‘Tis the Season – December 6, 2010

Well, we all survived Thanksgiving and hopefully we did not overindulge ourselves or our pets.

Next comes Christmas and with Christmas comes some special concerns when it involves our pets. Most Christmas plants are toxic to our pets; Mistletoe, Christmas Rose, Poinsettias and hollies to mention a few. If your pets have a tendency to nibble on your house plants, you might just consider using artificial plants for their safety. Also, if you use a real tree be sure that the water is contained and not available to your pets to drink – it can be toxic. Tinsel,

angel hair and glass ornaments all pose a hazard to our pets. Hang your glass and special ornaments higher on your tree and perhaps, put plastic and wooden ones near the bottom where the cats can play with them.

Now, what about that special gift for your pet? In the Good Housekeeping magazine for December is a really neat idea for a gift as reported by Kit Selzer. Lisa Christopher had three dogs sleeping in her bed and needed to do something about it. She took old suitcases, replaced the lining with appropriate material to match her decor, made cushions with washable covers, for safety, she put dowels in each hinge to keep the lids open. She had brand new beds for her pups. What a great idea for recycling and what dog or cat does not love to sleep in a suitcase!

Wishing you and yours A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
