White and brown cat lying down having a nap

We’ve all been there. You see your cat sat high up, looking you dead in the eyes while pawing at something valuable over the edge.

Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do to prevent the mischief. There are however, a few hazardous things you can avoid around your home in order to keep your feline friend safe and secure.

Luckily, the lovely team at Sainsbury’s Bank has created a guide to help you do just that.

There are many simple ways you can make your home safer for your pet, such as keeping harmful foods out of reach from prying paws. Foods most toxic to cats include grapes and raisins, chocolate, raw eggs, caffeinated drinks and alcohol - all of which can cause serious harm.

It’s also good to look out for any exposed wires and cords lying around your house and as you would with young children and keep any medicines or cleaning products well out the way of curious cats.

Take a look at the guide below for some other great tips on cat-proofing your home.
