Kids With Pets: Our Top 3 Tips For Pet Safety With Kids

Ever worry your kids might wrestle your pup like a giant chew toy, or your kitty might take a swipe at your little explorer's grabby hands? We feel you! Living in a house with both kids and pets can be a bit ruff sometimes, but fear not!  Here at Miminko, we're all about helping our furry friends and little adventurers become the BEST buds ever.

So, buckle up and get ready for 3 super-duper easy tips to keep the fur-ever fun going!

  • Tip 1: Speak the Pet Lingo! ️
  • Just like us humans, our furry friends have their own way of saying "Hi!" or "Hey, back off!"  Help your little ones become pet translators by teaching them to recognize animal body language. A wagging tail means playtime, while puffed-up fur and swishing tails mean it's time to give some space. The more your kids understand what your pet is saying, the safer and happier everyone will be!

  • Tip 2: Build Secret Tunnels (For Kitties, Not Ninja Kids!) 
  • Cats love to roam and hide, and sometimes they just need a little "me time" away from the hustle and bustle of little humans. Make your home meow-gical by creating escape routes for your pet friend. This could be a cat tree in a quiet corner or even a special kitty door in a baby gate. This way, your kitty can feel safe and secure whenever they need a break.

  • Tip 3: Boundaries are Our Besties! ✋
  • No one likes to be fussed over when they're not in the mood, especially our furry pals. Teach your little ones to be gentle with their pets and to understand when playtime is over.  It's also super important to NEVER force your pet to cuddle or play if they don't want to. Remember, you're the grown-up whisperer, so help your kids understand the importance of respecting both their pet's space and their bodies.


  • Bonus Tip: Sharing is Caring!
  • Want your little ones to become the ultimate pet pals? Get them involved in taking care of your furry friends!  Even little kiddos can help with simple tasks like filling food bowls or brushing fur.  This will help your kids feel responsible and create a special bond with their pet pals.

    So there you have it! With a little bit of know-how, your house can be a haven of happy purrs, playful barks, and endless giggles.  And remember, if you have any questions or your tips to share, let us know! We love hearing from our Miminko fam! @miminko_us or
