Just a reminder to all pet owners: Fireworks can scare even a normally calm dog or cat. Every year people lose their beloved pets due to fireworks. The loud noise can be terrifying to animals and they can run off – they can dash out a door, slip off their leash, jump a fence, etc. – things they might never have done before. You should keep your pet contained in a safe spot – maybe in their crate or small room with no windows if you are going to be gone that night.
