Animals Seeing Animal Spirits

Did my cats see the spirit of Sadie?

I wrote about animal spirits in a previous hub, and now I want to dedicate this one to my own experience.

No, I have not seen any animal spirits, but I believe my cats did, particularly my male, Cedric. And the spirit I believe was of my first cat that passed on.

Sadie was a beautiful Maine Coon who had to be put down in 2006, a few days before Halloween. After she passed, my other cats started to act weird. They would seem to stare intently at nothing that we could see. My family and I experienced a few weird episodes, especially with Cedric.

I did not witness the one incident, which my mom told me about. She said that she was in the living room with Cedric and decided to call out Sadie's name for no reason in particular. Suddenly, Cedric quickly turned around and stared with his big yellow eyes at one spot in the room, even though there was nothing there- at least that my mom could see.

However, I feel the incident that I did witness was a bit more extreme. I was also in the living room with Cedric, and out of nowhere he walked into the kitchen, went under the dinner table, and stopped at one of the chairs, staring up at it even though there was nothing there that could have interested him. Weird thing is, Sadie had liked to sleep on the kitchen chairs. After several seconds, he turned around and walked back from under the table as if nothing happened.

Animals are widely known to be very sensitive to their surroundings and can sense things that us humans are not able to pick up on, such as before a thunderstorm or earthquake hits. If they can sense a natural disaster hours before humans pick up on it, then how can we deny the possibility that animals can pick up on the paranormal world as well?

Perhaps next time you look into the eyes of your cat, dog, or even rabbit, ask yourself: What exactly are those eyes able to see that your eyes can't?

      Nell, I agree. It seems that animals definitely have some sort of sixth sense that we humans don't have- or at least not as great a form of it.

      Thanks for commenting!

      This was fascinating, I do totally believe in what you say, my brother had a cat years ago that would always stare at certain places in the room after his other cat died too! spooky! but yes I think animals can see so much more than we humans can, cheers nell

      Thanks. :) It might be that cats, as well as dogs and some other animals, have some type of sixth sense that many people don't have or just don't have it as strong.

      A blissful ride to a beauteous climax. I often wonder what it is that cats (espeically) see what humans don't. I guess we just have different mechanics. ^^
