Remember to keep pets safe on Bonfire Night
AS SOMEONE with both Republican and Catholic sympathies, I cannot partake in the Bonfire Night tradition.
However, I have no objection to others celebrating November 5 if they don’t cause distress to dogs and cats. As a dog’s hearing is twice as sensitive as a person’s and a cat’s three times, any loud sudden bangs can be very frightening for pets.
Our canine and feline companions must be kept indoors at all times when fireworks are being lit, preferably with all windows and doors closed and the TV turned on to lessen the amount of noise outside.
