Default Little Miss watched the fireworks

Hi,

This is my first time posting to this group. I have an 11 month old
kitty, named Little Miss. Even though she is a curious little thing and
sometimes braver than she should be, I was worried about the fireworks
last night.

We live in a neighborhood that lights up on the Fourth with lots of
noise and commotion. I stayed home with her because it was her first
year, and I wanted to be sure she wouldn't panic, as so many cats and
dogs do.

I should not have worried. She sat spellbound in the window, watching
every single fireworks. She didn't come down off the window sill until
every single fireworks had gone off. I don't know which was more
entertaining to watch -- the cat or the fireworks.

Of course, this is the same kitty who loves to ride in the car and
watch every thing, and lets me walk with her on her leash in the park.
I should not have been surprised.

Curious little thing. How did all the other pets do?

Welcome Little Missy's Mom! We can't wait to hear more stories about Little
Missy!

My clowder were fine - they completely ignore all commotion from outside
(unless it's another cat invading their territory - even though they don't
go outside, they "guard" the perimeter of their home!).

I think cats tend to pick up feelings and emotions from the people they live
with and my attitude about the noise of fireworks is mild irritation (and
last night watchful alertness since we're experiencing a drought here in
Houston and I was worried about all the dry pine needles on the roof
catching fire). So for them, it was just business as usual - they didn't
twitch a whisker!

Hugs,

CatNipped

Hi Missy's Mom! Welcome to the group!

Brave little girl you have there! My Persia hid in the closet first from a
barrage of fireworks and then from severe thunderstorms which followed right
behind. Any loud noise startles her.

Our "bitties" (we got them as 3 week old orphans) are now fully grown,
but still completely oblivious to Stuff Outside.

Our Nocturne will not demean herself by responding to foolish noise.

Smokey, our Feral, is the only one who cares. He spends Canada Day
under the desk.

Scouty and Silver are incredibly afraid of people, but loud noises
don't scare them at all (unless it's somebody knocking on the door).
John and I went outside to watch the fireworks and I came back in to
check on them a few times but they weren't bothered in the least...
later in the night some kids had fireworks out in the street behind
the apartment, and Scouty was watching them with interest from the
windowsill. Thunderstorms don't scare them either - they sit on the
windowsill and watch the rain!
