Don't drink and drive.
Don't text and drive.
Don't drink and text (you can get into a lot of trouble this way, too).
When boating, wear a big orange life vest (you humans look so funny in those).
Play with your bunnies and give them lots of treats!
|Be grateful to be in the land of the free and the home of the buns.|
It stresses them just like other sudden and/or loud noises.
If your bunny's neighborhood is firecracker noisy, keep the buns cool and quiet.
Close the windows and doors.
Play music - peaceful, easy listening (not loud). Think elevator music.
(No hair bands or hare bands. Stay away from 1812 Overture.)
Your TV service might even have a suitable channel in its lineup - you just never tune to those channels.
If you do not already have boxes for them to play on and in, get some plain cardboard boxes (not slick or a lot of ink/color, no staples, labels or tape); cut at least two openings in each box big enough for your bunny to get in and out. They can hide in them, to further mute the noise and feel a little safer.
Keep them company and reassure them that everything's okay. Pet them if they are the petting kind of bunnies. Have a couple of healthy treats handy (Bunya told me to say that).
Have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July holiday!

Previously saw these bunnies celebrating on the GHRS Facebook page and their humans from Langhorne, PA graciously sent their too cute pictures for the RR Fourth of July ...
|Meet Chloe & Casper,|
Rabbit Ramblings' 4th of July bunnies!
<< Insert "SQUEEE" here >>
(Chloe looks like a living Rorschach test)
|And Daffney is preparing for the sunshine and cookout|
(or maybe the fireworks ... be a dear and fetch her ear plugs, please).
P.S. Daffney, a lionhead, was adopted from the Bucks County SPCA.
Four lucky bunnies (two bonded couples) live together with well-trained human servants who have been adopting rabbits for over 20 years -- way to go!
Wisely, all bunnies are "math-impaired" (they can't multiply).
