OP Captain is pushing 25 lbs. he's a big cat. And is very violent when he's scared. Also he likes to hide in odd places. So the recling couch is his favorite fort. The rest of you, I'm Not explaining shit. I

If it's a recliner, there's a lot of empty space underneath the couch to make room for the reclining mechanism. Cats can squeeze into very tight spaces, and they sometimes climb up in there. If you have a cat and a recliner it's important not to recline your couch too quickly, so the cat can have time to get out before he gets caught in the mechanism. I had a kitten that that happened to once. She was okay, but her scream was horrifying.
So just because the couch was shaking and not anything else meant there was an earthquake?
Maybe it's because I've lived in Southern California most of my life, and I've been through many major and minor earthquakes, but earthquakes don't feel (or sound) like shaking furniture. That's why OP's reaction is so funny to me. Most Californians wouldn't even bother to get off the sofa.
