In the kitchen and bathrooms:

  • Animal proof you cabinets (childlocks work well)
  • Keep all poisonous products on high shelves (Mr.Yuck effects animals too)
  • Keep your trash hidden or covered (protects your pet and saves you cleanup time
  • Keep foods out of reach (even if the food isn’t harmful, the wrapper could be)
  • Keep the toilet lid closed to prevent drowning or drinking of harmful cleaning chemicals

In your family and gathering rooms:
