Halloween can be a dangerous time of the year for cats. Unfortunately, some people view cats as evil. Halloween, the time for ghouls and goblins, often triggers serious and sometimes fatal abuse of cats caught outside. This is especially true for black and red tabby cats. Humane societies and cat rescue organizations will usually close cat adoptions during Halloween because of the potential abuse threat. Our best recommendation is to keep all cats indoor at least for the last 2 weeks of October.
Candy, gum, raisins also pose a risk for cats and dogs who ingest Halloween candy and treats. Illness and fatalities are possible; so put the Halloween treats in a drawer or someplace safe from your pets.
