Halloween Pet Safety

Be sure to keep your pet in a protected area where your pet feels safe! Spooked pets can get lost. Doorbells and excited trick-or-treaters can make pets nervous. Opening the door for costumed kids can make for an easy escape. Try to plan ahead and prepare a safe, quiet room for your cat or dog to relax in. Make sure that your pet has an ID tag with current information, just in case they get scared and escape.

Playing soothing music or turning on the television to muffle loud noises outside can also help. Use Psy-stabil natural homeopathic drops or Happy Paws Hemp Extract to calm your pet.  Do not leave your pet outdoors on Halloween.

Halloween and The Black Cat

Halloween brings thoughts of iconic symbols: jack-o-lanterns, ghosts , goblins and black cats. Although Halloween can be a fun and festive time for friends and family it can be especially dangerous time for black cats. Most shelters won’t adopt out a black cat for a few weeks before Halloween in an effort to protect them.  There is a lot of mythology and superstitions about black cats which can make them very vulnerable at this time of year.  To be safe, it is recommended that you keep your kitty inside (even if they enjoy the great outdoors)  for a few weeks leading up to Halloween.  On Halloween night,  make sure your cat is in a safe place, as the noise from trick-or-treaters and doorbells can frighten them.
