Pets And Fireworks.
With a new addition to our household, we now have five cats and two dogs. None of them like the fireworks.
When our children were growing up, we always took them to a huge bonfire and fireworks display, where there were hundreds of people. It never really bothered me, but my Husband Paul loved it and as only I drove, I had to go, but once I was there, I always got into the spirit of things. The children loved going.
I didn’t ever go trick or treating as a child, nor did we ever do, “Penny for the guy.” The only fireworks we had was a few sparklers.
Around this time of year, its usually cold and damp, I’d rather be in the house in the warm. But thankfully now our children are grown up and I don’t need to wrap up, with water proof boots, freezing and in a cold muddy field.
I remember one year we all came back home from a bonfire and fireworks display, it had been a fantastic evening, the television was on loud and the radio too, yet the dog still got out from where he was put and run amok, the place was a mess, the evening ruined. it caused Paul and myself to have an argument, it wasn’t the dog’s fault, but the fireworks and bangers!
Lots of people are calling for the sale of fireworks to be banned and for fireworks to be held at proper displays, I for one would sign such a petition.
Yesterday on Facebook, someone posted a picture of a dead black cat, and said, “It just died in front of me, no doubt due to the fireworks,” That poor cat, must have bee SO frightened and the owners who won’t know where their cat is, we were asked to share it, so the owners would see their cat, but I didn’t have the heart to.
