Dressing up for Halloween can be a yearlong planning event. Kids go trick-or-treating, parents decorate their houses, and candy aisles stock up for the occasion. But… are you forgetting something?

When your pet is part of the family there's endless fun to be had, but you still need to think about safety first. Make sure you take all the precautions necessary so that a fun, spooky evening doesn't turn into a really scary night!
Prevent electric shocks or other injuries by making sure your cat’s costume fits properly. And always, always check that the materials aren't flammable. With jack-o'-lanterns around your house or the neighborhood, accidents may be more likely if you're not careful.
