    ...that's more anxious about the fireworks than my animals?

    I'm a nervous wreck everytime one goes off in case they scare the furries, yet Spooks is snoozing away without a care in the world and the bunnies are sat munching on hay like they normally would :lol:


    I'll be glad when it's all over! :eek:

    Aw bless you :( I hated it when Max was around, was always worried the fireworks would set his epilepsy off. He never liked fireworks at the best of times.

    That said I really don't like them at all, I had an awful experience when I was little and it's never really gone away, used to force myself to take the boys to watch the fireowrks when they were little, but now they are older I can ignore them :(

    I've never liked them, either, I hate anything that sparks or bangs so fireworks are pretty unfortunate for me :blush:

    Last year, the bunnies were indoors so I didn't mind it at all- turned up the TV and had no worries but I hate that they're outside this time :( They're in an insulated shed but I'm still so scared for them :rolleyes::

    I think I'll be bringing them in tomorrow when it's at its worst then I can worry about them getting too warm instead :blink:

    At this moment I would like to get a firework, stick it up my neighbous jacksy and light it :mad: He was still letting fireworks off after 10 last night and doing it again tonight, why?! Never bothers to warn any of the neighbours and the moron has a dog himself (jack russell) who is outside in the garden running round barking

    What an idiot! I want to go and do this to him: :nono:

    :lol:

    I think organised displays should only be allowed. People shouldn't be able to buy them over the counter, they're far too dangerous and it's often the numpties that get hold of them :mad:

    When my terrier was around he was petrified, I had to get him a DAP collar for Guy Fawkes and NYE to take his fear down from completely petrified to very scared :(

    The cats and chickens are really not bothered at all, which is a big relief in fairness.

    I think they should only be allowed for organised displays, I don't think any Tom, Dick or Harry should be able to buy them.

    Nope, I'm the same! Everytime one goes off, I not only jump out my skin, but look straight at Sophie to check she's not spooked by it - nope, she's not even batted an eyelid at them! And they're been going off constantly since it got dark...

    I hate Bonfire night, but we never did it on the 5th, we did it on the 7th because it's my cousin's birthday. For years we did fireworks and I used to hide out inside cus I hated them. There were two occasions my mom and cousin nearly got hit by a rogue Catherine wheel and that's when we decided to stop.

    Unless it's an organised display, the things should be banned.
