The 11th animal to be profiled in the 2019 edition of the 12 Strays of Christmas is Maurice.

This playful four-month-old kitten loves to meow and chirp.

He likes everyone he meets and would be suitable for any home.

Pet Tip No 11:

Although a holiday tree is not poisonous, it still poses a hazard.

It is crucial to prevent your pet from chewing on a live or artificial tree as the needles are sharp and can irritate the mouth and digestive tract if eaten.

The needles are also indigestible and could be painful for your pet to pass.

If it is challenging to keep your pet away from the tree, place a pet barrier or child's playpen around the tree to prevent the ingestion of needles as well as your pet from drinking the tree water.

Also, avoid using any artificial snow sprays or scents on your tree.

The 12 Strays of Christmas is a joint project between The Guardian and the P.E.I. Humane Society. For more information, contact the P.E.I. Humane Society at peihumanesociety.com or 902-892-1190.
