    ANGELS TOP TIPS Kat Y (Ginge)

🐾 Tip 1: “Bringing Them In, Keeping Them Safe”
To shield your pets from the nerve-wracking noise, Angela suggests bringing them indoors. If you have outdoor pets like rabbits or guinea pigs, consider relocating them temporarily. If this isn’t possible, create a DIY soundproofing system by covering their cages with a thick blanket.

🐾 Tip 2: “Creating a Cosy Haven”
Creating a safe and comfortable area for your pets is vital. Angela recommends providing their bed, favourite toys, and blankets. For an added sense of security, drape a blanket over a table to create a cosy den where your pet can seek solace. And don’t forget to keep some treats nearby to distract them from the noise.

🐾 Tip 3: “A Peaceful Morning Walk”
To avoid startling your furry friend with loud fireworks, take your dog for its daily walk early in the daylight hours before the festivities begin.

🐾 Tip 4: “Masking the Noise”
Angela advises playing background music or turning on the television to create a consistent noise level that can help mask the sound of fireworks outside.

🐾 Tip 5: “Blocking Out the Light”
To minimize the visual impact of flashing lights, close all windows and draw the curtains, ensuring your pets are shielded from the unsettling visual stimuli.

🐾 Tip 6: “Be Their Comforting Companion”
If your pet is anxious, staying by their side can provide immense comfort. Alternatively, consider asking a trusted friend or family member to keep them company if you have to step out.

🐾 Tip 7: “Always Prepared”
Ensure your furry friend has proper identification, such as an ID tag and microchip, to increase the chances of a safe return if they run off out of fear.

🐾 Conclusion
By following these expert tips, you can ensure a serene and stress-free firework night for your beloved pets. Angela’s advice reminds us that a bit of preparation can go a long way in keeping our furry companions happy, safe, and secure during this exciting yet potentially challenging time of year.
