In my house, Halloween is an absolute circus. We are passing out candy, looking for the face paint, getting the kids into their costumes and trying to get them to eat something relatively healthy. In the midst of all this fun chaos, who gets neglected? Our dog.
Halloween may not phase some pets, but for most dogs and cats, it’s a distressing change in routine. An ordinarily quiet house suddenly becomes filled with strange noises, constant door knocking and people in costume. You don’t want to overlook your pet during this time, so make sure his Halloween isn’t scary by following some of these tips.

Your dog is more than just a family pet – he’s a member of your family, your children’s best friend and protector. As such, you want him to lead a long, healthy and happy life. You want these same things for your children and to ensure that they stay strong and healthy, you make their nutrition a priority. But are you doing the same for your dog or are you pouring a generic kibble into his bowl every day that’s chalk full of unnatural fillers?

Fortunately, cats are easy to litter box train. Unfortunately, cats can’t clean the litter box. If you are a cat owner or are considering a cat, then you will get very familiar with kitty litter. There are different types, and some litters work better for some families while other kitty litters work better for others.
My family adopted a rescue kitty. Sugar may have been down on his luck, but he had his pride. One thing he could not tolerate was a dirty litter box. He would go in the litter box regardless, but he would not step in it if it did not meet his standards. He would balance on the edges of the box with his claws and give us the evil eye. So, he quickly trained us to keep the litter box very clean.

Parakeets are popular small birds and make great pets. If you decide to adopt a parakeet into the family, you’ll need to get him an appropriate cage. Here are some tips for buying.
While you may see birdcages at secondhand stores or at yard sales, it’s not a good idea to get an old cage for a parakeet. Many of the older cages have lead based paint, and birds peck and nibble, so they ingest harmful chemicals when housed in older cages. In addition, the previous bird may have had an illness and putting your bird in the old cage could cause your parakeet to get sick or even die.

Parakeets or budgies are lively little birds. Like children, parakeets enjoy playing with toys. Be sure that your little bird has a supply of fun toys that are budgie appropriate.
Your parakeet is likely to spend a good deal of time in her cage especially if family members work outside the home or go off to school during the day. This means that your little bird will need toys to pass the time while you’re away or busy with other household tasks.
