cat to wear a costume as it can cause a great deal of undue stress. Instead of dressing your cat in a costume, consider celebrating with a cat-themed craft project, like making a Halloween cat toy for your beloved kitty or decorating a pumpkin to look like a cat!
- If you choose to dress your cat in a costume, be sure that it fits appropriately and does not interfere with their senses – sight, sound, smell, or taste. Avoid covering the cat’s ears, eyes, nose or mouth. And be sure that the costume is safe and your pet can move freely.
- Keep candy and especially chocolate away from your cat (and dog). Chocolate is lethal to pets. Most of the other traditional Halloween decorations, like pumpkins and corn, are generally not toxic to cats, but ingesting them can cause some gastrointestinal distress.
- If you are planning on lighting up your pumpkins, choose flameless candles
to do so. Cats are curious by nature and a jack-o-lantern with a flame can lead to disaster.
