Just remember when those fireworks start booming it is best and I mean BEST to keep your pet inside away from all the commotion. I was born and raised in Wisconsin and the fourth of July Fireworks was a disaster for all animal and so was Halloween because there are some people that are just right down mean when it comes to Black Cats and Cats in general. But yes the 4th is loud booms and fireworks, that are just a hazards to ALL ANIMALS. And it doesn’t mean it all happens over there in Wisconsin either. Dogs dash out of the house and walk and run in all directions and Cats they just take cover and bury themselves away from the noise or try to and get more into a jam and can’t find home if they’ve never been outside before.

So just close the windows, lock your doors and put on some soft music and play with your animals no matter who what they are ifs a difficult time for all and when we lose our kids/pets its just devastating to say the least.
