It’s nearly that time of year again. The time when your dog might tremble, whine, or pace. The time when your cat might hide in a cupboard, under the bed, or inside your couch. The time when your guinea pig or other small critter might shake, bolt, or run for cover. It’s the season of lightning bolts electrifying the sky and thunder roaring through our neighborhood.

To read more check out my post Storm Stress and Your Pet. Information for the article has been compiled from various online resources, all listed at the end, but also supplemented by local vets.

Not originally being from Nebraska, I remember how panicked and unprepared I felt the first time I heard a tornado siren. Since that time, I’ve learned to check the weather radar, grab pets, and head to the basement. Yet I have to admit that I’m still relatively naïve about how to protect pets during natural disasters.

To read more check out my post Storm Stress and Your Pet. The response from Dr. Amy Walker of Cotner Pet Care also supported the main points in the Prepare section.

Our Little Bit hated fireworks and thunder and lightening. We took every precaution when these two things were happening.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Until he went deaf, my in-laws’ dog used to hate storms too. Although unusual, one of my current cats dislikes storms too. Thanks for sharing!
