Most of us love the holidays (I do know some one who does not).  Our cats seem to think that it is a whole new playground with shiny ornaments, new plants, new smells and rustling paper.  Over the years I have treated many Oops! that cats did.  Most of us know about tinsel and the danger of the cat eating it.  It causes vomiting and the need for surgery to remove.  Poinsettas are frequently mentioned as a hazard, but they are not as dangerous as mistletoe, rosemary,or lillies - Amaryllis is a lilly.  The candles and simmer pots are especially enticing to the cat with the dancing lights and the smells!  I have treated more than one cat for burns of many types.  They ranged from being minor like singed whiskers and fur to burns needing cosmetic surgery to cover with skin.  Keep the candles in areas that cats cannot reach or go.  Maybe lock them up for that fancy holiday dinner or party.
