1. Keep your cat indoors: Even if your cat is used to being able to go outside, make sure your kitty is indoors and your windows and doors are shut before the sun goes down.
2. Maintain a safe space for your cat: If your cat has a favorite hiding place, make sure they can access it easily.
3. Distract your cat: Leaving the TV or radio on to provide ambient noise inside the house can help distract your pet from the fireworks outside. You can also use toys and treats to occupy your cat's attention during the firework celebration.
