Just wanted to post a reminder to be careful with pets during Christmas - all those decorations/candles even flowers (such as poinsettia) can prove to be tempting especially to cats and young animals. Apparently tinsel is particularly dangerous because if it is swallowed it can tangle in the intestines and needs a serious op to remove it. . Also keep the chocs well away from anywhere that your dog can get to as large amounts are poisonois to them.

Good info, when our cat was a kitten she was obsessed with the twinkling fairy lights - we had to switch them off in the end as she got tangled up and nearly pulled the tree down on top of herself.

Thanks for the tips, I didn't realise poinsetta could be a risk to cats.
