Hello, friends! Are you ready for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge? We are, and we'd love for you to join us. My amazing co-host Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two fill-in statements, and I came up with the second two.
1. Every October, I _________.
(It always feels like summer trudges along at a snail's pace as I wait for my favorite months of the year, October being at the top of that list. Then, once October does roll around, it feels like it passes by in a flash. That pretty much goes for the entire last quarter of the year, actually.)
(Cliché? Yes? Well, that won't change my answer. I don't do parties, but when I hand out candy on Halloween, I dress up in a giant black cat onesie I have, complete with ears, whiskers, and a tail. You can't go wrong with a cat.)
(Zombie apocalypse, you say? I'll just stay in my house with my furbabies, thank you very much. That's what I prefer doing on any given day anyway. Obviously there would be a lot more to it than that, but my family and I often joke that a zombie apocalypse might be what it takes to really enjoy some true isolation away from society. That is, until the walking dead show up at your door looking for their next meal.)
There are of course a number of options for keeping a cat or dog from escaping out a busy door on Halloween. First, you can set up a safe room for your cat or dog and keep them in there during the Halloween festivities, so that they have no ability to escape from the house when people show up at the front door. Depending on how your house is set up and how determined your kitty or pup is to reach the door, you can also put up baby gates or pet gates to keep a cat or dog in an area of the house away from the door. If your furbaby is leash trained, and as long as the leash is securely held, your kitty or pup can also be kept safe in the house by attaching them to their leash, with of course someone or something holding said leash. You best know your furbaby as well as the setup of your home, so use whatever method is the safest, most surefire way of keeping your kitty or pup from escaping out a busy door on nights like Halloween.
