I hope all of our American friends had a great Fourth of July. I know it can be a difficult day for people with pets, but our pets are not normal.
I vacuumed the house in the morning while Chris and Frankie were napping in the Florida room. They weren’t bothered by the noise in the slightest.
Later that evening is when the fireworks started. Judging by the sound, a very close neighbor spent a fortune on fireworks. I think it peaked around 9:30 when there was a continuous stream of loud bangs over our house but all of our cats were napping on our bed like nothing was going on.
How did your pets handle the Fourth of July?
Lucky you! We had a similar neighbor to yours who obviously is a bazillionaire and spent his fortune in illegal fireworks. Noisy all evening and Ted was not a happy boy. Neither were we actually because it was impossible to sleep until well after midnight! Thankfully July 4th is FINISHED!
That’s too bad. At least our neighbor was done by 10.
lol. One of our cats runs from the room before I’ve even plugged the vacuum cleaner in, but the other two don’t seem to mind the noise. However whenever there’s a storm brewing, or fireworks, they all go into hiding.
Our Floki does not like the vacuum cleaner but he didn’t seem to mind the noise from the fireworks.
That’s usually how it plays out around here, too. Sweet dreams, kitties…
Love and licks,
Way to go! This was the first year that none of us inside kitties were bothered by all the bang noises.
Well, that is good to hear.
Someone very close by had fireworks going until about 9:30, but my cats were on the bed, oblivious to it all. I was nervous about the outdoor cats, but they stopped by for breakfast this morning. Guess they found a place to hide while all the mayhem was going on last night.
That’s good. I didn’t think about the outside cats. I guess they have been a lot worse on the 4th of July.
It was really bad here this year with the fireworks! My human kept me distracted so I didn’t care all that much. Boodie is deaf, so she slept through it all.
I guess that is a silver lining for Boodie.
Check those cats’ hearing! MOL! We had a lot of fireworks and firecrackers going off all last night but they weren’t that close to us so it wasn’t real loud and we weren’t bothered too much.
That’s good to hear.
Such a sweet group. My 10 were fine, they can’t hear the fireworks with the a/and tv on.
That’s a good strategy. 🙂
We only have fireworks on Christmas, New Year and Sinulog. All my cats go on high alert and hide under the bed if left on their own. I have to play music for anxious cats and stay in the room with them so they come out.
That is very nice of you to do that for them. Where do you live?
Thanks! I live in one of the 7,000+ islands in the Philippines. 😄
Nice. My ex wife was from Manilla.
Oh wow, what a small world. 😃
