Calming your Pets during the Fireworks

This is mainly for Cats lovers, yet I know Dogs are just as afraid of Fireworks, so here are a few suggestions to try to calm them down while the firework noise is all around them next week.
 
There are a few things that can send cats into an absolute panic.
You know what some of these triggers are for your cats...
 
Maybe it's an unwelcome dog, an interruption of their all day nap or when you forget to buy them their favorite catnip.
But did you know that many cats are afraid of fireworks?
Yes, that right. Lots of cats have phobias, and the most common cat phobia is fear of noises.
The loud "boom" of fireworks can send some cats into a state of absolute panic. Some animals even have seizures during fireworks.
The 4th of July is just around the corner, so it seems like the right time to talk about this problem.
 
     It does not happen to all cats, but fireworks can turn some cats into real "scaredy cats" when they hear the first booming "crack" of noise. They become extremely nervous and immediately run for cover.
Hiding is a cat's way of seeking protection from danger. So during fireworks or loud thunderstorms, a cat will often seek refuge under a bed or inside a closet. And while most cats emerge from their hiding places unharmed, they feel frightened and anxious throughout the experience.
Many of my subscribers have asked me what they can do when their pets become anxious or nervous, and I think this is especially important to talk about now with the upcoming 4th of July holiday. 
 
Here are 4 very useful tips for helping your cat have a less stressful 4th of July.
 1.  If you are going to the fireworks display, don't take your cat along. If your cat is very frightened by fireworks, consider staying at home so you will be there while the noise is happening.
 2.   Some cats are very sensitive to people's moods and may be influenced by the way that you react to the noise. It is best to act happy and calm to help reassure your cat that all is well.
 3.  If you must leave your cat at home alone during the fireworks, try to keep him comfortable. Bring your cat indoors. Try turning on the television, fan or air conditioner as "white noise". Make sure you provide a comfortable hiding place or "safe place" for your cat to hide if he is scared during the fireworks.
 4.    Pet anxiety studies have shown that music can have a calming effect on a stressed out pet. I would recommend the Music My Pet CD because it was created for the specific purpose of calming pets. These classical music tracks were arranged to have a smooth, soothing dynamic from beginning to end. And the music is performed using only those instruments that have been proven to have a calming effect on pets (like the harp, flute and piano). Try playing the CD before the fireworks begin to ease your cat into a relaxed state, and continue playing it throughout the fireworks.

The hand notes in education are getting outdated. The use of internet and computer is becoming the routine work. The utilization of computer for educational use is getting rampant. The assignments, thesis and dissertations are all made on computers.
