I am aware there are threads on problems with animals going crazy off and on. However in the 50+ years I have owned cats; Specifically Siamese I have never, ever experienced odd behavior. I have never had a mean Siamese though have had a few alley cats that were very unpredictable.
We own three cats. Two Siamese that are little more than slugs on the floor looking for constant attention, and an alley cat that really doesn't care much about anything but food, water and a clean box. The cats never, ever go outside.
All are very loving, never mean, and just want to be loved. But in the last two days there has been a very serious change in behavior. Not mean type, but rather they have become very very restless and not wanting to be out of the sight of a human at any time. If I go to the basement they sit at the door and scream, following me around the house everywhere I go. Odd for one cat but not unusual. But for all three this is very strange.
We are north of St Louis about 80 miles which puts us at the northern edge of the New Madrid Zone.
My question is has anyone else in this area or the area of New Madrid noticed any changes in their animals or even animals outside recently in this area.
My wife feeds humming birds which usually migrate at the middle of October, but they have been gone from here now for two weeks. Squirrels are eating the nuts off our Oak tree at a rush filling my entire front yard with shells. They seem not to be storing anything up. My yard must be raked before mowing. This has never happened here in the 30 years we have owned the house.
So the purpose for this post is to ask anyone who sees this: Has there been any unusual animal activity in your area around New Madrid. This is very concerning as our animals have never ever acted this way before.

Dude, I will be honest with you. Animals will always act up, no matter how long you've had them, something might have agitated them. It does not have to be a fault line ready to blow and kill us all. I live in the technical Madrid myself and nothing ever comes out of this. If I told you how many of these threads i've heard about somebody's dog barking, cat pawing their legs........etc. and they're sitting in the NW fault, oh #, I can just scream. Animals cannot tell you what their problem is but humans can.
We know, we know, we live on a fault line, we know. Just because your cat acts up doesn't mean, we're going to die tomorrow.edit on 30-9-2011 by Heartisblack because: (no reason given)

Very strange! I live up in ct. I have a Persian cat a once stray and a mini dog (-: they haven't been howling as yours do but I noticed the Persian is being extremely "talkative" latley with out good reason ( check up was clear, food, play time, petting nothing works) as for my wild cat I've had visitors comment on how she always has to gaurd the entrance to a room, just figured cats were pissed at me for having them shaved at beginning of summer....as for dog, if something is happening I am sure she's clueless..
I do remember at the beginning of summer staying up in Massachusetts near Boston and hearing the wild birds chirp and waking up at midnight for 2 or 3 nights running.......
I am going to DC soon and plan on going to zoo
....will get back To ya on how those critters are :-3
