Ever seen a startled ostrich hit a fence at night? Had a lodge set some off at us years back. Dead donkey, many many missing animals.At least they can run away. People and pets cooped up in apartment blocks, can't.
It's at least a compromise.
Nothing perfect in this life.
I had completely forgotten and wondered why they were going off. I actually enjoy the fireworks and went out to watch them when my pooch ran to the door all excitedly. He is a hunting dog and loud bangs don't bother him at all. The cat got a big fright, but calmed right down when he saw the dog was all happy. Having lived all over the world you can see how quickly animals can become desensitized to loud noises if they hear them often enough. In Malaysia the dogs didn't even look up if we set off a few.Loving the fireworks from afar tonight. Happy Diwali to all those celebrating!
