We know mommy. And we boff luv ya’ fur it. But we know you can’t do dat fur us any more than our furiends pawents can do it fur them. So me fawt me wuld talk a bit today on how to make this holiday better fur yous furry furmily members. Cuz altho’ most of us kitties get scared of da fire boomers, so do a lot of our doggy furiends. So let me say furst, KNOW yous fur baby. Come on, you know whedder they be fwaid of this nonsense or not. And ifin they awe, don’t force them to go wiff ya’ to see da fireworks show in da pawrk. It’s not fair to them or you; and nopawdy has a good time. So da furst fing you can do fur yous fur babies duwin’ all da celebwations is make them feel safe. Mommy closes da big door and it muffles da sound a bit. Ifin da fire boomers awe goin’ on wight outside, then maybe yous can put yous furry in a bedroom and close dat door. Member ifin yous shut them up in a room to purrvide furesh water so they don’t get dehydwated. Member this is Pet hydwation Awareness Mumff. Altho’ anytime is a bad time fur yous furry to be dehydwated, it sure wuld be a shame ifin it happened this mumff fur sure.

So yous closed yous furry in a room all their own fur their safety, what’s next? Purrvide them wiff sumfin’ they find comfurtin’. You know a favowit bed, or toy, or sumfin’ wiff yous scent on it. A shirt or pillow. Mommys scent is stwongest in da bed sheets so a lot of times dat’s where we hide. Have you ever looked fur yous kitty or doggy only to find them hanginn’ unner da covers of da bed? Weez be surrounded by yous scent and feel safe there. Be sure we have identification on our collars or awe microchipped. You never know, we might get so scared we jump fwu a window. or a BBQ guest might open da door to our sanctuary while lookin’ fur da pawdee box room, and in all da ‘citement, we might run out. Speakin’ of pawdee boxes, don’t furget to leave us one in our safe place. Just cuz weez scared dusn’t mean we stop needin’ to pee.

And all dat cutesy glow in da dawk jewelry…it’s poisonous. Not so much so dat weez gunna die (dependin’ on da amount), but it will make us sick and feel like weez wanna die. You know dat feelin’. Most adults have had it at least once in their lives. And even tho’ we may be beggin’ fur BBQ extwas, don’t give ‘em to us. And absolutely NO alcohol. Lighters and matches, used to ignite yous fire boomers awe also dangerwous fur us. Deadly in fact, so keep ‘em outta our reach. In udder words best you celebwate this holiday on yous own. Hey sumtimes you hoomans need to have sumfin’ dat dusn’t include us. And fur this one day, weez okay wiff dat. Just make sure weez safe, wiff furesh water, food, tweats, toys and a pawdee box or piddle pads. Weez’ll be hidin’ out, but weez safe so you go and have fun, and weez gunna close up and play wiff mommy. Sissy got a purrezzy this week and weez havin’ a blast. Fank you Bugsy, Sparky, Tiger and Blackbeard. Weez’ll be postin’ fotos this weekend. And weez also joinin’ Rascal and Rocco fur da weekly Pet Pawade.
