Why are you reporting this puzzle?

"Cats have the reputation of being weather wise," according to Old Scientist's Almanac (1883). "It is almost universally believed that good weather may be expected when the cat washes herself, but bad when she licks her coat against the grain, or washes her face over her ears or sits with her tail to the fire."
Now in 2014, we seem to be doing pretty well with the technology. Maybe we should focus some of our attention on the world around us — especially cats. As these weather proverbs from that long-ago book suggest:
- When cats sneeze it is a sign of rain.
- When a cat scratches itself, or scratches on a log or tree, it indicates approaching rain.
- The cardinal point to which a cat turns and washes her face after a rain shows the direction from which the wind will blow.
- When cats lie on their back with mouth turned up expect a storm.
- When cats are snoring, foul weather follows.

My vet once explained that sinus pressure which comes with atmospheric pressure is why cats turn their noses to the ceiling before a storm. I have found that my cats are very good with this aspect of weather forecasting. I will have to watch for these other signs-- never heard of them before.

That info is very interesting. I'll be more attentive to their actions from now on. So far I know when my son is here without knowing or hearing him drive up. If my male cat jumps down and runs to my bedroom to hide under the bed, my son has driven up.

I'm afraid to ask - is this little one snoring?? Thanks for the old info - which often proves to be true!
