Halloween is not just for kids!
Will you be dressing your pet in costume this Halloween? According to a survey by Pet360 Inc., a company that runs “pet parenting” websites, 42 percent of 1,000 pet owners the company surveyed nationwide dress their pets up for Halloween, and 71 percent of pet owners favor funny costumers. Dogs are the animals most commonly dressed for the holiday, but the practice is not limited to Fido. A PetSmart manager reports that she’s seen people dress up their cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, turtles, pigs, and frogs!
If you’re looking to save some money on your pet’s costumes, prices drop just before the holiday, so this is the best week to get a deal.
Pet parents know that dogs and cats can’t have chocolate—and, really, they shouldn’t eat candy of any kind. Instead, check out the ASPCA website for easy-to-make treats for pets for Halloween in case Pooch or Kitty shows up at your door! The site includes recipes for an easy-to-make Halloween cat cookies and peanut butter and pumpkin dog treats. With these easy recipes, any day can be a treat day for your pet!
