Lights! Color! Action! Fireworks! They began in 7th century China. Although I love them, my cats are not fans. They hide, certain we're under attack. Same goes for thunderstorms. Their chosen "safe room" is deep in the back of the closet under the stairs. We've put cat beds for them in there, and I slip them a few treats to weather the storm (or the fireworks). If you have scaredy cats or pets of any kind, you might take a look at these Fourth of July pet safety tips from the ASPCA. Have a happy, healthy 4th, everyone!
