MAke sure to check all toys that you give your cat to play

Unless you want an unplanned trip to the vet to make you always want to check out all the toys you give to your favorite cat. Cats play with almost anything, even something that could be dangerous to their health. A quick check to see if any risk of injury is always a good thing. This saves you time and money (emergency trips to the vet is not cheap).

If you have an outdoor cat, there's no telling what they could find and drag home for future games. Semi dead animals are always popular and we often get at home. We have one cat in particular, there are far too smart to hunt an animal that is his size or smaller. The best was a good size tube, which had a lot of life and was very difficult to catch.

Unseen cat doors are convenient, but an opportunity for things you do not want in your present home to bring. I can not tell you how many times I've gone into the laundry room (where our own storage cat flap is located) and found a surprise. It's a good thing to watch out for any input.

Cat Toys at local pet shops or other shops may be some inherent dangers. If you have a cat toy that human participants require, you can risk a little bit when you get there and observe. But if you're like us, cat toys everywhere, and often played with supervision.

We usually inspect cat toys and delete or remove any items that may pose a problem. Even something as innocent as a line of rope or yarn can be swallowed and cause serious problems for your cat. Here is a short list of things to check before you let your cat toys.

Loose - something that can be chewed off and swallowed is not good. Especially if they are made of plastic or man-made material.

Sharp objects - everything a sharp edge or point is a real problem. Metal of any kind should always be checked.

Toxic materials - depending on where the item was manufactured (Chinese recent questions come to mind), they could have used materials that are poisonous. Always check the source or origin of production.

Laser light - These have become very popular and most cats love chasing the light. But you should always be careful not direct light to shine in the eyes of your cat (or man either).

Many cat toys have some sort of movement material to make it more attractive and fun for the cat. But if the toy start to show wear, it's a good idea to get them out of the action. When we see someone who starts to fray and fall apart in the trash will be. Better safe than sorry with worn toys.

It is always a good idea to look at what your cat to play with if you have not given toys. One or our love to keep the keychain to get the desk or table. I can not tell you how many times we had to look for someone else the keys of approximately one hour. And this little devil loves to crack down on the keys, so they go under furniture to make funnier.

Most cat toys are quite safe, especially when a supervisor. But a $ 200 trip to the vet will give you a believer in the control of safety in all cat toys. I love my vet, but I have none of his children through college. So the best way to eliminate potential hazards before they become a problem.
