Poinsettia and Cala lilies are popular indoor plants around the end of the year as the holiday season approaches. Don’t buy them if you have cats that like to nibble on plants as they are poisonous. Rather invest in pet-friendly orchids or African violets. An alternative are realistic-looking silk plants.

Mani-pedis are really important for both dogs and cats. If left unattended, nails can grow into the skin. Not only is this painful but it also makes walking extremely difficult. If you struggle to trim nails, both a groomer or the vet’s office can help. Some adoption agencies offer free nail trims for life. So be sure to ask when you adopt.

A nice cat scratching post will also help keep nails in good shape.
