Leaving your pets outside on Halloween is not a very good idea. Only last week was the story of the malicious people who injured a cat. Just to be aware that dogs and cats can scare easily with all the trick-or-treaters coming to your home.
Here are some tips to keep your pets safe and happy this Halloween.
Remember, your pets can't tell you what's wrong and what bothers them. They are more easily frightened since they have no idea what's going on. Be sympathetic and treat them like you'd want to be treated if you were them!
Just because you think a certain Halloween costume for pets is cute doesn't mean that they will enjoy wearing them! Try it on them in advance and see how they react.
Having an adult party? Remember, dogs, cats, birds and other animals do not like being intoxicated. Some at the party may think it's funny to get an animal drunk but it can kill them. It's better to hurt someone's feelings by telling them to leave the party than to deal with a seriously ill pet.
When you are buying Halloween treats for your visitors and kids? Don't forget to pick up a box of dog or cat treats for them as well!
