More fireworks:-(

Over the weekend we heard more and more fireworks going off, even though officially Guy Fawkes night isn’t until the 5th November.

In the past I wasn’t too bothered by fireworks, but I’ve been much more agitated this year, very fidgety and unsettled. Mummy and daddy were a bit worried as last night was our local firework display which is held in our park. We can hear it very clearly from our house and it’s usually really loud.  So mummy bought me a nice bone to distract me. It was a good plan and worked a treat.

what fireworks??

The fireworks were like cannons but I happily chewed on my bone and ignored them.

Fireworks are really scary for us furries and it’s important for us to feel safe. Here’s a link to some good tips:

Stay safe this fireworks night everyone.

  1. We don’t like the boom booms either Misaki. Glad when they are over. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Whee aren’t big fans of fireworks either. But our new hutch is further away from where the displays are so whee can hardly hear them this year! Hope you get through it ok.

    Have a lovely Monday

    Toby’s with you on this one, those cannon blasts are horrible. I don’t remember them ever being that loud when I was younger! and I completely understand him wanting to hide from them, he’s back behind the sofa again so he’s near me but hidden from the window….I can’t recline while he’s back there but I’ll accept that if it means he’s not as scared! you look like you really enjoyed that bone 😛 xx

  4. Oh I don’t like all that noise either Misaki…..maybe some earmuffs???????

    Hugs, Sammy

    Bailie and I don’t mind fireworks, but around 5-6 yrs old, Katie developed a fear, then when she was about 11, that stopped and it no longer bothers her. Maybe you are in a phase and hopefully it won’t be a long one.

  7. I’m glad the distraction bone worked for you Misaki 🙂

    Oh yes, distraction works sometimes if you aren’t too scared to begin with. I’m happy that you got through the fireworks in good shape.

    Glad that you had the super Chew thing to DISTRACT your attention from the Banging and Booming Fireworks.

    DON’T FURGET to VOTE fur Blogville Mayor TOMORROW… at Sarge’s Place… We will have LINK up to help everybuddy get there easily… VOTE VOTE VOTE…

  10. I’m glad your momma thought of you and had a PLAN. Momma always stays with us on the Fourth of July so we don’t get too skeered by fireworks. Our STUPID neighbors like to fire them off all night.

  11. Kyla says:

    Those humans can think of the slightest excuse to bother us.

  12. Sorry about the fireworks, hopefully it’s over soon!

    We are all right there with you my friend. We hate the sound of loud noises like fireworks. Anytime that happens, the king size bed gets a little crowded… you know with mom/dad, me, 2 purr things and now the little guy Houdini. XOXO – Bacon

  14. Hope that the ones to come don’t bother you. Your mommy did the right thing, soothing you with a bone. wag wag

  15. Will and Eko says:

    Nice play on getting the bone – it may even start a positive association!

    So sorry Misaki, fireworks are too scary. Bones always help.

  18. Lady wishes a bone would distract Lee!

  19. What a smart mum you have. I’d be looking for another big bone on Nov 5!

    BTW, Honey doesn’t mind fireworks. But sometimes she gets a little bothered by a bad thunderstorm. I’ve found that what works best when she’s agitated is to practice some of her favorite tricks. She gets so excited about closing the door with her nose that she forgets to be scared of the storm.

  20. That is what our Mom does for the Girls. Bones and loud TV! Glad you didn’t get upset Misaki! Mom wishes that all but commercial fireworks would be banned. They are getting really bad where we live and people start way before July 4th and do them for over a week after 😦

  21. Jane Y. says:

    aww that was so sweet and smart of your mama to get you something to chew on!

  22. The OP Pack says:

    We had fireworks in our neighborhood on Halloween night -maybe left over from the Big 4th. Ciara was not very happy at all!!! She wishes she had a bone like you:)

    Woos – Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  23. Laika says:

    That bone was a good plan. Vaks is very scared with all loud noises, even a sneeze from mom or dad LOL.

  24. pawedblog says:

    Aww Misaki! It’s so annoying that they can’t keep it to the time they are supposed to! Your mummy has some great diversionary tactics though… don’t worry!
    Hugs, Carrie & Pups x

  25. I am glad your peeps employed “distract therapy”. It is hard to worry when you have a nice bone to chew on. ❤

  26. Been a nightmare few nights here and tonight we have to calm the three moggies again xxx Not long and it will be over for the fur balls x

  27. Boo to naughty fireworks!
