Our cat went out earlier and hasn't come back ....

He'll be a bit housebound when for a few days I'll imagine. Silly bugger.

We have 2 dogs which have been de sensitised to noise.Have a word with your vet.Ours are 1 retired Guide Dog,& 1 rejected Guide Dog.
We walked 12 puppies for them & learnt how to do this.
You can get CD's which you play at increasing volume,but a lot of it is your reaction to the noise.Don't fuss them when they are frightened as this helps to reinforce the fear.
Act normally & distract with game/toys.
look up DAP pheremones which give out the scent of mother dogs.

Ive got 2 rescue Greyhounds and a Rough Collie, the big boy Hound is quite upset tonight lying at my feet at the moment shaking thanks for your advice.

You're welcome.The trouble is that it's no longer a 1 day event,then with Haloween & New Year as well it does make sense for all dog owners to de sensitise their dogs.Our first dog,many years ago,would hide in the bath shaking like a jelly.Distressing for all concerned.

Gets worse every bloody year- louder and lasts for what seems an eternity-cats hate them. switched all garden lights on etc. to try to minimise some of the flashes / bangs :brickwall::brickwall::brickwall:

Got a Irish rescue Springer here and she is s**t scared of them and is shaking and quivering under the bed as I type. Bloody fireworks should be banned in peoples back gardens end of.
Other 2 are not bothered but youngest is a bit worried but not overly.

Yes, two feline friends lol. In fact, it's more like they have got us. They know who's the BOSS. I know my place :whistle::whistle:

The cat came in about an hour ago after the worst had passed.

Steel kahunas. Was sauntering about like nothing was going on.

Desensitised cats are good. :thumbsup:
