I understand that the 4th of July is a major holiday for you. It’s the only big summer holiday, and some hold it more sacred than Christmas (but not Thanksgiving – everybody wants to eat). It does make sense to celebrate our Independence and to enjoy the fruits of summer. However, there’s one thing I have a problem with.
Do you have to reinact the Revolutionary War every 4th of July?
You call it “fireworks,” but it sounded more like a war out there! I couldn’t tell whether all of those explosions were from the 1812 Overture on A Capitol Fourth, or the drunk igits around us blowing up massive amounts of money to pollute the environment. And by the way, why do they play a song by a Russian composer during the Capitol Fireworks? Then the neighbors dogs started barking and whining, creating a camphony of insanity out there. Thanks goodness Zack, Chloe and I live inside the home with our humans!
You humans are crazy. Zack and Chloe have adapted to this nonsense, but it was too much for me. I hid in my happy hut. Daddy had to pry me out with my step-up stick yesterday morning. Phooey on fireworks!
I’m ok now. My flock soothed me, and mommy gave us all a good cage cleaning to go with the good housecleaning she did last weekend, so the place is spiffy clean and comfortable. I just wonder how many other anipals had trauma over fireworks, besides our neighbors dogs? I hear it’s a problem with them, and with some humans too. At least, for now, it’s over.
That’s all today. Take care. Have a Happy Friday tomorrow and a wonderful weekend.
