While adorable, costumes may stress your cat. Opt for pet-friendly options and ensure a comfortable fit. Monitor for signs of discomfort and allow your cat to choose.
Be cautious with Halloween treats. Keep candies and chocolates out of reach as they can be toxic to cats. Provide safe, cat-friendly treats to join in the festive spirit.
Halloween decorations can pose dangers. Secure dangling decorations, avoid open flames, and be mindful of small objects that your cat may bat around or ingest.
Guests and trick-or-treaters can be overwhelming. Create a quiet space for your cat to retreat, reducing stress. Ensure they have access to food, water, and a familiar environment.
Halloween can be noisy. Keep your cat in a quiet room away from loud festivities. Consider providing background noise like soft music to mask unfamiliar sounds.
With doors opening frequently, ensure your cat has an ID collar. In case of an accidental escape, proper identification increases the chances of a safe return.
After Halloween, check for any hazards left behind. Dispose of wrappers, inspect decorations, and ensure your home is free of potential dangers for your curious cat.
