Today, as I was on the couch taking a nap, it started violently shaking. I panicked and chased my family outside, convinced it was an earthquake. It was just the cat trapped inside the couch. FML

You need someone to explain for you?

Cat in couch. Cat make couch shake. Human think shake earthquake. Humans run out.

How big a cat does OP have to make a couch with an adult sleeping on it shake violently enough to simulate a big earthquake? Seems a bit WTF to me - unless it's a tiger

The cat could've been by her head when it was shaking the couch. Also OP coulda been tired/woken up when it happened.

How in the world did the cat get in the couch?

I don't think I've laughed so violently at this imagine in a while..

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.

I had a cat that tore holes in the bottom of my sofa and bed and would burrow inside them. She was an odd little kitty. Luckily all of my furniture is second-hand and pretty shabby anyway, so I never cared.

Maybe you should have watched your cat a little bit more?

oh c'mon, cats wander to some cozy (or just seemingly cozy) places all the time! and besides, you cannot possibly keep an eye on everything constantly. It must have been hilarious moment for your family OP!

my cat can hide from our whole house hold for hours, not to mention op was asleep

Yes, let's all stay up all night and watch our pets because we have to watch them every second of our life's.

So just because the couch was shaking and not anything else meant there was an earthquake?

OP was taking a nap. Most people turn into complete morons when asleep.

People's logic tends to go out the window when they're asleep...

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.

As someone who has lived in ca all my life, from what I've experienced is that it's pointless to get up because they're usually over in a matter of seconds...

Well yeah. Considering he'd just woken up from a nap and was disoriented. Duh

Did you not see that the couch was the only thing shaking?

my first thought would be that the couch is possessed.

It is possessed, by a now very angry cat.

Cats can get in anything and then freak out when they can't get out.

You didn't feel that nothing else was shaking?

must be a big cat to make you think its and earthquake.
