Sunday Selfie

Last night was a little rough here because some of our neighbors began shooting fireworks.  In South Carolina, the general public can purchase and shoot fireworks (even in neighborhoods like ours). Poor Truffle spent most of the evening under the bed.  Around midnight, she finally came out from under the bed and joined Mom Paula in the living room to watch some TV.

We have a feeling there are going to be several more nights of fireworks and even thunderstorms.  Truffle didn't used to be afraid of loud noises, but something must have spooked her a couple of years ago, because now she takes off at the first clap of thunder or bang of fireworks.

  1. I empathize with Truffle and all the other animals, I hate the thunderstorms and fireworks too. At least I can wear headphones. :(

  3. Truffle they've been shooting off fireworks for about week around our house. But like you last night being a Saturday night I guess, too many of them had to get a head start on the 4th. We know like you we have firework tents all around, so these foolish humans will just go and buy more to set off. WE hope it rains all night! Great selfie of you!

  4. What big eyes you have. We don't like the firecrackers around here either. They are loud

  5. That is a lovely selfie. We don't get fireworks too close to us.

  6. Why don't humans realize just how sensitive animal ears are? It HURTS to hear these loud noises on top of being scary.

  7. Oh, I'm sorry to hear Truffle had such a difficult evening. Technically, fireworks are illegal around here, but a few people always set off some firecrackers. It doesn't bother our animals, but it annoys me!

  8. We love your good looking selfie. We don't like the booms either. We used to run under the couch but after discussion decided to run in and be with Dad. He will make sure we are safe. Your Mom will keep you safe too. Purrs
    Happy 4th of July

  9. We hate fireworks too. So far we've only heard a little but we know it's coming.

  10. Now I can't say I blame her, those stupid banging things are, well just stupid. I'd rather the peeps spent the money wasted on something worthwhile, and whilst I wouldn't say know to more cream, I sure think there are folks that could do with some extra help themselves.
    Despite all that commotion, you sure do look mighty fine, Truffle.

  11. Pretty girl! Stay safe and quiet. We are wishing a nice quiet weekend and 4th celebrations for you. It is legal here in Connecticat to blow off those awful noise makers until 10PM. It's not a cellybration its inconsiderashun. Pftttttt. The new kittens, T&T are not scared of noises yet.

  12. Poor Truffle. Those fireworks should be left to the professionals, not to the general public just shooting them off at all hours. :(

  15. Neighbors have been shooting off fireworks the last couple of nights. Tonight Marcus is glued to Jan's feet. He actually wanted to be in Jan's lap but he's a bit big and heavy.

  17. We just has out first firecracker! The kitties are not afraid of them, but Angel started running toward the noise and growling. She wanted to protect the house!

  18. We have an ordinance banning fireworks in the city, but you'd never know it!! Holy cow, some people have a veritable ARSENAL that they set off on the 4th DESPITE the fact that we have a public fireworks display that is free (and safe). I always worry about the animals (domesticated and otherwise) and military veterans; it cannot be fun for them.

  19. So sorry you had to hear those nasty fireworks.

    We have the same problem here in England. Fireworks are available for the general public to buy and it's horrible. The worst of it for us is during November (Guy Fawkes's Night is celebrated on the 5th).

  21. We are in Michigan like the Island Cats (we live about a half hour away from them), and ours start at Memorial Day and continue. I think most cities in the U.S. allow them, doesn't matter where you live. Cody isn't bothered by them, but Dakota can't stand them. We crank our TV up super, super loud to help drown them out. I wish they would be banned everywhere except public displays.

  23. Truffle, your eyes are definitely big and wide here. You are a super gorgeous lady. It is raining here so fireworks may be a bust. Neighbors have been setting them off for several days in our neighborhood. Very loud. Thanks for hopping.

  24. Fireworks are not brilliant when mixed with ordinary people. Leave it to experts!
