Fireworks!!

Hammy doesn't really like loud noises. He freaks out a bit when there are storms and stuff.

Every year there is an event in New Zealand called 'Guy Fawkes Day'. It's a bit like Halloween, but with fireworks. This year Guy Fawkes fell on a weekday, so that meant that they did the fireworks not only on the day, but also on the weekend.

This is how Hammy usually is when there are fireworks:

WAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!
This year, Rumblemum decided to be prepared. She's been getting this 'Happy' supplement from Epic Health to try and help Hammy feel better about things that usually freak him out. All week she dosed our food with the 'Happy' in preparation of the noise.

So this is how Hammy was this year for the fireworks:

ZzzZzzzz

... Ok, so not quite. But what did happen this year is that Rumbledad, me and Hammy ALL sat at the window together watching the fireworks! Hammy and I were both unfazed by the noise, even though it was much louder here than in our previous apartment. We used to hide under the bed, and we wouldn't come out for ages after, but not this year!

We're big fans of Epic Health- and in the interest of full disclosure we want to say that while we got a bottle of Happy to try, we've since bought a bottle and will buy more - it works wonderfully. In fact a lady that Rumblemum works with bought a bottle for her kitty because he was over-grooming himself, and within two days of using it he'd stopped over-grooming and was being super smooch-y again!

And speaking of super smooch-y...
I'm cool as a cucumber!

Wow, that is pretty amazing! My human wishes there was something that would make me stop being mean to Binga and Boodie when they come back from the vet! What can I say? They stink when they come back and it's disgusting.

Oh those dang fireworks. They scare most of us kitties. It's good you found Happy juice - we're going to keep that in mind.

Brian said...

WOW! I'm glad that Happy worked, we could use that too!

Flynn said...

That is good that your Happy kept you calm. Eric used to like watching fireworks in the distance but I never liked them much. This year I was really scared by all the bangs.

We think we could use some of this Happy stuff. :)

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

MOWZERS, that's pretty impressive stuff if you guys were that calm!!

The Indulged Furries said...

We're glad to hear the "Happy" made it easier for you to enjoy the fireworks.

BeadedTail said...

I could use some of that since I get so worked up with loud noises. I get worked up seeing handsome Mancats too!

Purrs,

Rumbles, you are DEVILISHLY handsome! Hey--why don't we in the U.S. celebrate Guy Fawkes Day?? Ohhh, right....he failed, didn't he! (Tee-hee, I am wicked!)

RedSetter said...

Red did very well this year even though I forgot to give him his chillout powder. Magic as usual ignored the whole shebang!

Oz theTerrier said...

Rumbles, I am so glad the Epic supplements are working for you and Hammy (and now your mom's friend's kitty as well)!! Totally pawesome!

Sounds like you guys are nippin' into the good stuff. Maybe I need some of that because I'm scared of EVERYTHING...except handsome mancats!

mythreemoggies said...

WOW Rumble x

Andrea said...

Uh...is there a link to where we could buy this "Happy" ? We have tried Rescue Remedy but it wasn't quite as helpful as we would have liked.

Mom has been putting calming collars on us, and they work pretty well. This stuff sounds even better. Do they have it in the states? She's going to see if she can find some. Thanks for telling us about it. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
