Halloween decorations are an absolute must for anyone who understands the abstract concept of Halloween as a holiday. Our pets, however, don't actually know what the deal with Halloween is, and so the yearly appearance of strange decorative specters, stuffed scarecrows, and screaming sound effects can cause some dogs and cats to flip out int he most delightful way.


These animals don't even know they're playing with decorations.

Note to self: carefully close the lid on the Halloween decorations before leaving dogs home alone, because they might mistake it for a new toy box.pic.twitter.com/ooGY9WVUg8 twitter.com

At the end of the day, however, there may be no better decoration that the pet itself! Make this Halloween a real spook-fest with the help of your trusty feline or canine!
