When we first rescued her, or she rescued us (depends on who you ask) Raven would panic when there were storms. She would run from room to room panting, terrified. She is still uncomfortable about storms and is not a big fan, but now she self-comforts more than in the past. Lately, she has taken to hiding in my office when the storms are bad. A small price to pay for her comfort. I have also found that she loves the concept of having music on. In particular, she likes the Amazon Alexa streamed classical channel. I think the quiet sound of music makes her feel better about the storm raging outside. Plus in the basement office, she can’t see the lightning or hear the thunder as loudly with her music playing.
I feel bad for her discomfort; I am glad she is finding ways to self-soothe!
