You know those decorative little wire things that look like miniature fences…the ones you use to surround your flower beds?  They can be hazardous to your cats.
A few days ago I heard this awful caterwauling and went out to discover one of my twin kittens hanging from her paw on one of these.  She was apparently climbing the thing and got her paw caught between the wires.  Not a happy kitty at all.  I had to get the wire cutters and hold her up while I extracted her paw…she used the free paw to shred my arm. She limped around for a couple of days and is still pouting…like this was my fault.  Anyway, be careful of those things.  I removed mine.

I think my yard is Kitten proofed - no fences of that type.  We use rock as borders.  The cats walk on them, but no claw problems and it saves wear and tear on the arm.
