Who needs a weather alert radio?

I was at the computer when I heard a large rumble. I thought it was one of the farmers going down the road with a string of empty gravity wagons. I went out the front door and looked up and down the road. Nothing in site. Then I heard it again. It was thunder, not the load crack just a very loud rumble. Came in and thought I had better bring some more wood in for the stove. When I went to the back door, all 3 cats couldn't wait to come in. Sounded real nasty, but we only got 10 mins. of rain, hail and winds. Thought it would be much worst.

My cats aren't spoilt, Just well loved.

Yes, I can usually tell when a storm is coming because Jack will run for the nearest sofa to hide under. All 26+ pounds of him! Squished flat as can be under there with his BIG eyes peering out. Most of our storms come from the west here so I can usually look out and see the storm clouds coming ahead of time but as soon as that thunder rumbles my cats take off. I agree, save your money - we have weather alert systems right in our own homes!

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"

My cat, Lucy, sits in the middle of the stairwell! I call her my weather alert cat!

On the 23rd, we had bad storms and tornado warnings locally. I knew a storm was headed our way but didn't know how close it was - until I saw Ellie bolt up from a deep sleep, pupils big, looking out the window. About 30 seconds later a huge rumble of thunder, pouring rain and massive wind gusts came out of nowhere! I agree, cats are the perfect weather alert!
