If you want to know when the next rumble will happen, you can consult your cat. For centuries it has been believed that cats know when an earthquake will hit long before any humans do. So how do our feline friends can predict such a devastating event and we as complex and intelligent human beings are unable to? Many cat observers notice that the cats behavior always changes before an earthquake hits. They notice sometimes a withdrawn or uneasy behavior stemming from the cat. There is no scientific proof of this behavior tied to predicting earthquakes, however the closest thing to scientific proof was an experiment conducted by a California geologist in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Jim Berkland predicted two earthquakes in California by tracking lost pet ads in the newspapers. Berkland's theory was that cats who knew there was a disaster on its way would run away from home to escape the coming catastrophe, and increased lost cat notices on the two occasions led him to predict the earthquakes. Yet even with experiments like Berkland's on the books and with cat families' testimonies, science continues to be skeptical.
2. Cats Can Predict When You Are Pregnant
Cats have an in tune ability to know before the expecting mother or father that a new child is coming. How? I believe since cats are psychic they can see deeper than us humans and can sense life in the smallest possible form. Many women before they knew they were pregnant have reported that suddenly their cats begin to stick to them like a sheep dog protecting its flock. Where ever they go the cat would be either predicting where they are going such as run to the bathroom door and sit and just wait. They have been known to also climb up on pregnant mommy's tummy and just curl up and sleep. It is as though they are protecting someone, an unborn child perhaps!
3. Cats Can Predict Death
This is a certainty, the cat eyes see more than just our Three dimensional world and can easily see the spirit world. The fact is that once we are born, we are stamped like cattle and given a birth certificate which is a stock bond. We are then given a mark for death. That mark is kind of like an expiration date on our three (3d) physical bodies. Once any human is approaching their expiration date, your cat will sense that you will soon be departing this world. People are usually marked for death by the angel of death himself which many of us call the grim reaper. If your time on earth will expire soon, you will see your cat becoming quite clingy also. He/She will exhibit more chatter with you and even may become a bit depressed.
Yes, the power of the pet continues to baffle even doctors today. Cats have been widely known to save many owners life by detecting health issues in them before the owner or the doctor. How is the question many have asked. Well, many times if we pay close attention to out pets we will know when they are trying to speak to us. If they could open their mouth and speak English i am sure that we would know things about our body and this earth that may startle, shock or amaze us. When cats predict certain illnesses such as say a breast cancer, cats will try and get our attention to the area that has the illness by either focusing on that area, keeps on pawing on that area or possible try to always lie on that area. Many cats will do a little meow when they are near that ill area to let us know that something is wrong. It is for us to just pay attention.
Our feline friends are more than just our pets, our buddies. They are our family, our protectors at times and many times our life savers.
