Halloween Safety Tips for Your Cat
Watch this video from CatChatTV for some good tips on how to make sure your furbaby stays safe this Halloween.
Did You Know That Chocolate Can Kill Your Cat?
Halloween is almost upon us. The decorations are up, everyone is working on costumes, and trick-or-treating is right around the corner. Even if you don’t have kids, Halloween can be a lot of fun.
And there’s chocolate. If you are like me, you love chocolate. In fact, I personally think the real purpose for Halloween is to celebrate the joys of chocolate (Valentine’s Day, too). Maybe this year I’ll dress up as a giant Hershey’s Kiss.
But I digress.
Halloween means we here at Chez Tamstercat have chocolate in the house… you know, strictly because it’s a social obligation. Ahem.
Sadly, as yummy as chocolate is, it can be toxic to our beloved kitties. Our Siamese Gremlin is, shall we say, an aficionado for all foods. That is, he will eat just about anything, including chocolate. So, we have to be extra careful this time of year to make sure he doesn’t get hold of any chocolate.

Here’s what PetMd has to say about it:
Chocolate can become toxic for any cat. So be wary of feeding your cat anything that might contain chocolate and always keep it out of reach…The three types of chocolate that you must be aware of are:
- Milk Chocolate
- Semi-Sweet Chocolate
- Baking Chocolate
