I think I have a ghostly cat story, at least we think it's a cat.
There have been several pets over the years in my childhood home. a couple of years ago, one of them, a dog called Muffin was getting really old and
infirm, and my mum and step dad knew he didn't have long to go. In the last few weeks of his life, they kept seeing out of the corner of their eye,
what they thought was an animal. They didn't feel it was a dog, more likely a large cat. Muffin's mum Bella had died a couple of years before, but
they didn't think it was her. They kept hearing it also in other rooms. They'd think it was Muffin moving about, but when they checked, he would be
asleep. Muffin passed away a few weeks after it all started and the 'visitations' stopped.
Now I just lost my mum a month ago to a terminal illness.
The odd thing is, and my sister only put two and two together recently, a couple of weeks before she died, she kept thinking that she had seen my
sister's cat out of the corner of her eye, when he hadn't even been in. We think that perhaps this ghostly animal who was around in Muffins last
days, maybe visited again for my mum's.
My step dad died a year before my mum, but we weren't aware of any presence then, but his death was sudden and unexpected, so maybe that was the
I should add that I'm in no way suggesting that this is in anyway linked to your experience more_serotonin_pls, it's just something that seems to
have happened in my family. I actually think I have the spirit of a cat of mine hanging around my house, I've caught him out of the corner of my eye
ohhh and another interesting thing to add, the cat that my sister has, adopted her and my mum. Rusty as my sister called him, turned up out of the
blue, and refused to leave. This was soon after my step dad died, and we've wondered if he was sent somehow as a companion to help them through.
