Keeping pets safe at Halloween

I found a wonderful site on-line to give you all the tips on keeping your cats safe  during the Halloween festivities.

I also want to add that it is important to keep your indoor-outdoor cats inside several days before and after Halloween.

If your dog becomes anxious every time the door-bell rings just put him in a room away from all the noise and strangers until things calm down again.  It helps to leave the radio and a light on in the room. If that doesn't help, disconnect the darn door-bell and let them knock.

I'm looking forward to the 'trick or treaters'. My grandittles , Riley and Bradley will be Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. Little Gwyn will be a ladybug

Audrey wants to hand out the candy...oh goodness!

 "So keep your pets safe and "Happy Halloween, everyone".

Hugs, Deb


  1. Kind of glad my doorbell doesn't work. It use to drive the dogs nuts.

  2. Audrey's glare is not to be messed with!

    Have fun tomorrow!

  3. No trick or treaters in my neighborhood, but I will get to see Tiger in his costume!

  4. Happy Halloween to you all too! Another tip I've used for years - instead of opening and closing the door, I remove the top window from our screen door and hand out candy through that - there's no chance our furry family members can scoot out during all the ruckus!

  5. We close the gates to the backyard to protect the feral cats that find sanctuary there. And we put our inside cats in our bedroom as the constant doorbell ringing and knocking upsets them. But the truth is, we have gotten fewer and fewer kids coming to the door in our neighborhood these last few years. Even though we leave the front porch light on and have a Halloween pumpkin out front, there hasn't been much activity. More people are bringing their kids to church and school parties and this is probably for the best.
