Aaaaw beautiful kitty
before having any cats my partner would often say they didnt have any personality.. he just didnt get it lol.. until we started living together, and a house isnt a home without feline companions imo! so he gave in to having one, quickly coming to realize they are like snow flakes, no two are ever the same! Thats adorable about him slink dancing.. he sounds lovely.. and also sounds like he (as i am sure all cats are) is very in tune to the energies of the humans around him..

I definately believe cats can sense and see (and maybe "feel") energies and/or unseen entities. That way they suddenly crouch down and stare at a space intently--even cautiously-- always make me say "Whats there? What do you see?" Usually I just get a quick glance from them and then they are back to their "watch".
I so wish I knew what was going on in their heads. Sometimes I think I get a hint, but then again I could just be whack-a-doo.


BTW Natira is sweet looking

I have four cats and love them all dearly. Three came from the local animal rescue and one wandered up on my porch about six years ago. Its funny because I did not grow up with any cats in the house but a huge German Shepard/ Collie mix that always slept with me as a kid.
I love dogs too but do not currently own any. I will some day. One of my cats loves to watch Beverly Hill Chihuahua. I turned it on one time and she literally sat down in front of the TV and watched it for like a half and hour. She did it again on another time when I turned it on just to see if she would watch it.

lol..tooo cute..
I cant remember what thread it was on now, but not long ago someone posted a video clip of a small yippie dog type, and Natira went crazy.. trying to find it behind the computer monitor lol..

I am sure that her and my other cat, Jack, see Zoe (Jacks mother) and another kitten who sadly died shortly after Zoe did, a lot..they will stop completely whatever they are doing sometimes and follow with their eyes something moving across the room..when to my eyes it was 'obvious' nothing there for them to be watching..

I agree, cats sense things.. far beyond our comprehension at this time i think.. and also often wonder what is going on inside their minds! i have a feeling its a facinating place!

is it true that cats can see in ultra violet? or infra red? hmm well either spectrum is pretty amazing since we only see white light. and they presumably see ours as well as whatever extra they can see. i saw a documentary ages ago where they had a cats brain hooked up to a computer and they were mapping the cats brain in real time. On the monitor they could see what the cat was seeing in real time. it was pretty impressive technology. i'll see if i can find a utube video of it.

Love your cat, I bet he's a talker. I have Siamese DSH mixes, which are my favs and especially Siamese and Orientals, wedge faces and extreme talkers.

One of my mixes has light blue eyes, lynx point. My other is a tortie.

Thanks for posting, great info
As a cat lover, owner and Vet Tech, I find any and all animal info useful.
In the Veterinary world, cats are almost an anomaly because of how they heal so fast.

Winged Cats are documented:
The condition that a Winged Cat may have is Cutaneous Asthenia meaning "weak skin"... MessyBeast.com

Very nice..as an arachniphobe, would you think my cats will save me from the spider population? hardly lol, they just watch them crawl across the floor or wall with vague interest..that would probably change were they a danger, but i dont think we have any poisionous types in our area..

LOL i agree with the child part, a friend of mine has a one year old, hes adorable and i love him, but i love him so much more because i can just hand him back to his parents!! And yeah, the Monsanto topic i am sure has been discussed around here at ATS at length but it never hurts to remind people how evil the stuff is!

That video is excellent! thank you for sharing it here, i always thought it would be very interesting to see like a cat does, what all they are able to tune into or just pick up on.. hell its an interesting thought of what we as humans would be able to see were we able to see in other spectrums than white light.. i have a feeling it would be a huge other world..

Siamese cats are beautiful creatures.. and very chatty lol.. my first cat when i lived at home, i was about 12 when i got him, and he was part Siamese, he always used to wander around the house just talking to anyone who would listen i think! especially 2-3 am lol Thats also very interesting that they are seen as anomoly in healing, i always believed it had to do with their saliva that aids them well?

