Mew see, on this night in 1605 - yes I know, that's a furry furry furry long time ago, even older than my P.A. but don't tell her I said that - she's looking remarkably spritely for four hundred and elebenty two!
Yes, we have bonfires and fireworks - now this is the not furry pet furriendly part - the fireworks. While I suppose that most hoomans find them furry purretty and exciting, fur us kitties, other pets, and not furgetting the wildlife - it can be furry distressing - all those loud bangs, booms, screeches & flashing lights - it can be furry disorientating. That's why my P.A. bans us from going outside during that week, as mew neffur know who might be setting the damn things off. Plus some peeps have their bonfires on other nights, as it's not just limited to the 5th, so mew can nuffur be sure when a firecracker might go off! EEEEK!
