What is it with two-legses and things that go bang in the night, hmm? Ask any sensible creature… and they are easy to find, as we almost all have four legs each… and we will tell you that loud noises, sudden flashes and, well, pretty much anything you two-legses do with that gunpowder stuff in general… It’s not great, you know.
Mine is as bad as the rest. She needn’t think I can’t see her peeping out of the window when the bangs start. She says she likes the smell and the lights… makes her feel like a puppy again. She seems to like that and that’s all well and good for her, but they make me feel like a puppy again too… all scared and shaky.
To be fair, she’s pretty good. She doesn’t go off and leave me. She makes sure the curtains are closed, usually puts something on one of the boxes that make a noise and always snuggles up with me till the bangs stop.
This time, she’s been doing a lot of snuggling. She says it is all the fizzy-o she has had lately. Now, if I had stuff that made me ache and groan like this fizzy-o stuff of hers, I wouldn’t eat it myself.
I told her so, but she just laughed and said she didn’t have to eat it and it is s’posed to make her feel better. Can’t see any signs of that… Me, I’d give it a wide berth if it is that bad…
Anyway, I just wanted to remind everyone to make sure that your furries, four-legses and featheredy friends are safe while the bangs and flashes are going off… it seems to be the season for it. I know lots of you enjoy it… but lots of us don’t.
I may just go and test out the den she’s making me under the desk…