Hi,

So, I am an enthusiastic cat lover!!! Well animal lover, but I LOVE, LOVE, Love kitties!
I have converted the most die hard cat haters into cat lovers and owners

Even one friend who was absolutely TERRIFIED of them, due to her mother instilling odd ideas about cats being able to kill you?
She now loves them

Anyway, I have been a cat owner all of my life, as I come from a home of cat lovers as well.
I currently own three and will be gaining a forth very soon.

I did want to say that I have had odd paranormal experiences with cats.

The most recent was when one of my cats Piggy died a year ago, he was 14 and had cancer..

He died in my arms at home.

After this I had many dreams about him being by my side in bed and in one of them my friend who had died a year prior from stomach cancer at the age of 37 came and yelled at me (such was her way
that I had to let him go; that I was keeping him with me and that he needed to be set free.

I knew she was right, even though I thought I had let him go, I thought she must know better? I saw him go with her, her 18yr old cat cleo, off too, I am sure a wonderful place



I do miss him though, but have not had a dream since!

I think that cats can see that which we cannot, our perceptual abilities are very limited to the point in fact that we do fill ins when we are looking at something; we never actually behold a whole scene, but our mind fills in the visual gaps!
Not to mention the light spectrum, again our processing capabilities are very limited, a cat can see beyond human range!


They are, as are many animals, magical


I always find it odd when people state that when animals die they just die!
I feel that if there be a God, universal consciousness, whatever you want to call it, it specifically sent these animals here to help us, they are or would then be little angels to us. Why then would they simple cease to be?

Just a thought

Best,
Amy

I have a 6 years old female cat nammed Zelda. Funniest part is that she loves nobody but me : we live together in my (first time I wrote our, that tells everything !) flat, and whenever someone comes, she either hides or attacks. Funniest part is when some girl comes to my place. She allways sneaks up and starts rubbing her head on the girl's leg. I warn her : be careful, she won't like you. Zelda keeps rubbing her head, the girl just tells me that she doesn't belive me, she takes Zelda in her arms who then scratches her in the face !
Every effing time it works ! Well, not with boys, only with girls : she must be jealous. I think she cursed me so that I don't get any girlfriend.

Also, she doesn't seem to be affraid by my "spiritually aware" friends, if you get what I mean.

Also, here is a funny story I heard the other day on TV. A familly lived with a cat who usually wandered around the garden and the neighbourhood. Someday, they eventually moved to another city who was a few hundred miles from their place. But, on the day they had to go, the cat was nowhere to be found ! After waiting a hour and a half, they decided to go and adopt another cat in their new home.
A year or so passed.
And, someday, the children, playing in the garden, saw a cat heading towards them. Yes, you got it : it was their cat ! He had lost weight, but still, he managed to find out where they lived. And nobody has found any explanation about this story, since there is no way the cat could have smelled them from so far away and after so many time has passed. But actually, this does not surprise me when coming from a cat. I mean, dogs stick to their masters because their instinct tells them to do so, while cats, who are solitary animals, just stick with their humans (it's not their masters, but I guess you're aware of it) just for the sake of love.

Have you heard about Oscar, the cat who has predicted over 50 deaths so far? It's amazing.

I've always had cats in my life and I couldn't imagine being cat-less. I think my affinity for cats really started when I was 10 and the pregnant cat we had gave birth to a litter of six kittens and then died suddenly. We bottle fed them and they grew up to be very healthy, but the last of the six just recently passed away this past year. I had a cat that was very fond of the cupboards underneath the bathroom sink that passed away a few years ago, every time I go to the bathroom I look down there for him. I saw him in a dream shortly after he passed. I was sitting on the ground and he came to sit next to me, then he looked up and disappeared, it was really what I needed to put me at ease.

This is a great thread!


I love cats. I have two black cats, Jet and Shadow (original names I know). Upon moving into an apartment, I was forced to send them to live with my mum down the road. It's funny just how much you miss their presence when they're not around. (I compensate by visiting 3-4 times per week!)

