Cats on Tuesday--Painted Anela
There has been an large earthquake swarm one island over from where I live--on the Big Island (Hawaii). Magma is on the move under the surface of Kilauea Volcano. The authorities have closed the roads going to the Volcano Park because of the danger.
The last big earthquake on the Big Island impacted us on our island on Maui with earthquake damage, so I'm praying the volcano settles down. As an act of propitiation to the Volcano Goddess of the Islands, Pele, I have painted Anela in volcano colors. Doesn't she look stunning?
I don't know how well cats serve as earthquake detectors--I've read that geese and snakes are. However, if I see Anela hightailing it out of here, I will be right behind her!
