Why do cats stare at walls?


We've had a few cats that do this, for hours sometimes- just sit there staring or following something along the wall(s) with their line of sight we can't see at all. Does anyone have an idea why a cat does this or what, possibly, their eyes detect that a pair of human eyes don't?

    I have to agree with you about ghost cats. My cats (both of them) stare into the top left corner of the bathroom and, they also look at the same place from the bedroom beside the bathroom. The walls are solid steel-reinforced concrete so not mice.
