Default Fireworks!! Yay!!!

My Muriel is deaf as a post.

She's spent most of the evening sitting at a window watching the
flashes and showers of sparks whizzing past the window. Wonderful
fun. To a human, or a cat with normal hearing, it sounds like the
first day of the Battle of the Somme.

The others spent the same period hiding in baskets, under chairs,
or (Ollie and Courtney the kittens) snuggled up together in the
drawer that has the bags of dry catfood.

Silly me, I was about to ask what was the occasion for the
fireworks, until I realized you are in the UK, and
remembered Guy Fawkes Day!

One of our cats, I am not sure which, maybe Pish RB, who was not deaf,
used to like watching fireworks through the back window. But all our
other ones have hated it.
