The bombs bursting in air night after this year has gotten to my cats (and me).
I think I like the fireworks better when the 4th falls on a Friday or Saturday so they don’t go off for 4 or 5 nights in a row. My cats are scared of our cell phones and the ice maker, but fireworks on the other hand, haven’t been bothered them until now.
I’m guessing if I looked around our yard I’d find remnants of them in our yard from neighbors who don’t think the show the city puts on is big enough and buys illegal fireworks (for our area). Nothing like a neighbor a stones throw away pointing lit rockets away from their own home, that when set off in the neighborhood actually shook the painting on our walls with the bang.
I’m not sure what the percent of pet owners is but I’m guessing theirs at least some amount of pet owners who have pets scared of fireworks that set them off regardless.
So glad fireworks are not set off for every birthday.
and a big thank you to all those who fought for our freedom.
