Cats and dogs can not predict earthquakes. Seismological Society of America says that people have thought dogs and cats can predict earthquakes for many years. This was found to be false. Electrostatic charges in dogs and cats will result in potential shocks and for their fur to stand up. But, it does not give them the power to predict an earthquake. https://www.seismosoc.org/news/can-animals-predict-earthquakes/
This claim is false.
According to Seismological Society of America, their article "Can Animals Predict Earthquakes" states that it is difficult for this statement to be confirmed. This is due to the fact that most reports in relation to this claim are single observations. It is also taken into consideration that animals sense many changes in the environment. According to the article, Foreshocks and abnormal animal behavior strongly cluster together... suggesting that at least some of the behaviors may be related to physical phenomena from a seismic event already underway." There is not enough evidence to confirm that changes in behavior indicate earthquake predictions from animals such as cats and dogs.
