A cat can predict the approach of rain and bad weather

People have long claimed that cats can predict the weather. The behavior of our four-legged friends has been used to anticipate when a cold snap would come and whether it would rain soon.

It is important to be able to "decode" the signs that pets show us through their behavior. Read the OBOZREVATEL article to find out how cats predict the weather and what they do before rain and warming.

Whether it will rain or not

Several folk signs suggest a cat can sense the approach of bad weather.

For example, before the rain, the cat will drink more water than usual. Before bad weather, the animal will wash its face, tail, and ears.

There are also some interesting signs: if the cat starts snoring or sneezing, you should expect rain. However, this can also be a sign of health problems, so don't rely too much on folk superstitions; it's better to schedule a visit to the vet.

How a cat indicates the approach of cold weather

It's obvious: when it gets cold, cats look for a warm place. They can sleep near a radiator, a heater, on a warm blanket, in a closet, and near other heat sources. The cat will also curl up and cover its nose with its paw.

Cat's signs of warming

If the cat starts stretching, forming an arc with its body, it means that it will soon be warm outside. In addition, the cat will go to sleep not in a ball but in a semicircle or lazily stretching its belly up.

Before the heat, the cat will choose cool places to sleep - window sills, bathtubs, or the floor.
