That's interesting. For the past couple of months, perhaps years (I'll clarify later), I've been seeing cats in my house...not 'real' cats,
but...uuuuh..ghost cats. I know, I know; "Pics or it didn't happen". And I'll admit, it sounds silly.
I'm not here to try to convince anyone as to whether or not 'ghost' exist, I can only offer my anecdotal view of what happened. I simply cannot
fathom a scientific explanation for it, nor would I even try because I'd just be guessing, so I'd undoubtedly loose a debate on the topic.
Having said that...here we go with the cat thing...
Just a few weeks ago, maybe a month, I followed this apparition in broad daylight for almost a minute around the house...going from room to room. It
began as a white semi-transparent apparition and was CLEARLY a cat; tail up in the air just plodding along in no hurry what so ever. As I followed
this 'ghost' around the house, it was becoming less and less visible. After about a minute or so, I could no longer make it out.
Maybe a month or 2 ago, I was coming out of the bathroom after brushing my teeth before bed, and as I opened the door into the hall, I saw a cat just
sitting there looking at me, maybe 4 feet in front on me. My finger was already on the light switch and by sheer reflex, I turned off the light, but
immediately turned it back on to find nothing there. I know, typical, right...?
Just this past Tuesday night (Aug. 6, 2013) while watching TV, I looked down to see the camcorder bag sitting on the floor, but the strap of the bag
up in the air, probably 15-18 inches off the floor, flopping around, or more precisely, similar to how folks wave a little novelty patriotic flag back
and forth. After about maybe 5 -6 seconds, it just dropped back to the floor.
So, what I wanted to clarify was, for easily 2-3 years, I'd see objects move right before my very eyes. On two occasions, others saw this movement
the same time I did. On every occasion, the object would 'spin'.
1. Roughly 2 yrs ago, I sat down in a chair at my home that was facing a friend of mine who was already seated. The table that was between us had
metal files on them. ( I dabble in electronics and once in a while, need to file some solder spots..) anywho...as I sat down, this one file, probably
10 inches long, began to spin on the table like the hand of a clock, just a lot faster. Like, one full revolution took about 1/2 of a second...maybe
slightly faster. It spun for perhaps 3 seconds. Both myself and my friend in front of me saw this. He obviously freaked out. (this one gets weirder,
but I'll stop there for now...)
2. About 3 yrs ago, myself and my 6yr old son were talking in the kitchen when a cooking pot, 8 inches in dia, 5 inch tall, began spinning on the
counter right next to where we were standing. It did 3-4 full revolutions before stopping very abruptly. Both myself and my son saw this.
3. Again about 3 yrs ago, I was doing some tidying up in the basement when I paused to ponder on what I should do with this GIANT mess I was facing. I
was basically just staring at the vice on my work bench when it began spinning in the tightening direction (clockwise). It did (like the pot, if it
really means anything), 3-4 full revolutions before stopping. Unfortunately, no one was there to see this one...
Other things happened but again, I was alone. So I won't bother mentioning those because I potentially could just simply be out of my mind.
So, after seeing the "cat", and assuming that cats like to play and spin stuff, I'm guessing that it was "the cat" all along. So, evidently, I
have a pet who costs me nothing to feed and I NEVER need to clean out a litter box!!!
