Loud, random noises during firework season can be especially scary to your cat. Here are our top tips for helping them throughout the season:

Get your kitty used to the noise

You can get firework noises on CD, which can help your pet become acclimatised to the sound of fireworks. Putting on a CD before the noises start can help mask any unexpected bangs on November 5th. You can also find popular firework displays on YouTube (such as New Year celebrations) which can be used to help household pets get used to the noise and celebrations.

Thursday 10th October is #WorldMentalHealthDay, so we are talking about how our furry friends play an important part in looking after our minds.

Our case study comes from James who lives in Watford, he explains how his former pets got him through difficult years as a teenager and young adult.

“When I was 10 years old I got obsessed with getting a dog, as lots of kids do! We found a cocker spaniel puppy who connected with us straight away, I remember him coming to say hello for the first time and I was in love instantly".

Aged seven years old, Jazzy is a very handsome ginger tomcat who arrived at the Hertfordshire centre in July this year, his former owners were sadly unable to look after him anymore.

After being closely monitored, our staff noticed that he was losing weight far too quickly. The vet carried out a blood test, which revealed that poor Jazzy has hyperthyroidism.

Poor Dot arrived at the NAWT Clacton centre in September due to her previous owners’ ill health, which sadly meant that they could no longer look after her.

Following a check-up at the vets, it was revealed that unfortunately she has failing kidneys. So a special diet is needed to help her kidneys do their job properly. Apart from that, lots of love and attention is what she craves the most.
