Hello people,
Recently I have started seeing numerous ghost cats in my house. I don't mean a vaguely transparent cat sitting in front of me though, I'm talking about seeing one walk past out of the corner of my eye, running across the hall in front of me and things like that. Sometimes, plants are even knocked over in the night.
It's not scary at all, just strange. it's a newish house so I'm the only person to have ever lived there and my cat died about 5 years ago. It could be her, but I'm not sure.
Essentially, what I'm wondering is does anyone else have any experience of dead pets in their house, and why I can see (sort of) the animal ghosts but not any human ones?

Anyone got any ideas?

No ideas besides get a camera!
Get evidence of this phenomenon and post it here. That would be a great addition to your story.
Cant wait to see the replies!

I'll give it a go over the weekend. I doubt I'll pick anything up though, because it's always out of the corner of my eye, if you know what I mean.
There is nothing I'd love more than to video a ghostly cat in my house, but unfortunately I doubt anything will appear on camera, and secondly, I'm reluctant to have 'hoaxer' screamed at me.

I was really just looking to see if any others have similar experiences.

Thanks for your response though, and I will give it go.

100% the same as you here,

I see them all the time, I'm always catching glimpses and its almost become a joke in my house,

I'm not sure why you would see this, Do you think they are you own past cats?

Or just Random ones?

I have heard there's a good book to read

Animal Ghosts By Raymond Bayless may be worth seeing if there's anything online about it,

Also you say your own cat died along time ago, From what I have read most cat ghosts can take along time to come forward, So it could well be yours,

Keep a log of what and where you see it, You may see a pattern,
also randomly take snaps, you never know what you might find on camera,

I find it comforting to at least think our pets are still around somewhere,

It's strange the way it is always 'glimpses' isn't it?
I have a feeling that it's my old persian, Ellie. I don't really know why I think that - I think it may be because she was so playful and I feel that the way the 'ghost' behaves is quite playful as well.

I'm gonna go have a look on Amazon for that book, so thanks for the recommendation. I'll let you know what it's like.

Keeping a log is a good idea too. I'd never thought of that, then again I'm not the most organised person in the world, so it doesn't surprise me.

Spirit pets.
Five years ago in my previous home we had a sky blue budgerigar we named 'Sky'.
He was a real character and blessed with an uncanny human like spirit.
He was rarely caged and roamed freely.
One of his attributes was to land on my head and attempt to pluck my eyebrows. His talons had a distinctly sharp grip for such a light bird.
His lifespan was sadly quite short and he died from sour crop.
I made him a coffin and he was buried in the garden.
Within days I began to feel a presence in the lounge and heard a fluttering sound.
I sat down in my favourite chair and within minutes that familiar sensation of sharp 'paddling' talons on my head was all to familiar.
My wife knew nothing of my experience but within days she did report that
she heard the fluttering of wings and felt that something had landed on her shoulder.
Maybe animal spirits can remain in a state of limbo until they pass over?
Either way it's an interesting topic .

My cat, Boris, was an american maine coone and had the greatest personality of any cat I had ever owned. He was 17 when he died 2.5 years ago and I still grieve his passing away from old age. I keep his ashes in a jar next to my other cat, Baby.
From time to time I am awakened in the night by a kneading cat on my stomach. I'd reach down in my sleep to pet my cat and i'd feel his big maine coone head and the way he would bite my fingers. The sudden realization that he died would awaken me completely only to catch a glimpse of a cat shadow leaving the room the way he did. This happens to me about once to twice a month.
Funny how our pets become so important to us that we relate to them as if they were humans. That's the way I always think about mine. I know that cats can dream, mourn the loss of others and basically be like a smaller human verson in most respects. Maybe it's possible they stick around longer than we realize.

It's so good to hear that I'm not alone on this one. Perhaps others can post their experiences of pets that have passed. I've kinda got a feeling that's it's all to do with emotional attachment, but I still find it strange that these events happen when I'm not even thinking about her. If it always happened when I was thinking about her, I'd be thinking it was all in my head, but now I'm really not sure what to think.

Your not alone at all -- you got us! Seriously, from one cat lover to another, I understand where you are coming from. The subject of "cat ghosts" has always held a fascination with me for many years and especially due to my personal experiences.

