Does the weather affect your pets' behavior?

When there is bad weather approaching my cats start acting crazier then usual. lol They are up and down the hallways, bouncing off walls, jumping on and off the couch and bed, fighting with each other. It is just non stop it seems. The white one, Merle is the worst. His eyes get right big and he just can't sit still especially if the wind is blowing hard. It should be an interesting evening at our place once the wind picks up. The picture is Merle and Harley resting quickly. That won't last long!!

My old man cat (14 years) doesn't like bad weather at all. This morning the wind was whipping and I had gone back to bed. He jumped right onto the bed and snuggled up with me. He never does that. With thunderstorms we put him under the blankets and he shakes and drools.

Oh boy. I bet the wind is going to result in some very active kitty cats. Our pup Molly is petrified of thunderstorms. Pitiful to watch her being so terrified. The wind bothers her too and she stares at my husband and me with the hope we can go out there and stop it.

My dogs can't stand a lightning storm. Castle and Beckett (name after the characters in the TV series) would be so distraught they would be barking and running around wildly. Castle is the more cowardly. He would jump into my lap and cover his eyes with his paws. I can feel his heart beating rapidly as I try to calm him with soothing words while hugging him tightly.

My SId sends them both a great big sympathetic meow. He knows what a big wind means. Once the wind picks up he is practically bouncing off the walls. Running up and down the stairs. Wanting out and then getting a face full of wind and running back in and almost knocking me down. I usually find a place where I can be out of the way and let him run himself out like a clock unwinding and finally settle down You have such adorable cats their names make me think of this - Merle Haggard and Harley Davidson
