A FERNDOWN cat homing centre is urging pet owners to keep their animals safe during fireworks season.
The Cats Protection Centre at Ferndown is asking people to keep pets inside after dark and keep windows shut and curtains drawn to prevent animals getting scared or injured by any fireworks.
Donna Ward, manager at the Ferndown Centre, said: “Apart from the obvious physical damage suffered through accidental contact with fireworks, cats can be badly affected by fireworks noise and lights.
“There is also the danger of a pet cat running away and never returning.”
Contact the centre on 0300 0120175 for more information on pet safety.
