Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!
Every 4th of July, before our family heads out to view the fireworks, we do everything that we can to make the evening as stress-free as possible for Magellan and Tsunami.
We close all of the windows to minimize the noise.
We turn on soothing music to help drown out the sounds.
We make sure they have access to all of their favorite safe spots.
Because we are located so close to the location where the firework display occurs, there is non-stop revelry and extremely loud and scary noises every year at our house on the 4th – noises that are impossible to totally eliminate.
In years past, the firework noise has caused our cats to be on edge for extended periods of time. It usually takes a day or two for things to return to normal in their world.
This year, instead of finding cats hunkered under beds or in mystery locations beyond my reach, imagine my surprise when I found Magellan and Tsunami standing guard outside of my office and bedroom doors!
These were the faces that greeted me as I climbed the stairs – faces that proudly proclaimed that through “the rocket’s red glare” and “the bombs bursting in air” – nothing was getting through those doors as long as they, my faithful sentries, were on duty!
I have never been so proud of my cats!
