Thirteen Reasons Why We Think Thunderstorms are Skeery

1. The lightning

2. The thunder boomies

3. The rain

4. The hail

5. We get wet if we go out in our cat enclosure

6. The silly weather beans on the talking picture box getting all iscited

7. The noisy water splashing against patio doors

8. The humongous CRACK when lightning hits something

9. The electricity flicks on & off and all the electronics in the house go beep-beep, whirr, click

10. Our fountains turn on & off when the electricity flickers

11. Sometimes if the storm is really bad, then Maw gets skeered and we pick up on her fear

12. Annie howls when it storms acuz she gitz reely skeered of thunder-boomies

13. Sometimes the city warning sirens go off and they hurt our ears

I hate all of those things about thudnerstorms, too! It is safest just to hide under the bed.

Parker said...

They are not our favorite things either - we usually stick close to the 'rents. They keep us safe and sound!

The storms don't really bother me and the thunder boomies don't, long as they are up in the sky. I think the human gets more afraid than I do. Sometimes I have to protect her from the storms.

I don't like any of those things about thunderstorms either! I usually hide under a blanket on my Mum's lap.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

I'm not skeered of the Boomies, and I like watching the big flashes. Mum and Flynn get skeered though.

Lux said...

Oh, storms are the worst - thank goodness we don't get a lot of them!

I hope that any storms you had today were not so bad.
We had some bad ones last week in the middle of the night. Mom said she thought she was gonna die because the lightning was right next to the house for about 10 minutes.
Blizzie and Teeniebelle came to our rooms to be with us.

I do not like thunderstormies either.
Last year the house donw the street was struck by lightning!!!! yikes

eeek! that sure does sound scary! we almost never have thunder here and if we do you can't really hear it over the waterfall noise coming from the turtle tank unless you're in one of the back bedrooms where we usually aren't. when there's gonna be a little rain, those weather people come on the TV and call it a "Rain Event". they overdo everything.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Those are all good reasons to be scared of t-storms. We don't like them either.

Just Ducky said...

Stay safe you guys. The only thing that really bothers me is big hail. When we had that two years ago I ran all around the house, it was really scary. It was so bad mum had to get the roof redone.

Team Tabby said...

We are the same as you. We hates thunderstorms. We gotta hide.

We don't get thunderstorms here, but do up at our mountain house. I agree, they are scairy!


Sunny's Mommy said...

Yeah they can be very scary. Sunny will run from room to room, trying to find something to hide under or behind of. Then once he finds a spot, he decides there might be a better spot in another room.