Great to find a thread with some cat lovers on it! I had an experience with a potential cat ghost when I was a child. Our 19 year old cat had recently passed; and for several months I experienced sightings of him in various parts of the house and the yard. It was a little spooky, however, I actually looked forward to seeing him again and again.

Presently, I am the proud owner of a 17 year old long haired cat. Every night he crawls up on the bed and sits on my chest and demands his evening rub down. After reading Carnival's post....I sincerely hope that after he passes on, I will get to experience his nighttime visits once in a while!

I have a big, fat 12 year old Tabby, but that is not the cat I see in my house sometimes, which is a small and light gray, an older kitten perhaps. And sometimes when my Tabby starts running wild and playing with nothing, I wonder if he sees it too.

I've seen this small gray one on and off for 7 or 8 years and I've never owned a cat like that. I personally think it follows my husband because I began seeing it after we started dating. It's pretty cool, though, and doesn't scare me a bit.

I have something similar happen often. I work at a rehab center for birds of prey... and sometimes, although I don't physically see them, I do sense their presences, often not too long after they've passed over. Sometimes they stay around, and sometimes they don't.

And I do have a way with birds. Always have.

Hi, When I first saw this post I thought it was one of my inlaws. Ever since we moved into this old house built in the 20s my wife and her kids by her first marriage have had experiances in our guest bedroom. While they have not seen anything with thier eyes they swear that while sitting or laying on the bed they feel something jump up on the bed that is light enough they call it a ghost cat. We have had other things happen in the house but that is another subject.

Cool! There's somebody else who has a long last feline in their house besides me! I had a cat die 3 years ago, and we buried it in our backyard. Now my mischeivous cat walks around the basement every night. He spooked me at first but I want to get to know him better.

I have a ghost cat, that scratches claws on the chair and couch.
You can HEAR it clearly, and you can FEEL the moving of the apolstery back and forth...........many people have experienced this in my house.
I currently DO have a cat but he only scratches other places.....I can have him in my lap and the ghost cat will be scratching the couch and people will say whats this other cat?????
Then I have to explain its a ghost.

Now 2 weeks ago I got a brand new couch, and since then my son and I have not experienced the ghost cat scratching on it at all.............that older couch was the couch the old cat used and he passed away 6 years ago.......and as long as we had that couch he still scratched on it.
We are actually MISSING our chost cat he was such a unique pet >'.'<

My son and I are wondering if the folks we gave the old couch to have the ghost cat now?
cuz he really seems to be gone now that we have this new couch.....we miss him.
We NEVER did ever SEE him...but he made his presence known.

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 difference.

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 before.

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.

Heres my cat story.....enjoy

My friend and I just went to investigate a house where the daughter of the family was shot by the dad and when we were outside by the back screen door we heard a bang and looked over to see a cat staring back at us. At first we thought it was real, but after considering how healthy it looked for living inside a ten-year-abandoned house and remembered the mother had a cat that died before she moved out, we didn't know what to think.
We stared at the cat for about to minutes and then heard a loud clank behind us. When we looked back the cat was gone. It reappeared later outside of the locked house only to randomly appear and disappear for the rest of the night.

We heard some pretty creepy noises and caught some stuff on camera (no pics of the cat though) before we left....

Thanks for sharing all of these folks. It's fantastic to read about something which I don't think gets anywhere near enough attention.
I've been crazy busy this weekend with work stuff so haven't had a chance to set up any cameras around the house. I will though.
Gonna go back and have a proper reread of the posts I haven't looked at properly because of the weekend.

Thanks again guys and gals.

I have experience of both animals and humans. My dear departed animals pop by on a regular basis. I see two of them often and I hear others in particular running around up stairs and jumping on the table.

When I am in the house on my own their presence is more accute. I also believe we are relearning how to see beyond our 3D world and this is why we sometimes see out of the corner of our 'eye'. Animals in particular cats are extremely psychic this is why they come to us.

I have my father-in-law around on a regular basis. My husband has sighted his Dad a couple of times.

Take this however you like but i have seen ghost fish actually swimming in the corner's of my house and all over the wall's. They always move in an independent manner and it has always been at night.

The fish are those that i have owned. And they have passed away. Sometimes they all come together sometimes different group's BUT...

What i am thinking at this moment in time is this is some form of mental screen that my mind used to keep me calm. What was actually there was much more in the unknown zone so to speak.
