In almost every country where they were known, cats were believed to have mystical powers, and among other things, to be able to foretell and control the weather. Here is a list of what can be expected weather-wise based on cat behavior and actions:

  • When cats run about wildly, or claw at carpets and cushions, wind is coming.
  • A cat sleeping with all four paws tucked under means bad weather is coming.
  • When the pupil of a cat’s eye broadens, there will be rain.
  • A cat washing itself is believed to be a forecast of rain.
  • To throw a cat overboard causes an immediate storm at sea.
  • If a cat sneezes it will rain.
  • If the cat turns its tail to a fire or any substituting heat source, it foretells a possible change in weather, particularly the coming of heavy rain or hard frost.
  • If a cat sits with its back to the fire, it is a sure sign of frost.
  • If a cat curls up with its forehead touching the ground, it indicates that storms will happen in the near future.
  • If a cat continually looks out a window on any day, rain is on the way.
  • Sailors believed that if a cat licked its fur against the grain it meant a hailstorm was coming; if it sneezed, rain was on the way; and if it was frisky, the wind would soon blow.
  • A German belief says that mistreating a cat can cause a rainstorm to occur on the clothes you’ve hung out to dry.
  • It was a popular belief that cats could start storms through magic stored in their tails – so sailors always made sure that they were well-fed and contented.
  • If a cat licks its fur in the opposite way that it naturally lies, there will be significant rain.
  • Alternatively, if the cat calmly and smoothly washes itself, expect fair weather.
  • Forgetting to feed your cat on your wedding day is an invitation to the rain.
  • To see a cat eating grass foretells rain.
  • Anyone who makes cats his enemy is certain to be accompanied to the grave with wind and rain.
  • If the cat tears of the cushions or carpet with its claws, it is a sign that wind is coming, as we say, “the cat is raising the wind“.
  • If cats are playing in the house and an unusually lively way, windy or stormy weather is approaching.
  • If the cat while washing its face draws its paw over its forehead it is a sign of good weather. If not, it means speedy rain.
  • Indonesians and Malays believe that if you wash your cat it will bring rain.

It seems that many of these symptoms cause rain.
