Shoes for Cats

Publicado por Cristina Mato el 5 Junio 2013

This is Mischief, a cat owned by Jackie Cable. Mischief often jumps onto the kitchen cooker. And when it’s hot, he burns his paws!

“I love my cat, but cooking anything when he is around is very difficult,” says Jackie. “He loves food and stays by my feet. He jumps onto the kitchen cooker. One time the burns were so bad I had to take him to the vet.”

To solve this problem, Jackie got Mischief some special shoes – called Kitten Mittens! Kitten Mittens protect cats from kitchen dangers.

Half of cat owners believe kitchens are dangerous places for pets. The top three dangers are boiling water, owners kicking their pets by accident, and hot ovens.

Does Mischief like his new shoes? “He is happy to wear them and it’s good to know he is safe,” says Jackie. “Now I can relax in the kitchen when I’m cooking!”

  1. Do you think Kitten Mittens are a good idea? Why / why not? Would you get them for your pet?

  2. Do you have a pet? What are the biggest dangers for your pet?

  3. Do you enjoy cooking? What do you like to cook?
