Yes, Halloween, for those who celebrate, is only a couple days away. My oldest is fifteen, so will not be trick or treating this year, my middle is twelve and student body president, so therefore will be handing out candy to the littles at the school, which with the weather, will be the only trick or treating my little does this year. But this being said, the kids safety is not what worries me on this wonderful day. It is the safety of my animals.
Will my critters suffer this halloween? Well, I don’t dress them up, so that is one stress gone. We didn’t do jackolanterns this year, so I don’t have to worry about the cats knocking one over and burning down my house ( when I was a kid, they didn’t have battery tea lights). On that note, glow sticks make a great option, as well! I wont be home, and our road is closed anyway, so we get no trick or treaters, so I don’t have to worry about the pets escaping. But, I do have to worry if they get a piece of candy. Probably next year more so than this year, as by then the little will be feeding it to them. I also have to worry about my horses, some people can play cruel tricks and scare them, so the next couple days, as I did tonight, I will be checking parts of my fence. Also, I worry about my little black kitteh, as some people are superstitious in a bad way and don’t realize how much luck, I mean love they give us. Keep you pets safe and happy and healthy, so you can spoil them at Thanksgiving (just kidding).
PS: Raisins can cause renal failure in dogs so be especially careful with those!
