None of the cats that I have ever had were afraid of thunder.

My mom and I have a cat that is 17 years old. Poor thing doesn't know what to do with Mom in the hospital. Won't eat and just mopes in "his" chair. Poor "Evil Mojo Jojo". My daughter named him after the monkey on "The Power Puff Girls" cartoon.

Mom will be home soon and when he gets really hungry, he will eat. Maybe lot a lot, but he will eat. I am sure he will be so happy to see Mom when she arrives. Or he may just ignore her to punish her. Pets have a way of letting you know that you did something very wrong. And don't you dare do that again!

When I was a teenager and were having a thunderstorm, I would sit on the front porch with Paw Paw, our Maltese cat and watch the storm. She loved it.

You're right about that. He gobbled up his wet food this AM and I put him more dry before I left to go back to the hospital.

If I've been away for a few days horse will go and stand with his back to me and his head in the corner of the stable and refuse to have anything to do with me for a couple of days.
