Just for the Record - Kitties don't Like Earthquakes

Yesterday we experienced an unusual east coast earthquake.  Having lived in CA for several years in my younger days - this was not something to get all that hopped up about.  Emma seemed to be fine with the whole happening.  Clooney and Nigel slept through the whole event.  Kitties - now there is another story - they did not care for said earthquake AT ALL.  All four of them happened to be snoozing on the bed as it hit - they assumed that panicked cat stance - you know the one with all four legs spread apart and the deer in headlights look?

They were very uncomfortable.  Interestingly - earthquakes are so rare here that I assumed the washer was out of balance or some other explanation - never really crossed my mind it could be an earthquake.  It wasn't til I saw my neighbor at the mail box and she asked if the house just shook.  Huh - who knew?
