Feral cats get freaked out by the wind

Mini Scaredy is slightly freaking out this morning. There are strong winds whipping the trees back and forth and making weird sounds all across the woods. Feral cats are programmed to react to any unusual sound or movement as a potentially life-threatening attack. So her metabolism is constantly signaling, “DANGER! DANGER! DANGER!” Her head keeps whipping back and forth in the direction of every new sound, her mind trying to figure out what it is. . . I try to reassure her, “There there, it’s just wind.” Like a mother trying to console her baby about monsters lurking in the dark. Cats.
