35. Your cat can be a danger to smaller pets such as reptiles, fish, birds and rodents. Keep your cat away from other pets when unsupervised.

36. When adding a second cat or kitten to your household, clear his health by your vet prior to bringing him home, so you do not expose your first cat to possible illness.

37. Check your garage door before closing it, to avoid injuring any cats perched there.

38. Install baby locks on cabinets where you keep bug spray, household cleaners or medicines. Your smart cat may learn how to open cupboard doors!

39. Invest in covered wastebaskets and garbage cans for your home to prevent cats from finding dangerous items such as chicken bones or dental floss.

40. Always use a carrier when transporting your cat. Even if your cat loves car rides, she may get underfoot or escape if startled.

These are all excellent points and every cat owner should print these out and refer to them often.
