CHRISTMAS TREE PET SAFETY TIPS FOR A PAWSITIVELY PURRFECT (AND SAFE) HOLIDAY!

 

December has arrived and the holiday season is in full swing. Christmas trees are going up in homes all over the Greater Charlotte area. The holiday season is a joyous time for many, but it can also be a dangerous time for our curious furry friends.  If you have pets in your home, it's important to know how to keep your pets safe.  Christmas  trees, both live and artificial, can pose a variety of hazards to your pets.  Why risk ruining a happy holiday season by taking chances with your pets' well-being?

By the way, did you know that hanging lemon-scented car air fresheners in the tree could deter your cat from climbing it?

Wishing You And Your Pets A Pawsitively, Purrfectly Merry (And Very Safe) Christmas!

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty hi Jeff... they always talk about that danger, but this is the first time I've personally heard that this actually happened.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® hi Sheri... I suppose I've been very fortunate, but I've never had any issues with my cats or dogs and my Christmas trees. The closest my cats get to my trees is to sit under them when there are no gifts there.

These are great tips!  What caught my attention the most was adding chemicals and it boggles my mind why we even have so many harmful chemicals around us today.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX good morning, Dorie... since I've virtually never been "petless" in over 50 years, I'm very tuned-in to this issue. That's why I do an updated post on this subject every year early in December.

Endre Barath, Jr. thanks, Endre. Our pets have a very comfortable life, but our house is not necessarily all about them. But they are not complaining. As I said, they live very comfortably and people who come to our house always say they'd like to come back in a future life as a pet in the Hollander house.

Brian England hi Brian... I wish I had an answer to your question. The use of all sorts of chemicals has certainly grown exponentially since I was growing up.

Michael J. Perry good morning, Michael... I've also been very fortunate having had cats (and dogs) in my home for decades... none have ever done more than sit under the tree.
