Can cats predict earthquakes?

Japanese researchers investigate claims that animals can sense changes when ground is about to shake.

Scientists in Japan are investigating whether the behaviour of animals, including cats, fish and snakes, could be monitored to predict when an earthquake is about to happen.

They believe there is evidence to suggest animals can sense changes in the atmosphere when the ground is about to shake, although some experts in the field have questioned their claim.
