Cats can warn their owners of approaching danger

Cats have long been believed in many cultures to have supernatural powers, to be able to sense the future and warn of danger. In medieval times, black cats were even called witches' helpers, having a connection to dark forces.

Cat owners have noticed that animals can sense danger, including earthquakes, floods, and the impending death of their owners. OBOZREVATEL investigated how cats give signals to their owners and how not to miss a warning of trouble.

What danger can cats sense

Cats have extremely well-developed senses, including a keen sense of smell, vision, and a sense of danger.

There are cases in history when cats have saved their owners. For example, cats are the first to catch the smell of gas or smoke and can warn of a possible tragedy.

In addition, according to a belief, when moving to a new house, you should let a cat in first because it has a fine and accurate sense of smell and can therefore catch the right energy flows.

Speaking of earthquakes, cats can feel vibrations that are inaccessible to humans, so they can sense trouble before the earth's surface begins to tremble. Cats can also "predict" volcanic eruptions, storms, floods, and even bombings.

How cats warn owners about danger

Cats will try in every way to warn you of an impending disaster. They may start meowing loudly, behave unnaturally, try to escape from the house or hide somewhere indoors, and sometimes their behavior may even become aggressive.

You should also pay attention to the cat's appearance. When it senses danger, it pins its ears, raises its fur, ducks to the ground, and moves in circles.

In addition, cats can even sense death. Scientists explain this by the fact that a person's body odor changes before death. In the last stages of the disease, the body releases substances that can be detected by the cat's sense of smell.

Cats can also sense an increase in sugar levels in people with diabetes. When cats catch the symptoms of the disease, they usually lie down on the sore spot, as if taking away bad energy.
