So sorry your kitty is so poorly, I had to have our old cat euthanized just over 3 weeks ago....he adopted us when he was about 3, and lived with us
for 10 years, and I miss him so much. He was our guard cat! he would sit on the doormat, guard the gate, and for 10 years he would walk me up the
road, lovely old boy he was!
So I lost him 3 weeks ago, and I lost another cat to congenital heart failure when she was only 5 years old- that was 17 months ago.
I never saw my female cat after she passed, a few times I heard her jump off the bed, but it is another matter with my old male cat! I have felt him
jump onto the bed, at least a few times a week. I have felt him laying by my feet, I go to turn over and the quilt has something on it....I go to
look but there is nothing there. Then last week, I sat on the bottom stair, and on the first landing (4 stairs up) I saw his feet....I swear I
really did, his huge white paws. It was like a 3D transluscent image, but I could see the exact shape of them (and after 10 years of him living here,
I'd know those paws anywhere!). Im not sure why I couldnt see the rest of his body, but then...he started purring...really loudly 4 times. I was
amazed, in awe, and a little scared at the same time. I was happy to see him, but this is the first ghost pet I've ever actually 'seen'.
I hope this gives you some comfort, some people say they come to visit before they cross over...but other people say they can come and visit us
whenever they want to.
After he died, about a week later, I decided to look to adopt a kitten. I had a dream, and in it, my cat said to me, 'Don't look for a kitten, I'll
come back, I'll find you...' lol!!! That sounds crazy I know....but ALL my cats over the past 17 years have found me, wandered into my garden as
strays, and I've put notices/had them scanned for microchips etc, then let them stay if no one came forward to claim them.....so I expected that a
kitten would find its way here again!!! Then, a neighbour knocked, and said a kitten had been born and did I want it in 9 weeks time....well....what
do you know, it is black and white like my cat...and was born just after he died.
Do cats come back?
Yes, I really think in a way they do!!!
As a footnote, sadly I have never seen anyone I know has passed, but had visitations from complete strangers. I don't understand that at all, even a
friend that knew she was dying, promised she would come and visit me, but 12 years later she still hasnt.
