HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! but Please Respect Pets and People too!



Cats and other sensitive beings may be terrified of the sound of fireworks.

Tip: Let your cat find the place in the house where they feel most comfortable, possibly under a bed or in a closet. Allow them to stay there until the noise is over. Though you want to comfort them, it’s best to leave them alone. They know what they need.

Tip: Ask your vet what calming aids they would reccommend to help your cat.

This is how I feel when those boomies go off. If I feel this way, imagine how your pet with their sentsitive ears must feel!

More cats (and dogs) go missing on the Fourth of July holiday than any other time of the year. Keep kitty inside, and make sure windows and doors are closed so there is no way for your cat to sneak out. 

Not all cats are sensitive to noises. Our Dirty Harry would sleep through all of it, and our Tinkerbelle liked to sit in the window and watch!

Have a wonderful holiday. Stay safe. Social distance. Wear masks. Be kind.

    We always feel so bad for our ferals. Our fireworks will go off night after night across the street at the lake, it’s pretty loud. Happy Independence Day from all of us!

      Thank you. We had a reasonably quiet night. Blaze was sacred and stayed on the stairs at the very center of the house. Ginchan and Tyler didn’t seem to notice much.

    We do not mind either, but we are safe inside with our loving Humanmom, who takes realy good care of us.
