Macchiato here and I just wanted to get my furry friends whiskers tingling with some important mews. That time of year when our humans start going crazy with decorations, strange people coming to our home and food food food.
Right meow I’d like to get your tails twitching with the one that is about to come up, Halloween. There are several things that we need to watch out for as our humans may be too busy to keep an eye out for us.
All of those crazy pumpkins out there, many have candles in them and if we are too curious we could burn our cute little whiskers. Also, sometimes those humans don’t clean out those pumpkins or leave those cornstalks where we can nibble on them. Even though they aren’t poisonous they can cause our tummies to have some trouble. Then we leave lovely presents on the carpet that our pet parents really don’t want.
Even though it smells so good, all that candy is so bad for us. Chocolate and an artificial sweetener called xylitol can be very dangerous for our little bodies. If by any chance you just can’t resist, be sure your pet parent gets you to either your regular awesome veterinarian or to an emergency clinic right away.
Now it’s about the costumes. Our pet parents aren’t trying to torture us they just want us to feel like part of the fun. But sometimes we get super stressed when they try to have us dress up. In my costume I just feel even more regal and in charge, the way it should be don’t you think!
So many glowy lights to chase and chew! They may be so tempting but those sticks full of liquid light can cause such irritation to our mouth, throat and who wants their pristine coat coated in that goopy stuff.
With the door opening and closing so much, it may be best for us to retire to our favorite spot on our pet parents bed. If for some reason you decide to leave to comfort of your home, hopefully you went prepared with either your collar and tags on and even better you have a microchip for identification. Spending the night at a shelter inside of your warm home would be quite a shame.
Hopefully this information will help everyone have a safe and purrfect Halloween.
