Cat Predicts Major Earthquake Before It Rattles Southeast Australia

There are tons of things worth mentioning about the magnitude 6.0 earthquake that struck near Melbourne, Australia several days ago. It’s one of the biggest earthquakes this continent has ever faced in history and its tremors have destroyed countless buildings in both the country’s second-largest city as well as the neighboring states. And as usual, humans weren’t the fastest ones when it came to predicting such natural disasters.

In a short clip shared on Tweeter on September 22, a white cat named Carol once again proved this species’ incredible gift as she sensed the earthquake only a second before it hit and quickly moved to hide in the doorway – which happens to be the safest place to shelter during strong earthquakes.

At first, Carol’s owner Brodie Lancaster only intended to film the cute feline playing with her new toy, but she end up captured a truly extraordinary moment.

“Not a joke: the earthquake started as I was filming Carol playing with her new floppy fish toy. You can see her notice something’s happening here before I do. I am a dumb woman who thought for a sec *this toy was making the floor shake*,” the woman captioned.

In reply to another Twitterer, Brodie uploaded a photo of her damaged picture frame and wrote: “Lucky my cat is smarter than me cos this happened a second later.”

It’s no secret that animals are way betters than us in sensing huge changes that are about to come. According to a report by the US Geological Survey, many creatures have been recorded heading to a safe place days before a remarkable earthquake.

“The earliest reference we have to unusual animal behavior prior to a significant earthquake is from Greece in 373 BC. Rats, weasels, snakes, and centipedes reportedly left their homes and headed for safety several days before a destructive earthquake. Anecdotal evidence abounds of animals, fish, birds, reptiles, and insects exhibiting strange behavior anywhere from weeks to seconds before an earthquake,” it says.

Isn’t Carol amazing? Please share her story with your loved ones!
