Many in the valley will be marking tonight with fun spookiness, but for some family members, the holiday is anything but fun. A consortium of veterinarians nationally is urging pet-owners to be conscious of the effects on their four-legged friends. Things pets will find upsetting include the continual doorbell ringing, strangers in costume, candle flames and jack-o-lanterns. They suggest finding a place for your pet where they can stay through the evening and feel safe and secure. The vets also urge pet-owners to keep their pets inside – especially black cats – since unfortunately they become the targets of pranksters.
