|People often think of a hungry Labrador tipping over the kitchen garbage can to get at the contents, but cats can be just as interested. The things you throw into your kitchen can do not belong in your cat’s mouth, but unless you hide that can away or make it inaccessible, the contents are fair game for a curious cat.
Some of the dangerous enticements are meat and chicken bones or paper and foil with food clinging to it. You might want to take the smellier items to an outside garbage bin. In addition, either keep the kitchen garbage can under the sink with a childproof latch on the door or use a metal can with step-on lid.
