New Year's Eve

This was New Year's Eve in our backyard last night. In the Netherlands everyone is allowed to buy fireworks at December 31th and lighting it after midnight in the streets. Well our neighbourhood unfortunately has a lot of lovers of  fireworks, it looks beautiful for a moment but the noise is terrible.

It felt we ended up in a war zone.

Our poor kitty Sofietje was frightened to death and hid in the attic behind all kind of stuff. We didn't see her for some hours, but when we went to bed she came to our bedroom and jumped on the bed for comfort and stayed there all night lying on my feet.

Now she has found peace at last in her cardboard box and is sleeping the day away.

  2. Well you didn't have to go far to see the fireworks Marianne 😊 poor Sofietje, I really sorry about our furry friends when the fireworks go off, must be so scary for them. Interesting to hear that anyone can buy fireworks, in Australia it's illegal for individuals to set fireworks off. Happy new year Marianne, let's hope it's a good one 😊

  4. Je kunt het een dier ook niet uitleggen, dat is het vervelende. Gelukkig is het maar één dag per jaar.

  7. Poor kitty! We had some fireworks in our neighborhood, too, and our dog does not like that at all. Nothing like yours with the "war zone" feel, thank goodness.

  9. Happy New Year, to you and your family.
    Fireworks can upset our pets, all the loud bangs and noise.
    Sofietje is so very sweet and love the photo of her in the box.
    Best wishes for a wonderful 2017
    hugs

  11. It is a sad time for animals. We are no longer allowed to have private fire works due to many accidents and the risk of bush fires.

  12. Yes, animals don't like them one bit. We had snow on New Year's Eve- there were fireworks displays in a couple of areas, but I was at home, didn't hear any of it. I wondered if the snow was muffling the sound.

  13. We had a very lots of fireworks now, because Finland is 100 years old this year 2017.
    Everybody here is also allowed to buy them.
    Happy this year !
