Tonight my house cats and the strays are all behaving aggressively, restless and a nuisance. I went outside to check if there was a full moon, as I couldn't think of any other reason, and indeed there is. Has this been scientifically proven to have an effect on animals? If not, what do you believe?
Some of us, as well as our cats may feel the difference.
In the case of my cats, it's what I call ''the Great Launch'', because they seem to launch themselves from one end of the house to the other, with no apparent reason... They will run furiously all over the place, making acrobatic leaps from the floor to the cat tree to the wall...
It usually calms down after a day or so, but yes, my cats are definitely affected by the ''supermoon''.
As for me... nah, my usual mellow self!
I have a friend who is a nurse and he did a rotation in the maternity ward. He said even though people say it has no affect, the hospital staffs more people on those days because a lot more women go into labor...as well as the ER.
Yes my cats seem to get the crazies more often during them too.
