Nice - or you could determine using the condition of the tail :

If it is wet - it is raining.
If it is dry - it is not raining - perhaps sunny.
If it is moving a lot - it is windy.
If it is blue - it is cold - perhaps snowing.

My grandmother's barometer looked like a swan:



It wasn't very precise, but it was easy enough to tell whether the air pressure was higher or lower than normal by whether the water in the neck was higher or lower than that in the body.

Would be even more clever (but less arty) if it peed when its raining.

Yeah, I have a ten year old kid, and yeah, his sense of humor is rubbing off on me.

Tabby the Terrible isn't a tabby, but the first mate is?

1 Open window
2: Hold cat outside window
3: After a few minutes, bring cat back inside. If it's fur it wet, then its raining
4: Apply bandages to the numerous flesh wounds inflicted by the angry cat

Now watch these 3 cats very closely - or you will miss it.
