Have a pet safe Christmas

Top tips to help ensure your pets have a great Christmas

Christmas is great! There are presents, fantastic food and we get to spend time with family and friends. But, did you know that Christmas can be hazardous and stressful for your pets?

Festive food 

Festive food is delicious to us but to our pets many of it is highly toxic and dangerous. Chocolate, mince pies, Christmas pudding, onion gravy and alcohol are all poisonous for our pets and the bones from carcasses are a dangerous choking hazard. 

Keep your pets safe by making sure food is stored securely out of reach. Be prepared for any accidents by ensuring that you've taken out pet insurance - take out our pet insurance with us and you'll be helping pets in our care have a Merry Christmas too.

If you think your pet has eaten anything they shouldn't have, stay calm and speak to your vet immediately.


It can be tempting to shower our pets with tasty treats. But extra weight gain can lead to health problems, so to keep your pet happy and healthy keep treats to a minimum. If you do treat them to something extra, make sure the calories are accounted for in their daily food ration and feed them a little less for dinner.

Festive decorations

Festive food isnt the only hazard to consider around Christmas time, some household items can also be dangerous too. Some plants and flowers including poinsettias, holly, ivy, mistletoe and lilies can be toxic, so avoid these if you have pets.

Tinsel and wrapping paper might be tempting for your pet to play with but make sure they don't eat it! 

Help your pet cope with Christmas Chaos

Christmas is often busy and chaotic. Help your pet cope with the chaos by keeping to their normal routine, as much as possible.

Provide your pet somewhere cosy and quiet where they can retreat to and have their own space away from the festive excitement. When your pet is in their quiet spot, make sure they are left alone and not disturbed by children or other guest. 

Give your pet the best Christmas gift!

There are plenty of toys and treats on the market for your pet - but how many will help your pet have fun whilst also helping other animals live a life free from neglect and cruelty?

Help keep your pets entertained over the festive period.

Tabby DSH, 8 years old, female.Beautiful Millie is a dainty cat who although shy initially, is very affectionate and friendly when she's approached quietly. She feels safest when she has a nice cosy place to hide and get her bearings. She is looking for a quiet home with an older family, as unfortunately she was quite nervous of the children in her previous home. She is looking forward to being in a new home with and will be a lovely companion for someone.
Black DSH female, 5 years old.Hettie is a very beautiful girl with her stunning jet black coat. She can be very affectionate and sociable, rubbing round your legs and purring. She does sometimes prefer to get away from it all, but soon comes back to you for more fuss. We feel she'll be much more relaxed and contented in a home environment and will be a lovely companion. She is looking for an older family to settle down with. She would like to be the only pet so she can be number one in your life.
Ginger Tabby domestic short haired 11 years old.Jasper is a true gentleman in every sense of the word. With his gorgeous ginger coat and handsome face and loving calm nature he is a pleasure to have around. He loves to be picked up and cuddled and fussed and he also likes to have a chat too. He would suit a calm environment that's not too hectic as he likes a cosy lap to sit on.
Tortie and white DSH, female, 10 years old approx.Cookie is a little sweetheart with a heart of gold. She loves nothing more than a snuggle on your lap and a lovely fuss. She is very affectionate and sweet natured. She is looking for a special someone to give her the love and care she so deserves. Cookie would like to be the only pet of the household so she can lap up all the attention. Cookie is currently in a foster home, so cannot be viewed at the cattery. Please speak to a member of staff if you are interested in adopting this beautiful little cat.
