First Ever Catnado Hits UK, Felines Fly In Purrfect Storm

Global warming can be so funny sometimes!

Severe weather struck the UK last Sunday, causing severe flooding, leaving 13,000 customers without power, and lifting cats off the ground in a phenomenon that can only be called a “catnado.”

Shirley Blay, owner of The Blossom Stables in Chobham, England, recounted to the BBC what happened after a stable in her backyard was destroyed by the cat-aclysmic storm.

“We’ve got four feral cats in the yard and they were being lifted off the ground – about 6ft off the ground,” she told the BBC. “They just went round like a big paper bag.”

Says another Chobham resident, the cat-egory 1 twister was “like something out of a Steven Spielberg film.” (Note: Steven Spielberg did not direct Sharknado.)

Luckily, none of the cats caught up in the cyclone were harmed, although at press they were too busy licking themselves and looking haughty to comment.

Unfortunately no footage was taken of the insane incident, but it’s safe to assume it looked a little bit like this.

Severe and unusual weather patterns are on the rise, so we should brace ourselves for more of Mother Nature’s furry to come.
