Next week, we will be glued to our televisions to find out if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow or not. While we all have heard of a groundhog forecasting the weather, there are also other animals that may have this ability too. Last week I heard from someone who knows about the upcoming weather based on her cat’s food intake. Check it out:
“We are back to normal temps here in the South but late December, early January was brutal, dipping into the teens! Funny thing, my outside pets instinctively knew we were headed for some frosty weather. About a month earlier they “forced” me to double up on the cat food, as if they were starving. They never could get enough to eat for some reason. They put on the pounds while my wallet got leaner, but when the cold snap hit, I understood. They are back to eating normal now! Maybe that is prediction of better weather ahead? “
We have run articles in past almanacs about how animals can predict earthquakes but never on how much a cat eats and cold weather. What have you observed with your pets??
