Ensure Harmless Tricks and Give the Treat of Safety to Your Cat this Halloween

Happy Halloween to all,
Greetings ghosts, goblins, and cat creatures! We hope everyone is getting excited for the upcoming holiday. We here at World’s Best Cat Litter™ are anxiously waiting for our two favorite days of Catober: National Cat Day and, of course every Frankencat’s favorite, Halloween.

That’s right, October 29 is National Cat Day! For those of you unfamiliar with the commemoration, here is some background from www.nationalcatday.com:

National Cat Day was founded by Pet Lifestyle Expert & Animal Behaviorist, Colleen Paige to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.

Estimates reveal that there are approximately 4 million cats entering shelters every year with 1-2 million being euthanized. Often cats are overlooked and under-appreciated because they don’t usually have jobs like dogs. But cats still lower blood pressure, offer unconditional love and companionship and alert their owner of danger.

Cats have so many puuuurrrrsonalities and there is so much to love about them! Even if you can’t adopt a cat, offer to volunteer to clean a cage or sit and play with a cat for a while. Who knows? You may just fall in love!

Please visit your local shelter on October 29th, offering love and life by adopting a homeless cat. The goal of National Cat Day is to facilitate the adoption of 10,000 shelter cats nationwide on October 29th.

It’s no accident that National Cat Day falls just a few days before Halloween. As you well know, each Halloween, there are a certain few that choose to harm others. Sadly, the most common victims are cats. Black cats are especially susceptible to danger due to superstitions and legends that hold black cats as bad luck. To ensure your cat gets nothing but treats this Trick or Treats, we offer these tips:

  • Keep your cat indoors as much as possible during the few days leading up to Halloween,as well as during the actual Halloween festivities.
  • Keep a close eye on your cat while greeting trick-or-treaters and guests to make sure your cat doesn’t escape out the door.
  • If your cat is outside, try to keep an eye on it as visitors enter and leave your house or apartment.
  • Make sure all treats, candies and foil wrappers aren’t accessible to your cat. We recommend keeping them in a place they can’t reach or in a sealed container.

Well, that’s it for meow! We wish everyone the best of luck during both of these great holidays! Please feel free to tell us anything special, fun or exciting you are doing with your cat or pet as part of the festivities!

Boo!
