While most of us humans enjoy the sounds and sights of fireworks, animals feel very differently about it.
Well, the Italian town of Collecchio, in the province of Parma, is doing something about this. In 2015, the local government introduced new legislation whereby people are required to use "silent fireworks." This is a means of respecting the animals and reducing the strain and anxiety it causes in them.
I recently mentioned to my veterinarian that I make cat towers. (I mentioned this in reference to my cat's behavior; it's not that I was trying to sell the vet on my work.) But, as it happened, I ended up showing her photos from the Square Paws website.
"Oh my! These aren't cat towers; these are ART!" she responded as she scrolled down the screen.
It's not the first time I've heard that, and hopefully it won't be the last.
