What a difference a year makes! This time last year, I wouldn’t have believed it if someone had told me we’d be able to celebrate the holiday again without having to be afraid of other people. And while I’m not quite ready to partake in any kind of celebration that involves a crowd, I am so looking forward to gathering with friends this year.
Whatever you choose to do today, please remember that this may not be your cat’s favorite holiday because of the fireworks. Unfortunately, my state allows neighborhood fireworks, and for the past week, they’ve already been going off all around us. Thankfully, Allegra isn’t bothered by them nearly as much as she used to be, but I still wish they wouldn’t be legal. If fireworks are an issue where you live, plan ahead so you can make the holiday as stress free as possible for you cats.
