Cat suddenly scared of everything?

My usually-bold cat is suddenly scared of everything (sudden movements, noises), and acting like he is seeing something that is not there.

He previously had struvite crystals in his bladder a few months ago which were removed with surgery, but recovered well. Are these two incidents related?
My only other explanation is that a huge earthquake is about to hit the Bay Area and this is my cat's way of warning me in vain. Calling my vet first thing tomorrow but just want to hear a few hypotheses to soothe my frayed nerves...! I couldn't play the pet version of WebMD because lots of people have cats that are scared all the time or during stressful events like moving, rather than an acute development of fright.
