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.

It's very important to keep your cats away from roads, my cat was out side with his brother, owned by my sister and she leard after starting to search for him the next day that he had been hit by a car in front of our house. now I keep my cat indors for fear that he could get hit too. My sister got a new kitten and now our cats are best friends and Zeus isn't crying anymore.

Good tips. I'd add to #7 that letting a stray into your home can also introduce any disease or "passengers" (fleas, ticks) the cat may be carrying. To #40, I'd add that any animal loose in a car can become a furry flying missile in the event of an accident, with dire consequences to the animal and possibly to the human(s).
