This has always fascinated me. I've seen strange things with my cats as well as my dogs all my life. They can tell you a storm is on it's way before you even know there's a chance of one, just by virtue of their actions. My buddy tries to climb into my skin (he's a scardy-cat.. uh dog) long before I know there's a problem.
Yesterday we had tornado warnings here in North Carolina. A couple I think even touched down in one of the counties north of where I live, leaving some destruction. And please, whoever is reading this, I certainly don't mean to infer that a little destruction is okay, as long as it isn't a lot. I'm sure the people who lived in the homes whose roofs were blown off, or those with a tree sitting on their car wouldn't call it "a little destruction". And my heart goes out to them.
But...I'm back to my fascination with animals who appear to be psychic. I was leaving for work at the club and stopped at the exit of our development which exits onto a rather busy highway. I happened to look across the road, and I saw what appeared to be a herd of deer (are they herds) running alongside the fence. You know, those fences they put on highways for whatever reason they put them there, cause if those deer wanted to jump it, they would... and have before.
I realized they were running from the storm that was approaching from the opposite direction. Now, we have storms all the time, and I've never seen deer trying to outrun them, but we don't have tornadoes often, and I truly believe these animals sensed danger and were fleeing from it.
Shortly thereafter, the news told us that in fact a tornado had touched down a ways from where the deer had been.
Are Animals Psychic... I'm saying absolutely. What's your take on this?
