Look after your pets during the fireworks season

The fireworks season is about to kick-off. The loud bangs and pretty lights can be fun for us, but with their acute hearing, many pets, of all sizes, find firework noise and flashes frightening.

Here are some helpful tips to make firework celebrations less frightening for your pets.

  • Make sure your dog or cat always has somewhere to hide if he or she wants to and has access to this place at all times. For example this could be under some furniture or in a cupboard.

  • During firework seasons, walk dogs during daylight hours and keep cats and dogs indoors when fireworks are likely to be set off.

  • At nightfall close windows and curtains and put on music to mask and muffle the sound of fireworks.

  • Never punish or fuss over your pet when it's scared as this will only make things worse in the long run.

  • Make sure your cat or dog is always kept in a safe and secure environment and can't escape if there's a sudden noise. Have your pet microchipped in case they do escape. 

  • Never ever take a dog to a fireworks display even if they don't make any noise,  it's still highly likely to be a stressful situation for them.

Don't forget small animals 

  • If your pets live outside, partly cover cages, pens and aviaries with blankets so that one area is well sound-proofed. Make sure that your pet is still able to look out. 

  • Provide lots of extra bedding so your pet has something to burrow in.

Tabby domestic short haired female, 10 years old approx.Molly is a dear little lady who is very affectionate once she feel reassured. She enjoys human company and having a fuss in her pod. She has come a long way since her arrival at the cattery after being a stray for some years. A kind lady had taken her in but was unable to look after her any more. She is now looking for a fresh start with an older family who can give her her another chance at finding love and companionship. She would like to be an only pet so she can lap up all the attention.
Tabby DSH female, 12 years old. Tilly is a beautiful girl who is full of love. She is eager to make friends and is always ready for a fuss. Tilly likes her home comforts and enjoys sleeping in her bed tucked up cosily. She will be a lovely companion and would best suit a quieter home as an only cat, where she can relax and enjoy life. Could you be the special person our gentle soul is waiting for? Please ask a member of staff for details.
Tortie DSH female, 10 years old.Pepsi is a gentle girl who really enjoys your company. She is cheeky, playful and affectionate, rolled into one. She is looking for a loving new family to take her into their hearts. She will be a gorgeous companion, happy to lounge around with you on lazy days, and enjoying entertaining you with her games. She would like a home as the only cat of the household, so she can relax and lap up all the attention.I WOULD LOVE TO COME HOME WITH YOU.
