How to keep pets safe and happy dur­ing fire works

Many an­i­mals find fire­works scary. It’s es­ti­mated that 45 per­cent of dogs in the UK show signs of fear when they hear fire­works.

It doesn’t have to be that way though, so don’t ig­nore the prob­lem. There are lots of sim­ple things you can do to help your pet deal with fire­works. By pre­par­ing in ad­vance be­fore fire­works start your pet will be bet­ter able to cope with the noises.

Walk/let them out dur­ing day­light hours to avoid times when fire­works are likely to be set off

Keep pets in­doors overnight where pos­si­ble

Close win­dows and cur­tains to muf­fle the sound of fire­works

Put on some mu­sic or tv to mask the fire­work sounds

Cre­ate some hid­ing places for your pet Look­ing for lov­ing homes

The per­fect pair - Byjoux (white/ black male one year old)and Saffi (fe­male two and a half years-old) are now ready and wait­ing for their for­ever home af­ter be­ing signed over for re­hom­ing through no fault of their own.

Al­though a lit­tle ner­vous, these two are an af­fec­tion­ate pair and are look­ing for a quiet and un­der­stand­ing home.

Byjoux, the white and black male is the more con­fi­dent of the two and al­ways comes over for a fuss first, but Saffie the tor­tie and white fe­male gen­er­ally isn’t too far be­hind. Their ideal home would be with­out any other an­i­mals or young chil­dren. Could you offer this lovely pair the pur­r­fect home?

Joey (male black two years-old ) and Suzie (tor­tie fe­male three years - old) are look­ing for a home where they can come out of their shells and burn off the en­ergy they have in the evenings.

Al­though still a lit­tle ner­vous, this pair have come a long way and are do­ing re­ally well, and with time and pa­tience they will be great com­pany. These cats are look­ing for a quiet home and time to set­tle, with­out any other pets or young chil­dren. Can you offer this pair their for­ever home?

Pas­sion and Tito Ter­rier who fea­tured our last col­umn have now found lov­ing for­ever homes through your help and the help of the lo­cal com­mu­nity and we wish them all the hap­pi­ness.

Joey and Suzie and Byjoux and Saffi, be­low
