Keep them in like it's Bonfire night?

The last thunder storm we had a cat ran away from home and got run over and I had to deliver it to it's owner who was inconsolable.

My old cat used to love fireworks, to the extent that he used to get quite agitated if he couldn't get past the curtains to see them!

My boss has just texted me to tell me to work from home tomorrow (probably no trains anyway) so i shall be able to keep and eye on Didokitty when the storm comes. Seems to be predicted between 5 and 8am here (Kent).

Hope all are ok.

Mines been in all day but next doors cats are out hmm

I haven't seen any ferals around here, all of the local cats have a layer of flubber.

nuns of gaverone have you considered fostering cats for a rescue would give you your cats in the house fix and the rescue pays all costs especially as you are at home all day, i foster kittens for the rescue i work at and love having babies in the house for a short time and knowing that when they leave me they are going to be dog proof, cat proof, grandchildren (think kelsey love hug till you get friendly hugs) used to household sounds its something very worth while or if not fostering working at a local cat center as a volunteer i have done this for 6 years now and i answer the phone, show people round, feed the cats, clean the pens, cuddle the cats and of course get to play with kitties

Fox number 2 just been. No storm as yet.

It's really peaceful here, east mids, eerily so in fact which is most likely a bad sign.

I never see a fox here sad

Crazycat is a wanker homecat due to the local bully cats who roam the gardens here, but she hates wind and will come to me for a reasurring chinrub. In North London...not much happening weather wise.

Our beautiful Snowshoe has just come hairing up the front path and dived in through the flap which is now locked. I was really miffed when the silly sod snuck out earlier and I was a bit bothered about him out there. He's safe and sound and soaking wet now. The Lion never stirred from atop the sofa thank goodness. He's very stupid and would have stayed out.

It's disgusting out there now and we haven't had the worst yet.

Is everyone safe so far?

Nothing much happened here in Worcestershire. Sparkling Cat is sunning herself on the patio.

Hope all the other furries are ok.

All a storm in a teacup here in East London. A bit breezy, nothing more. I don't think the cats even noticed.

Lots of trees down and branches everywhere in Kent.

We are fine though. Didokitty sensibly spent the night sleeping on my bed (OH is away) and didnlt seem to scared at the howling gale.

Pretty quiet here too (we've had worse storms where we are tbh!) but the rain keeps coming down.

Kitten also chose today to disappear over the fence for the first time ever shock just before a heavy rain shower so I went to get her back from the neighbours garden - she was not impressed but I didn't want her getting stuck over there in the rain!!
