Home Appliance Safety Protocols
Some cats love finding hidey holes for new nap spots. But some places can be dangerous for them.
Prevent your cat from getting stuck or injured by keeping it away from the most dangerous spots in your home.
While taking our rescued cats to ERs, we've overheard in the ER Lobby so many times cats getting hurt because of washers, dryers & dishwashers. Cats can suffer serious injury, including broken bones, burns, heat stroke, damaged internal organs, and death, if the appliance is turned on. It only takes a few minutes too, unfortunately. What to Do:
Keep the door tightly shut and always check inside before you use the appliance. (The same goes for the dishwasher, oven, and refrigerator.) You should also make sure your cat isn't hiding in your dirty clothes hamper because you could accidentally dump your pet in with the wash.
