Every year so many animals get scared when fireworks are let off and often there is a large influx of cats that escape or find themselves lost having been scared by fireworks. 
So our top tips:
·   Make sure your cat is microchipped and your contact details on the chip are up-to-date.
  •  ·  Keep them in after dark
  • ·   Try to avoid leaving your cat on its own – whilst they may not want you fussing around them they will feel safer if you are at home.
  • ·   If you have to leave the house leave a radio or tv playing to drown out the display
  • ·   Keep all windows, curtains, doors and cat flaps closed/locked.
  • ·   Feed your cat before the fireworks start, a full belly may help them feel clam and tired
  • ·   Think about investing in Feliway (releases calming pheromones into the air which help comfort your cat)

Whilst trying not to be a bunch of party poopers; this is the law on fireworks:
  • ·   You must not throw fireworks (including sparklers) in the street or other public places
  • ·   Fireworks cannot be set off after 11pm and 7am.  Only exception is Bonfire Night itself when the cut off is midnight or New Year Events.
  • ·   Fireworks are on sale from 15 October to 10 November, 26 to 31 December and 3 days before Diwali and Chinese New Year
