Halloween is a very exciting time for us as humans, but for our cats, the entire season can be a little overwhelming or even completely frightening. For at least one evening during the month, the streets become filled with people in all manner of costumes, from the tame to the completely horrifying. Unusual lights, loud noises, shrieks and screams all contribute towards making it a confusing and fearful experience for even the most chilled out cat.
Cats are highly independent creatures that often appear aloof and not too fussed about human contact at all. If a situation arises where you need to place your cat into a boarding facility for a short amount of time, you will probably be far more anxious about the prospect than your feline will. This is totally normal, particularly if you have never left your kitty in the care of someone else before.

Therefore, the close quarters of a grooming parlor provide an ideal ground for contagious conditions to spread.
