Thunder and lightning are a natural phenomenon and some places have far more of this than others.

Do you live in an area where there is a lot of this activity?

Are you or one of your pets frightened of the thunder and lightning?

I have to say where we live we do get some action in winter.
I'm not a big fan of thunder...my heart jumps a mile.

Lightning scares me if I am out driving only.
If home I'm safe....Have no pets, so just me to worry about.

The people in our house love them, the peoples (our doggies) detest it, and it really terrifies them. Nothing we do puts them at ease, and it is horrible to watch them so anxious and unable to settle until it passes. As much as I would rather not have to I think I have no option but to get the Vet to prescribe some puppy valium.
No, no-one in my family is. On hearing the kids at the local school all scream after a particularly loud thunderclap my four year old said "why are they screaming? It's just Thor."
Cute!

I thought so too, though if Thor actually existed I'd be scared of him.

We have a lot of big storms here in the Summer so I think the kids are just used to them.
My dogs are not at all frightened but I am!
I think it possibly stems from later in my life when I lived on acreage and the noise seemed far louder than in the City.
Also it sound like it struck something several times.
I am from Sydney originally where we had a lot of thunderstorms, but in Perth we do not often get them, yet I am still scared!

No, I'm fine with it. We don't get that much where we live and it doesn't bother me.
My little dog is so scared of thunder that i have to drug her , she shakes with fear and heart beat goes too fast. Put her inside with music going , her bed , toys and my other dog but takes a lot to settle her. I love big storms , but we don't get a lot now we've moved to Melbourne. which is good for the dog's sake.
Nessa, My dogs are the opposite -the one loves thunder as he thinks (possibly) it is time to go hunting and gets excited!

your very lucky , it's a very stressful time for her and me . As she gets older i don't think her heart will take much more ...

I used to be as a child but have out grown it. Our dog Buffy whonis long gone was terrifed of thunder and lightening, and knew long before we did it was on the way
No ,none of us! One of my dogs was born deaf and she is totally oblivious! However,when I was little,the dog we had then was terrified and would hide under the bed,He would then get stuck and we would have to get Dad to rescue him!!!
I am very scared of thunder will not stay alone if there is thunder rolling

Terrified ever since reading lightening can strike you inside your home. Don't like doing anything with water while it's overhead either.
Neither bothers me!
Heard big noisy clap of thunder about an hour ago, & my Siamese went airborne, he got such a fright! I did have to laugh at him 'coz it looked so FUNNY. Poor Puss!

Saw lightening strike a dead tree in a paddock one night! Talk about a 'Roman Candle' firework! Wow!
