    Default How do your pets handle storms?

    My dog doesn't care at all, unless it comes in cool then he goes under a blanket.

    My mum's dog cries and clings to the nearest human.

    My brother's cat gets terrified.

    My cat had his first big storm a couple of nights ago and he was angry, like really angry about it. Growled and carried on silly.

    So how do your pets cope with storms?

    Not well. Our poor german shepherd follows me around the house, literally at my heels, panting and hyperventilating. You know a storm is coming even before you hear the first bold of thunder because she will stick to you like glue.

    You know how before a storm, you hear all the birds flying around and going mental?

    Well that's what mine do. Except it's inside... near me... so it's noisy as hell and they get told to shut up a lot.

    It's so bloody irritating. Bird screeching is horrible. lol.

    It's like this, but way louder cos it's only a few meters away: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNCKl...eature=related

    My older girl used to get scared and find a place to hide away from it, but now that she's older and her hearing int the best, she doesnt react at all. Our staffy however gets all whingy but not in a frightened way. In a sort of 'I'm looking for what that sound is' kinda way (running all around the yard or house wherever he may be.). When it rains heavily, he likes to 'catch' the raindrops with his mouth! It's kinda cute.
