We love this country; we love celebrating Independence Day; we love the skies filled with pretty light; but we hate the noise!
Okay, so mom is an HSP (highly-sensitive person) and so am I, says Autumn. Loudness makes us nervous. Last night, I spent hours shaking from the scare of the boom-booms and bang-bangs and POWS! every few seconds. I ran to my mom and I let her hug me and she told me all would be okay and it was, eventually. I was even brave enough to go outside when it got a little less noisy, tail between my legs, with mom encouraging me, to do my business, then we rushed back in. Wow, what a challenge, but I did it! In the past, I never would've gotten out the door and would've been under the bed with The Bitz (my sister-cat), hiding through the racket. The Bitz came out later but even the next afternoon, she wouldn't go out.
It was just a have-to thing that people do every year. They have fun but it ain't much fun for me. Mom says about a half hour of booms would've been enough for her. Next year, I hope my mom and me get out-of-town. That or get some really good earplugs.
As for our flag gift from the Family of Lucy & Daisy. Thanks! Mom and me are happy to see it; it is beautiful and so QUIET.
