The Story Behind The Terribly Scary Storm
“Boris learns a valuable lesson about fear when he faces a scary thunderstorm.” – Harrison Woodard
Background – The Terribly Scary Storm is the 9th story in the Boris Kitty series. The real Boris was one of bravest cats I have ever known. He could climb any tree and stare down dogs three times his size. I once watched him chase two cats over the fence and out of the yard. The cat was fearless.
The only thing that gave Boris pause, was a thunderstorm. As the thunder got close, and the rain started, he would make his way into the utility room to wait out the storm in safety. On rare occasions, I could keep him on my lap for a few moments, but then a large thunder clap would end that quickly.read more

Of course many dogs and cats have been domesticated to the point that living in the wild could be hazardous.read more
