They seem to know well in advance when a storm is coming too. Dogs start whining early in the day when a storm is close. Some are more in tune than
others. A while back one of my dogs was extremely upset while a tornado raged 40 miles away.
Oh, I know that story! One of my kitties, Rudy, is always scared of storms. He has to be let in the bedroom to hide under the bed. It seems that
nothing else bothers him much, he's the first to greet new people at the door, and isn't afraid of anything else I can think of. But, if it's
thundering, he's the worst fraidy-cat! So funny!
We had a German Sheppard when I was a kid that would actually turn the door knob to get in the house when a bad thunderstorm loomed. Back then we
kept the windows open and ran fans. He would would come through the windows too.
