We welcome back guest blogger Mel Dawn with another Frightful Friday installment. This time about ghost cats. If you like it, be sure to let her know with a comment or a like. Thanks!
Many cat owners don’t like to confess that they’re seeing things after Fluffy is gone, but could it be that the cat came back?
A couple of weeks after Cristobel my tabby cat died in 2009, I could have sworn I saw her by the side of my bed. Once I shook myself awake I realized I must have been dreaming. Yet many cat owners claim that they see signs that their cats are still with them.
Remember that old memorial poem by Henry Scott Holland, which states “Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room.”
Can it be that our deceased cats are still here, but simply waiting for us in the next room? I have heard a cat meowing in the next room over, yet that cannot be possible, as it’s a shared hallway between my neighbours.
Former cat owners have noted the feeling of having tiny feet walking over their legs, or the feeling of something jumping up on the bed. Some people may feel the bedding being moved.
Many others may have seen brief flashes of fur from the corners of their eyes. Some people may even have filmed strange visitations with their video camera, or had cat-shaped orbs on their photographs.
Did my cat come back, or was I merely imagining things? One thing’s for certain, let’s hope that my cat has a long wait before I enter her room.