They're amazing creatures, with incredible personalities. Jet, the female of the two, spends much of her time staring into space. Curiously, her gaze is often directed towards areas in the house where paranormal activity has in the past occurred. It's actually quite eerie at times as she completely phases out and is totally unresponsive.

There's definitely some extrasensory perception at work with cats.

Hello
its wonderful to speak to so many cat lovers here! The dream that you mentioned is very interesting, with your friend also involved in the dream.. After my beautiful female cat, Zoe passed on she came into my dreams a couple of times, almost like she was reasuring me that she was ok and knew what had happened.. (she was hit by a car and i was worried she may have still been around the house not knowing what happened and wondering why i was ignoring her) and i also worried she was 'trapped' so to say as i still feel her around..often.. but then again, i would think cats (and all animal life really) understand a great deal more about that side of things that they arent telling us!...

A paranormal story of my own to share happened when i was 16-17, back in NY when i was living with my parents..we had 3 cats then, one being the Siamese cross breed Sebation who was my first kitty..a friend at the time was at the house and in a bad way, he had been dabbling with some magicks and something had gone wrong.. while he was asleep in the spare room, all 3 cats remained inside, one at his door, one at mine, and the other roaming between the front and back doors to the house.. obviously very aware of something..someone.. i dont know.. they were all at full attention so to say, and Sebation was always a very sensitive cat, so he was extremely jumpy but alert.. this went on all night with occasional hissing from him..by morning everything had gone, my friends problem, and the energies in the house, the cats continued on like normal.. but ever since i really have regarded them as protectors ..watchers even in some cases..

The winged cat information i am finding is facinating! I will share some info here when i return in a couple of hours..

Oscar the cat.. I think i know the one you mean, he lived at a nursing home right? and would go to curl up with the person that was soon to die, or sleep outside of their door? could be a different cat, but thats what came to mind..

Winston thanks you! Yes he is a big talker.. lol! He has an incredible vocabulary.


I have Siamese DSH mixes, which are my favs and especially Siamese and Orientals, wedge faces and extreme talkers.



They are my faves too!

One thing I find amazing about Winston is that I can have some random thought about him.. and bang... there he is out of nowhere. It's like he's sent a thought of himself to me to ahead of time to herald his arrival... lol.

And as fortune would have it, he's just woken up and walked over to me now. I'm sure he knew I was typing this. He is now on my lap, purring loudly.

*shakes head in disbelief and reaches for the tin foil hat*

When my cat Holli died in 2002, I was worried that her littermate, Belle, would pine away without a companion so I adopted the kitten of a stray that an acquaintance had been feeding.

The first night, I had a dream that I looked under my bed and Holli was sniffing Becca's head (the new kitten) and then purring. I didn't dream of Holli again, but felt that it had been letting me know that she approved of the new companion I'd gotten for her sister.

I know you-all are cat lovers and what I am about to say may ruffle your fur a bit.
I have read about and seen first hand the UNIMAGINABLE---- CAT LADY syndrome way to often.
So often and so wide spread it makes me squirm.
I am not saying there aren't cat men as well but I have never heard of one.
What is with these folks that contribute to 200 and some live cats and their crap and an additional
80 or so in the trash barrels. (Northern Virginia)? How can this happen?

I remember reading somewhere that the Egyptians believed people who were powerful or famous in life would be reborn as cats, and because of that reason they respected cats so greatly. I think there might be some merit to that, what would be a better reward than to be reborn as a beastly little ninja? I got a kitten two months ago and I've been loving every second I've been having with her. She's wonderful to have around. I also find it really funny to compare what a kitten at 2 months old can do(run around like a slick ninja) and what a baby human at 2 months old can do(nothing!)

That isn't what this thread is about. One can't help feel that you are simply trolling for some attention. Why not start a thread on it elsewhere?
