Today I taught an online class on the Fall Holiday Cycle, aka the High Holy Days. I did a demonstration of shofar blowing and gathered a crowd here in the house. The dogs are fascinated by the shofar but a bit shy of its sound.
If you have ritual objects in your home, keep in mind that shofarot smell like fabulous chew toys, as do scrolls and the klaf in your mezuzah. Keep the shofar, etc. out of reach of pets.

Have you ever heard of or experienced cats trying to climb up the doorpost to get to the mezuzah on entry doors before?
I haven’t, but as a one-time cat owner, nothing would surprise me.
