There are so many things to love about holidays that involve fireworks celebrations, and some humans may even ‘love’ the sound of a good old-fashioned thunderstorm, however, many pets do not.  These events can be quite upsetting to many types of pets, and anyone who has ever worked in ‘animal rescue‘ can tell you that more cats and dogs run away from their homes on holidays involving fireworks; especially an the American Holiday of The 4th Of July, than at any other time of the year.  So, it is very beneficial for you to learn how to best prepare for and calm your pets in preparation for these types of occurrences, whether it is for a holiday involving fireworks or for a potential naturally occuring event such as a thunderstorm.
