Put child locks on cabinets with dangerous chemicals or objects, prevent them from going under dressers by blocking it off. Put things high up... do NOT leave them on the second shelf or something where they can pull things down on them. Keep knives and scissors, push pins, tack, nails, screws, sharp objects, and shiny, attractable objects tucked in a draw. Keep glass off the bottom shelves. Block off behind recliners!!! Put signs on your front, or back door, saying to watch your step for kittens, because it's sometimes easy to forget. If they are still small, make sure momma's water dish is in a different room, or any other water holding things, until they are big enough. Make sure there is nothing they can burn themselves on. It is suggested to keep the bathroom doors closed, so that they can not get into the bathtub, or toilet, and drown, especially when the bath is filled. Watch your step when you get up in the morning at all times. You must not forget this... it could cost a life, or keep them out of your room at night, and any naps.
If I missed anything... please feel free to add, anyone!
And no, momof6mews... it's not stupid. How do you learn other than asking questions? This is your first litter... how are you supposed to know?
There is a saying....
