Cats and kids
Most cats are surprisingly tolerant of children. Children and cats can both benefit from the lessons we can teach them on how to get along with each other.
Teach your children to respect the cat. This includes not shouting, laughing loudly, or jumping around the cat. Cats get frightened easily, thus the term "scaredy-cat." Have them approach any cat from a sitting position in order to be non-threatening. Give your children and cat playtime to bond. Cats need exercise and energy release, just like children.
These tips can help your household - as well as any households you visit with your pet - to have a happy and safe holiday.
Teach your children well. . .
