How to help cats during firework season?

  1. If your cat hides on top of cupboards or under furniture, leave him alone and do not try to coax him out. This ‚Äėbolthole‚Äô is where he will feel most secure. It is important that your pet can access his favourite bolthole at all times
  2. On the evenings you expect fireworks, ensure your cat is safely inside and secure doors, windows and cat flaps.
  3. Plugging a Feliway pheromone diffuser in the room, where the cat spends most of his time 48 hours before the festivities will increase his sense of security.
  4. Make sure your cat is microchipped. If your cat does escape, frightened and confused animals can easily get lost
  5. Ensure your cat is provided with a litter tray both before and during the firework season. Your cat cannot be expected to go outside to toilet
  6. Draw curtains to reduce the noise from outside and play music or have the TV on to help mask the noise of fireworks. Our Animed office cat loves to watching episodes of Strictly Come Dancing on firework nights!
  7. Ignore any fearful behaviour and do not try to comfort your cat. More importantly, do not try to pick him up or restrain him. Fearful cats prefer to be left to cope on their own.
  8. Try not to go out while the fireworks are going off. Stay calm and act normally
  9. In multi-cat households, shutting cats in overnight may cause disharmony amongst your pets. Again, installing Feliway Friends pheromone diffuser will help lower inter-cat tension within the home
  10. If you are worried that your pet is taking a long time to recover from the firework festivities, speak to your vet. Your vet may also wish to refer you to a behavioural therapist.

 Top tips to help your dog?

  1. Provide a den or hiding place for your pet. If you use Adaptil spray in the den this will also help calm and relax your dog.
  2. Use an Adaptil diffuser as close to the den or hiding place as possible, or where your pet spends most of its time
  3. Keep dogs inside during fireworks and check that their microchip is up to date
  4. Ensure windows, doors remain closed during firework season to both prevent pets escaping and reduce the noise
  5. Provide distractions, in the form of new toys and chews. Draw curtains and put the TV on to mask any noise
  6. Do not punish your pet, this will only make your pet more distressed
  7. Try not to leave your pets alone when fireworks are going off
  8. Continue to use Adaptil until the party or fireworks season ends

How does Feliway and Adaptil pheromones work?

Pheromones are natural chemical ‚Äėsignals‚Äô, which are secreted by animals to communicate different types of messages to themselves or others. Certain pheromones have been proven to not only reassure puppies/kittens, but also adult dogs/cats in challenging situations such as fireworks night.

Adaptil and Feliway are synthetic copies of these pheromone and studies have shown its effectiveness in helping dogs and cats with sound sensitivities. Plugging in an Adaptil and Feliway diffusers will help create a calm atmosphere in your home to help your dog and cat with firework anxiety.
