When the moon rides high,
Through the dark we fly,
Starry shadows chasing the light.
Black cat eyes shine green,
Watching closely the scene,
As our spell-casting lights up the night.

As we approach my favourite time of year, filled with celebrations, parties and magical goings-on - please remember to keep a special eye out on your favourite furry friends this weekend. While all the spooky noises, screaming fun and mischief of Halloween might be great for us, unusual and unpredictable sound and behaviour from people can be very frightening for our pets. It's advisable to keep cats in overnight this Friday/Saturday where possible and make sure your dogs and other pets have all their comforting blankets, toys etc. around them and a human carer there to watch over them. If you plan to be out over this weekend and for Bonfire Night on 5th November, contact us if you want someone to check on or sit with your pet.
So remember to keep safe and look out for your pets during the festivities, we may like to be thrilled and frightened for fun but our pets do not!
Alfie, Hudson and Gorgeous George pictured below have all been looked after by Mel's Pet Services in the last week and can confirm that love, cuddles and the odd treat are all the magic they need :-)
