In the 1930’s, there was a white tomcat named Napoleon living in Baltimore, Maryland. His owner, Mrs. de Shields, noted that every time it was about to rain Napoleon would lie on the floor, stretch out his front legs, and tuck his head down between them. During one particular year, there was a drought that had lasted for over a month, until one day Mrs. de Shields noticed Napoleon taking up his rain-approaching pose. However, according the official forecast, the weather wasn’t about to break. Mrs. de Shields put her trust in Napoleon and telephoned a newspaper, telling them that it was going to rain because her cat had predicted it. Lo and behold, it did rain! After that, Napoleon’s premonitions were published in the newspaper. In the six years that Napoleon made his predictions, he never got the weather wrong—a record envied by most human meteorologists.
