Cats are known for their curious and adventurous nature. Curiosity doesn't always kill cat, but can often cause injury. The owner will likely have to get cat stabilized before taking it to veterinarian. Any home with a cat should have a feline first aid kit assembled and handy.
A first aid kit for a cat contains many of same items it would for a human.
* A roll of absorbent cotton and some cotton balls, * gauze pads and tape, * a pair of small scissors with rounded tips, * tweezers, * instant ice pack, * hydrogen peroxide, * a bulb syringe for suctioning mucous from mouth or nose * sterile eyewash solution for cats, * a clean, white cotton sock (to cover wounded paws), * small flashlight, * rectal thermometer, * injection syringe without needle (to give liquid medication), * unflavored electrolyte liquid (like Pedialyte).
Place all items in a sturdy plastic container with a secure lid. Write your veterinarian's name and phone number on lid, as well as that of closest emergency pet hospital. If you travel often and leave your cat with another person, put several copies of a signed release form in first aid kit authorizing caregiver to approve necessary treatment.
Cat are great explorers and care must br taken with potential hazards in and around home. particularly with young kittens. watch out for hot surfaces and liquids in kitchen, unguarded fires, electric cables, sewing pins and needles (especially with cotton attached) and open windows on upper stories.
In garden make sure dustbins are secure as cats may scavenge and eat decayed food or cut themselves on tins or glass. Being inquisitive, cats accidentally get shut in a shed or garage.
