Hazards of Appliances and Containers for Pets

Have you ever found your dog or cat sleeping or playing in an appliance or container? Though cats are prone to hiding in enclosed and small places like bins, plastic containers, and washers and dryers, some dogs like it, too! Both pets may seek out hiding places if they are frightened or nervous.

We need to watch both carefully. Cats’ agility allows them to easily jump on food counters, tables, and refrigerators where they have easier access to food bags and containers. ⁣Dogs can be very strong and easily open doors, drawers, closets, and trash cans that aren’t tightly secured.

⁣So, what can you do?⁣

⁣🐱 Be extra cautious when leaving bags on top of the fridge, in the laundry room or garage, and on countertops and shelves.⁣

⁣🐱 Cut up all bags and dispose of them properly.⁣

⁣🐱 Keep all containers tightly closed and safely out of reach of your pets.⁣

⁣🐱 Always close drawers and appliance lids like washers and dryers.⁣

⁣Our pets are smart and curious, and we have to stay on our toes! Visit the link in our bio for more helpful tips and information. 🐱
