Does your pet have a special place to hide when things get too much for him or her?

My Sophie from the first time she came into my life had a special hide away from everyone and everything. When there gets to be too many people here she goes to her special place. I wish I could join her but do not wan to interfer. I wish I could hide at times too but I do not have a special place like she does. So, do those of you that have pets do they have a special hiding place only for them?

Both my dogs had their special place, especially when it started to thunder or any other loud noises were around, such as fireworks.

@Hannihar Rascal's was down behind and under the headboard for my waterbed frame. Though I no longer had a waterbed, I still used the frame. He crawled under there. It took me a long time to find him the first time. In fact, it wasn't until he crawled out of there, that I found him. I think Pip crawled under my bed. I did find her there on several occasions.

Molly hides due to thunderstorms. She actually rides out thunderstorms under the eaves at the back of our house. She is covered by day lily and hosta plants back there. She has a doggy door which allows her 24/7 access to indoors and outdoors, and for some strange reason she feels safer outdoors rather than indoors during storms.

@Corbin5 I wonder why she feels safer outdoors than indoors.

@Hannihar I think sound of rain falling on the roof scares here. Maybe the house shakes a bit due to thunder. Our old dog Bo would hide in the bathroom during thunderstorms, but Molly has chosen outdoors.

@Corbin5 Maybe she feels less afraid out there.

For some reason, the kitties love to hide under my bed or the guest room bed.

@Hannihar Until they feel safe. Last night we had thunder, and Doodles slept by my side of the bed with his little baby.

@DianneN I bet Doodles felt very safe because he knows how much he was loved. Sophie and I played laser and yarn on her birthday and I think she had fun because I was paying attention to her.

@bluesa Is she under there when you want to go to bed too?

@bluesa She must feel secure there and knowing you are above her makes her feel safer yet.

My pet sheep didn't really have a special place but if it started to rain, he would run into his shed.

@JudyEv Judy, makes perfect sense for him to go to the shed if it rains.

@Hannihar Yes. Although he was only a sheep he certainly wasn't stupid.

@JudyEv He was your pet and he knew what to do. There are people that have no clue as to what to do when it rains so I would say he was very smart.

My grand-dogs are funny, one wants to go to the room she and her human sleep while visiting me. My two gran-dogs that live with my middle son love the family room (they sleep on the couches) and are not allowed in the kitchen, they behave well. My youngest and his partner have Boston Terriers, they are little and they can go where ever they want too. We don't have pets because when we want to travel we don't have to find a place for the dogs. When our children were younger we had a house full of dogs and cats.

@PainsOnSlate I understand why you want to be free so you do not have to worry about furry ones and if you miss them you can see them at families.

I hope nobody else knows her hiding place, specially the pet's in trouble.

@Letranknight2015 I don't know where she is so cannot tell anyone else. Her hiding place is inside our home so no other animals can see her.

My dog used to hid under a shelf in the basement or he would dig a hole under a tree and hide there.

Our guinea pig loved to hide under an upturned laundry basket. He knew how to flip it and get inside.

My uncle used to have dogs. They used to go under the car. It is difficult to pull them out. Especially the labrador. That one used to do some mischief. And then run and hide under the car when anybody would scold him.

@vandana7 Smart dog. I had a lab. She was very sweet and protective of her cat sister.

not sure it is really a hiding place..or just a hang out place. He likes to go to the very top of the cabinets. He feels safe there, hidden there, and he can survey his domain. Another favorite place is under the table.

@snowy22315 There are good places as long as he feels safe in both of them.

Our little dog will hide under the bed or behind the love seat. She's afraid of too many people or loud noises

When we'd have thunderstorms my dog would hide on a rolling cart behind the cleaning supplies. Later, when storms approached (or during fireworks season), I'd sit in the middle of the house and hold her on my lap, covering her with a blanket. She'd still shake with fear, but not as badly.

@FourWalls Those noises are very hard on their ears. They have exceptional hearing.

My older cat hides under one of the end table in our living room. Our other cat likes to crawl under a blanket or whatever he can get under.

@Happy2BeMe Makes good sense what they both do.

under chairs, behind tables, or they just lie down on the floor.

Our kitten's hideout place is the spot under a desk, next to the stairs. He always hides under there whenever he realizes he did something bad.
