Well we wanna pawlogize fur makin’ sum of yous sad yesfurday. Unfurtunately da stowry we made up happens far to offen. And will continue to happen till da day society as a whole stawrts to value life, all life and learns dat pets not be fwo aways. Anyways we wanna talk a little today ‘bout halloween. We don’t celebwate this purrticular holiday but a lot of peeps do, and as wiff any holiday it comes wiff fun and dangers fur yous furry furmily member.
Lots of ya’ like to dwess up yous pets in da latest costumes fur foto shoots and competitions. There’s nuffin’ wrong wiff dat ifin yous pet likes dat sort of fing and is comfurtable. Da doggies weally luv this one but most cats not so much. Altho’ sum of us kitties do like getting’ dwessed up, me be one of them. So go ahead and give it a twy. Ifin yous furry stwuggles too much, then STOP. Yous addin’ undue stwess and da fotos won’t look good anyways.
Then there’s da pawrties. Lots of fun fur you but not so much fur yous furry. Lots of peeps and loud noises. Food and dwink and minglin’. Fur da “pawrty animals” Candy Is Not a food gwoup yous furry pal shuld be eatin’. Chocolate be bad fur all pets, but so awe all da udder sugary sweet substances. As well as most of da spices and ingwedients in human food. And booze…when was da last time you saw da Lion King havin’ a beer or margarita? Use sum common sense ifin nuffin’ else. And ifin yous furry wuldn’t eat it or dwink it in da wild, they purrobably shuldn’t be havin’ it at a pawrty.
Now fur all da “wallflowers,” those animals who don’t like da pawrties; like us kitties. Purrvide us a safe haven away fwum all da hustle and bustle of da festivities. Put us in a room of our own wiff a closed door. Turn on sum soft music or da teevee to help drown out da pawrty goers. Don’t furget to give us sum food and water and a few toys. Maybe a bed; whatever makes us feel comfurtable and secure. Put a note on da closed door to alert yous guests dat we be in there and shuldn’t be disturbed. Remind yous guests regardless of whether yous pet be da center of attention or unseen and unheard, dat they shuldn’t be feedin’ us.
Then there’s those pesky twick or tweaters. Make sure yous furry can’t escape everytime da door opens. It wuld be bestest to put us in our safe place fur all concerned, even yous furiendly, luv everypawdy doggy. Da ‘citement of da night can make any well twained furry furget their manners. And yous not wanna be sued cuz yous furry jumped on, bit or scwatched a twick or tweater.
And ifin yous got little ones dat you be takin’ out, use yous good judgement. Ifin da house don’t look furiendly, don’t send yous kids to da door. Check all da loot they bwing home to make sure nuffin’ has been tampurred wiff. Make sure yous kids don’t enter anypawdy’s house dat yous not know weally well, an it’s still bestest ifin yous accompany them. Fwo out all handmade tweats lessen yous purrsonally know where they came fwum. Better safe than sowry. Da world we live in isn’t always very nice. And purrlease keep yous solid black and solid white furry furiends inside. People awe cwuel at this time of year and those colors awe sought out by unscwupulous peeps. Yous’ll be able to relax an have more fun when yous not worryin’ ‘bout yous furry furmily.
