5 Steps To Do If You Accidentally  Step On Your Cat


In most cases, stepping on your cat won’t cause any major problems and we’ll naturally retract our foot as soon as we feel our cats beneath us.  Read about the 5 crucial steps in dealing with this issue.

Will My Cat Be Okay?

Take a deep breath and ask  yourself, “Did I just put all my weight on my cat or did I react in time?”  It’s rare that someone is able to accidentally put all their weight on a cat.

1. How Much Weight Did You Put On Your Cat?

You’re not always going to be able to tell exactly what part of your cat you stepped  on. Oftentimes, the accident just happens too fast. But, at least try to figure out which part  you know you didn’t step on.

2. What Part of Your Cat Did You Step On?

There’s a chance your cat is a little freaked out and even if she isn’t injured – she is certainly  surprised. You should approach your cat  slowly and give her some  time to calm down.

3. Check And Pet Your Cat

Pay close attention to your cat over the next few hours. If there’s any kind of fracture or significant internal injuries, you’ll soon notice changes in your cat’s behavior.

4. Continue Watching For Any Behavior Changes

In the end, it’s always a good idea to consult your veterinarian, especially if you notice any changes in your cat’s behavior, or a sensitivity to a specific area.
