Cigarette Smoke and Your Cat

You may be well aware of the dangers of cigarette smoke to humans but you may not have considered the dangers to your cat. If you allow smoking in your home, your cat will be exposed to the smoke all day and all night without any chance to escape. All the surfaces in your home will be covered with smoke residue and your cat will absorb these poisons through her skin while on those surfaces. And she will ingest the smoke residue whenever she grooms herself. Thus the best thing for your cat is to make your home smoke-free. If this is not possible, air out your home as often as you can. Wash all surfaces and cloth your cat hangs out on with hot water often. Wipe your cat with disposable cleaning towelettes to keep her clean. Learn more from your veterinary clinic Teller County, CO.
