Many people received a pet as a gift for Christmas, especially cats and dogs; the choice to share one’s life with an animal should always be based on the principles of conscious adoption, be ready to use part of our time to dedicate it to an individual of another species, who will always and in any case depend on us for nutrition, daily outings, games and cuddles.
Particular attention must be given to nutrition: the leftovers from holidays can be harmful to our friends: to avoid very seasoned and spicy foods, dried fruit, sweets including pandoro and panettone, chocolate, bones that could cause intestinal blockages or perforation of the stomach and intestines, the raisins contained in many Christmas sweets, which contain a toxic substance for our friends.
Cats have a greater need for solitary moments of relaxation, we can try to interest them with some homemade games that can stimulate their nature as hunters, or by building small paths with bottles, chairs, boxes to jump or dam.
