In the day of the Christchurch quake, Modra behaved really weird. It all started in the morning when she was very aggitated and jumping all over the place. We had some table napkins on the counter in the kitchen, she tore them off, litteraly to shreds. Then she was meowing and in a state of playfulness mixed with fear for the rest of the day. The thing is we live quite far from Christchurch (375 Km) and the quake took place @ 1 o'clock during day time, but she was already crazed in the morning. Some 6th sense!
