Cats Are Vulnerable to Pet Suffocation, Too!

This sweet young cat suffocated in January in a plastic food bin, crushing her owners. He flipped the latch trying to get to the food that was in the container, crawled in, and either it latched on its own or one of the owner’s other cats accidentally hit the latch. The owners didn’t find their cat until they arrived home from work.

Sadly, Prevent Pet Suffocation has reported several cats lost to suffocation in plastic bins for food or cat litter. Cats love to get into tight enclosed places. We remind everyone to keep all containers and appliance doors tightly closed and keep food bags and containers off high shelves that cats can easily reach by jumping.
