We all know things like thunderstorms and fireworks have a tendency to scare our pets.  But here are six common everyday things that can also do it . . .

1.  Changes in routine.  Like if you’re going on vacation or hosting a party.

2.  Moving furniture.

3.  Noisy appliances.  Such as the vacuum or blender.

4.  Insects.

5.  Loud voices.  You don’t have to be yelling AT your pet to freak them out . . . it could be something as simple as rooting for your team while watching the game on TV.

6.  Unfamiliar objects.  Remember when everyone was scaring their cats with cucumbers?
