Kindness Journey – Day 51 – Fireworks

Personally, I’ve never quite understood the fascination with fireworks on the 4th of July. Honestly, the noise starts with individuals days before the 4th itself, and these are the most disruptive noises of all.

Kindness should extend to our pets and animal friends. I doubt that the people shooting off fireworks ever stop to think how the noise frightens and disorientates animals, who often have much more sensitive hearing than we do.

I’ve watched dogs cower in fear while fireworks are going off. They are genuinely terrified. Cats also get upset, but they don’t respond as viscerally as dogs. Cats tense up and will sometimes shake from fear. Cats become extremely agitated and will react if touched because all of their senses are in heightened alert.

Please show sone Kindness to our animal friends and keep them away from fireworks.
