Happy early birthday, Switzerland ! On Tuesday, August 1st, we’ll celebrate your 726 years !
Unfortunately for us, humans adore celebrating noisily this kind of event : music and fireworks won’t be lacking.
Cats, firecrackers, and fireworks
We hate as much the noise as the vibrations caused by these things. Some cats appreciate the fireworks show from the cosy inside of their apartment, but they are rare. Most of them (and us with them !) is going to hide under the bed, or in a cupboard, or where they feel safe.
What to do with your cat during the national holiday ?
If your cat goes out, keep him inside to prevent him from running away. Close windows to damp the noise, and lower blinds or close curtains, or better, shutters. Turn on the television or put some music to have a background noise. The ideal is to stay with your cat and to attend calmly to your usual activities. Bach Rescue Pets drops can be useful. We also know that calming treats are available on open sale in some countries, but we didn’t find it in Switzerland.
