If you're hosting a Thanksgiving, there's a good chance you will have some kids in your house. For pets who aren't usually around kids, this is a new and educational experience. Find out from the kids' parents how much they know about pets and if they've ever been around them before. Sometimes small kids don't understand the proper way to touch a pet and can cause serious harm. Prepare to quarantine your pets away from the kids during dinner.
