It could bedangerous allowing your cat outside on Independence Day. Your cat could inadvertently get hurt by the fireworks. It is best to bring your cat inside a couple of days before the holiday. Try to keep them in the house for a couple of days after the Fourth, also. The Fourth lasts for a few days and people may be still letting fireworks go off. Since fireworks are unpredictable, they could go off anywhere: up in the air or in the street. Your cat could be up in a tree or just crossing the street. This could put them in danger. For safety's sake, your cat will only be inside for just a short period of time. Have plenty of things for your cat to do, like, having a cat climbing tree or a sisal to scratch and some toys. Be attentative to them. Some people have a kitty sill so your feline can keep an eye out for things going on inside as well as outside. They are very curious. Of course, have a litter box that you keep fresh and clean for you favorite feline. Enjoy the Fourth safely with you cat!
