Recent aggression??

Ok, call me nuts, but I think the winter storms or something has freaked out cats. Within the last day or two, I have heard of a ton of incidents of unusual aggression. Last night, all three cats (I was visiting my parents who also have a cat and a dog) suddenly fluffed up, started yeowling, and straight out attacked the dog. I got clawed really badly pulling fink off of him, before we were able to get the dog outside and lock up the cats. It took hours for every one to calm back down.

Then, later last night, my sister called and was telling us about how her cat was growling and hissing at them, which he has never done before!

So, this might be a case of noticing things once I'm affected, but I'm just curious. Anyone else's kitties been on edge lately as well?

I know there was an earthquake back east...
Animals are very sensitive to vibrations, scents and atmospheric pressure/weather changes...so this could have something to do with it!!:p

Ugh, full moon would definitely not make things any better. My friend works in a psych ward at a nursing home, and around the full moon it just gets awful!

I still say cats can be fierce. Every now and then my cat gives me a look and it freaks me out!
