Today we talk about the cat who is afraid of fireworks, unfortunately a very common condition among our four-legged friends.
Pet owners, dogs or cats that they are, they generally have a deep hatred for a particular day of the year: the last of the year.
A day when, unfortunately, fireworks are the order of the day in many cities. Obviously, however, there is not only the last of the year.
The fireworks are exploded for many occasions, whether it is the patron saint of the city, rather than mid-August or the village festival. And, unfortunately, it is always the felines that pay the consequences.
In fact, there are many cats that have this phobia. A phobia that can have many consequences, even death.
Obviously, in general, the cats most at risk of death from this fear are those who live on the street and not our domestic four-legged friends.
THE strays, in fact, frightened by the bangs caused by the firefighters, they could run without thinking, ending up under a car, for example.
But why is the cat afraid of fireworks? This phobia essentially arises from physical conformation felines.
Cats hear 4.5 times better than us. Imagine what noise could come in the ear of a feline following a firework? It can annoy us humans, let alone cats.
But what can we do to reassure them during the fireworks? As mentioned, the first thing to do is to make sure that our four-legged friend is at home during the explosion of the barrels.
If your feline usually goes out, absolutely avoid sending him out when the time for fireworks approaches.
We try to close all the doors and windows of our house. Both to prevent him from running away and to make him hear less noise.
Let's not force him to stay anywhere. He will know where best to go for shelter if scared.
We also try not to leave him alone, even if we don't have to force him to be with us. Let's make him understand that we are there, close to him. If he wants, he will come alone. But, speaking of phobias. Do you know what to do if the cat is afraid of the storm?
Moving home can be really traumatic for us, let alone for the cat. in conclusion cat and moving house it's not exactly an idyllic marriage and such a change can be quite problematic for our beloved feline. Cats are animals of habit and this is a basic principle that must always accompany us, every time we make a choice and life at home is upset by a new event.
The cat is afraid of an object ? It would be more correct to say that our four-legged friend is afraid of multiple objects, moreover without an apparent reason that can allow us to understand the actual reason for this emotion so instinctive and at the same time inexplicable, at least for what ours can be.
The older cat may be afraid of the puppy because, not only is it an animal of habit, but it is also an animal that has lived most of its life, with ailments and with the desire for tranquility. A condition that often clashes with the exuberance of a small and curious four-legged friend of the world around him.
When deciding to get a cat, it is important to understand that cats, like people, can assume different attitudes based on age. If yours old cat is always afraid it is necessary to understand what are the causes that trigger this problem. Resolving the problem is essential, especially if yours has never been a frightened cat.
They are beautiful, artistic and promptly manage to give parties that extra touch that makes them unforgettable. However, for our four-legged friends this is not the case at all. In fact, they represent a real threat for various reasons but, regardless of this, how do you do it calm the cat during the fireworks ?
