Mean to Leave Pets in Dark?

We'll Leave the Light on For You?

If leaving home and not planning to return before nightfall, do you turn any lights on for your furry friends or encourage them to just play in the dark? It's not the most energy conscious choice to make but it could help them rest easier in your absence.

If we leave at night. We USED to leave a TV on for them. Then the electric bill doubled! LOL...We learned that lesson. My Cav is so bummed out that we're gone that I think she just sleeps. She wouldn't care if the TV were on or not. I know she doesn't get out of the recliner, bc I've watched in the window.
