Cats have strong intuition and senses. Because of that, sometimes they are even able to sense things (good or bad) long before we can.
Cats are very gifted when it comes to reading people and their emotions. Although they don’t speak our language, they often understand what is going on.
Another way that cats might react to something negative is by hiding. They will hide if they’re scared of something, perhaps a person or something from their environment.
Some cats might start running and jumping around the house, and will probably break anything in their way, when they sense a bad energy.
