where you put the litter box.
We always make sure to have ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL on hand during the holidays because the last thing you want is for your guest to smell the litter box when they’re in your home. This is always my #1 choice in litter because no other litter forms a tight seal around odor and destroys it with unique odor eliminators and baking soda. I recently picked up the new ARM & HAMMER™ CLUMP & SEAL™ Microguard™ from my local PetSmart, this particular litter provides bacterial odor control in the litter box for up to 7 days. I have been so pleased with how this new litter has kept the odor under control! Did you know that even after you’re done scooping, bacterial odor can keep growing. The innovative, new MicroGuard technology seals and destroys immediate odor, plus, prevents the growth of future bacterial odor for 7 day odor control, guaranteed! Make sure to stop by your local PetSmart and stock up on this litter for the holidays!
I hope that you enjoy these useful tips for keeping your cat happy during the holidays! This can be a very stressful time of year for pets, so please make sure to do the best you can to keep your pets happy and healthy!
