Kitten Proofing Your Home for Your RagaMuffin Kittens 

Before you bring your RagaMuffin kittens or RagaMuffin cat home, be sure to follow the instructions on kitten proofing your home. Kaerik RagaMuffins will provide any person that adopts one of our kittens with a "Kitty Care Guide" containing lots of information on the care of your kitten, including advice about kitten proofing your home. Tie all blind chords up out of your kitten's reach.  Use the “child proof” caps for all electrical outlets.  Be careful that any sewing items, such as needles and pins, yarn, thread, etc., are not laying around.  Cover electrical cords so that your kitten does not chew on them.  Do not let your kittens play with a teaser toy while they are unsupervised.  Any fine collectibles that are within your kitten's reach should be put away until your kitty is about a year old.  Check your house for small objects laying around that your kitten might decide are ”toys” and inadvertently swallow them.   Anything they can get to with STRING on it should be considered dangerous (watch the dental floss you throw in the wastebasket each day and watch rubberbands). Be careful that your kitten does not have access to any pieces of aluminum foil that you have discarded, as this can be dangerous to them if swallowed. Make sure all toilet seats are kept down, so your kitty does not jump in!

Watch for the following chemicals that are hazardous to cats. 

Drain Cleaners: If you use them, BE SURE to keep the door to your bathroom closed tight until you can rinse the chemicals well and be sure there is no residue. Cats will often lick the bottom of a sink and drain cleaners are clear fluid and very toxic.

Antifreeze: Tastes sweet, commonly found on garage floor, by the time your cat shows symptoms, it's too late.

Pine Cleaning Products: Highly toxic. Sap from Christmas trees is also toxic. While thinking of the holidays, please be aware that tinsel can lodge in the intestines of your kitty, so do not use tinsel on your tree. A vet once told me that he was inundated after Christmas with cats that had ingested tinsel, in some cases requiring surgery.
