Can Cats Predict Disaster, Disease or Death? — 4 Comments

  1. Cats are very special beings who have evolved over time and developed unique gifts and abilities which they share and use to help others with whom they live, their family. Who knows exactly how they do what they do. The point is to watch what they do and learn to read the message they are trying to convey with their behavior. Over time, if you are an astute observer, you will understand what they are trying to tell you. Just observe and respond accordingly with an intuitive understanding of their message. You’ll know if you got it right, and they’ll let you know if didn’t–they will redirect you with their behavior until you do understand their message. Cats are quite remarkable (and insistent) in this manner. My cats have a “notifying” routine. Every time someone is (about to be) knocking on my door, my current cat, Diana (“The goddess of the Hunt”), notifies me by erectly and directly sitting up at full attention and stares at the door until someone knocks on it, which without fail, occurs a moment or two later. I never timed the interval between her change in behavior (“notifiction stance”} and the knock on the door, but it can’t be more than 30 seconds to a minute, max., and she does this with 100% accuracy. She also displays similar notification type of behavior which is actually more of a warning. I’ve only had her for two months, so I don’t have a large enough sample of behavior to make scientifically accurate predictions, but I can say that she is a year old, not a kitten, and of the number of people who have visited our home since her arrival, she has consistently (every time) only avoided being anywhere near one particular person each and every time he came inside my home for the entire duration of his each of his visits. After she became acclimated to her new surroundings, he is the only visitor for whom I had to physically transport her from the back of the house (my bedroom–her safety zone) to the den, where I receive people, so she could meet him. Diana immediately jumped out of my arms and ran to the back bedroom. Subsequently, each time this person stopped by, Diana “flew” to the back of the house before he actually made it through the door. I finally asked him not to stop by anymore for reasons of my own which were related to a lack of trust. Diana “nailed it” right off the bat!
