Who said you needed to have fireworks for Halloween? Hmm? I know there is that Bonfire Night thingy coming up… I know ‘cause it gets dark early then they start letting of the whizz-pop-bangs every night… and I guess they are allowed for that. But Halloween? I don’t think so…
It’s bad enough spending Bonfire Night under her chair, and New Year, without starting this malarkey in October… and it’s still going on tonight too!
It’s not that I’m a scaredy-cat or anything. I just don’t like the things. So I
hide wait under her chair till they’ve stopped.
Last year, she was rotten and took a picture. This year she has learned her lesson and draped a big, black blanket over the chair so it is like a tent underneath. That’s much more dignified. And I’m handy in case she needs me… you never know, she might get scared and need to stroke my ears or something, just to reassure her.
So, I’m okay… but I know a lot of dogs who aren’t, this time of year. I can’t speak for cats, they don’t let me get close enough to find out… but I would imagine it must be the same for them. And rabbits and stuff. So in the interests of inter-species relations, I’d like to suggest you follow the advice of the RSPCA (even if she does say that it is Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals… not Ani. I keep telling her otherwise. Especially when she’s stingy with the cheese…).
If there will be fireworks near you, just give the furries a thought.
Me, I’ll be under the chair in my tent if you need me…
Much love, Ani xxx
