Inquiries and concerns about Solar Eclipse pet protection is gaining momentum around my town lately. Pawbably because Charleston happens to be in the direct path of its totality…
On Monday, August 21st the moon will completely block out the sun over a 70 mile wide path that will cross the United States from Oregon to South Carolina. My “happy place” Charleston, SC is located in the direct path which will allow us to see a total eclipse at approx. 2:45 that afternoon.
This will be the first total solar eclipse to stretch coast to coast in the continental United States in 99 years.
PET PROTECTION –
At 2:45pm I will be at work. What should I do about the Boys? Do they need their eyes protected also?…
Significant data simply isn’t available. The more I searched the more I found conflicting information.
Believe it or not some articles I read said –
Pet’s don’t necessarily need glasses, but it wouldn’t hurt. Source: AJC.com
While another expert felt pets weren’t in any danger because –
On a normal day, your pets don’t try to look at the sun, and therefore don’t damage their eyes…
MY PLANS? –
Mondays are always “chill days” in Doodleville. Normally they lounge around recuperating from the weekend.
Before leaving for work, I will pawbably turn on a few lights and alter the blinds a bit. #mypeaceofmind
With the exception of Harley & Jaxson becoming slightly confused due to sudden darkness during the middle of the day, I doubt anything significant with them will occur. #pawscrossed
I’ll borrow Jaxson’s solar eyewear and peak just a little out of my office window, so I can grow old and say “I saw it!”
Will you be watching?
