Imagine that one day everything went from perfectly normal and acceptable to upside down and topsy-turvy. Pets experience this hair-raising surrealism throughout the year (Christmas, Fourth of July, etc.), but it’s never quite as freaky as the weeks leading up to, and including the actual day of, Halloween.
What can a pet owner do to not only make their pet feel safe, but reduce or eliminate potential hazards? Here is our Halloween pet safety practices to use at home and beyond!
The Usual Suspects
Cats can be pretty awesome during the holidays. Sure, they probably won’t wear the matching ugly Christmas sweater you knitted for them, but they might allow you to wrap presents while napping on top of the festive paper or attacking your scissors – if you’re lucky. Indeed, many cats like the lights, sparkles, and revelry as much as we do, but that doesn’t mean holiday cat safety can be set aside due to joyful pouncing.
Remember when we were blogging about parasite prevention last spring? It’s hard to believe we’re already rounding the corner toward winter and the holidays, but here we are!
When you think about this time of year, perhaps only the good things come to mind. While scrumptious food, piles of presents, and beautiful decor certainly contribute to the general splendor, they also provide dangerous opportunities for your pet. That’s why we’ve got holiday pet safety on our minds – and we hope you do, too!
