I'm not sure where to post this. But I need to talk about it. I saw him today. I was going into my kitchen and saw my now only cat look at me and run into my room. I got his food dish and followed him. He wasn't in my room. I kinda knew where to go next. Boo was sleeping on my couch last I saw him... And there he was still sleeping. Ive seen this cat 10+ times in the last 2 years. I did lose a dark cat 8 years ago. I've felt a wet nose on my leg.. My pants rubbed against. I heard a hiss in the middle of the night when both my cats were asleep. i felt a cat walking behind me on the couch.... No cat. I saw a tail from my bathroom mirror walk into bathroom... No cat. of course if I'm just losing my mind I'd think I'd see other things. I have seen/experienced a few human spirits so I'm not sure if I'm seeing what some might not. My friend wants to have me believe it's evil. I never feel scared.. Except maybe the first time. In middle of the night I heard my 2 cats fighting. when I got up I felt very nervous about seeing what wss wrong. 1 cat ran into my bathroom... When I opened the door... No cat. both were found elsewhere. I guess I want to know if anyone else has experienced this. Thanks.

I wish I had a ghost cat, but nope, I've never had a ghost cat, only human ones.
Feeling startled is normal, but trust your intuition. If you don't sense "evil", then it's not. Honestly, if it were me, I would probably name him or her and try talking to it.:p
I was looked in on every night before going to bed by three "human shapes" when I was a child, never felt scared of them in the least. We also ended up with an old man entity when we moved to a new home...and I didn't like him. He made me feel scared, but as I grew up I kept telling him to knock it off and quit pestering me. He also terrorized my cat at the time, which really pissed me off. We had a friend of the family who was......special.....and she got rid of him. This house also had a young child for a while (after the old man was gone), but for whatever reason he only stuck around for a few years...then nothing. I wonder if he became more active because the mean old guy was gone??? The young boy would always just run and giggle.
I do feel the presence of my cats who've passed away, but never really "see" them...sometimes just a flash out of the corner of my eye kinda thing. Sometimes it would make me feel sad, but mostly it feels nice to know they pop in every once in a while.
What does ghost cat look like? Is it always the same cat?

If you don’t feel it is evil then it probably isn’t. Plus in my experience cats keep the evil ones away. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Could it be a stray cat? Or a ghost cat? I don’t see ghost but I did see a shadow bobcat walk on the wall once. Weirdly enough 2 other people have seen the shadow cat over a decade apart! (Without knowing the I saw a shadow cat story! The described the same cat!) Something about that house came with a bad presence I did my best to avoid. No idea but that 1 room has always had a cold unwelcoming feeling & I saw a shadow person in that room once. Luckily I moved but my mom still has that house. So I’m not doubting it could be a ghost cat I have just never heard of one before in a solid presence. That might be dangerous. Just in case do you have any Wiccan friends that can do cleansing on your house? For me I refused to acknowledge the shadows or think of things I found funny & more importantly kept cats with me when in that room.

After Sarah was put to sleep my mom & I always felt like she was nearby. It wasn’t a visual just the sense that she was in the other room waiting for us to call her. That lasted for about 6 months and then one day she was just gone. I think she left because my mom was finally ready to let her go. Then again I think she might have sent the minions. Knowing a single cat could not fill the hole she left in my mom’s heart, she sent her 2 kittens (& a trouble maker kitten for me.)

Sarah was a bottle baby I raised from 10 days old.She was my mom’s cat & well she called her our sister. To say my mom loved her was an understatement! Sarah lived to be 20 years old. I still miss my baby girl a bit.

Wow! That would be terrifying to me. Glad you were able to live with them. I only saw spirits in places not mine. Although weird things did happen at home whenever i was watching too many ghost hunter type shows and when i stopped so would weird things. I swear to you i wasn't just imaging either.
So this cat looks just like my living black cat. That's why i follow him because i think its boo. Very solid. Other times i just hear/feel physical type things.. But no cat. My dog and at the time 2 catz all heard a toy being played with... Twice within a minute. When i got the nerve to check... No toy had fallen off cat tree. Max died in my room 8 years ago... A dark striped cat. I can only hope its him. As nothing like this happened while he was here.

where.
20 years?? Sorry for your loss. I lost my 17 year old tigger in dec. I still have some things exactly where he left them. Still too painful. He was sick.. But i didn't know i world be putting him down and thought for sure he'd be coming home with me.
Anyway... I actually do kniw someone who at least used to be wiccan... But doesn't live near me.
I use sage... Really to help a little with anxiety. To be honest.. I don't want to make this "cat" leave. Unless it is evil... That is what im worried about. However.. Im always glad to see. Feel him. This kind of stuff weirds me out for sure.. It just isn't right. :) but... I kind if feel like... "Ok.. Whatever" instead of flipping out which seems like more of how i think i SHOULD react. :)
Thanks for responding

I don't know how a cat could be 'evil', anything would have to commit evil acts to be that. Cats are animals and innocent of consciously committing evil acts. You have to have intent to do wrong.
I sometimes see a cat in my peripheral vision, just a flash, and not really visible to determine color, etc. But I have had so many die in my lifetime it would be really hard to determine which one, or even a stranger. When my Chrissy died, I found one (just one) of her distinctive ringed hairs on my vanity top each morning for months to greet me. Then they stopped. When my Burt died, a grey and white tiny kitten that looked just like him showed up to eat in our backyard. It was eerie. I had never seen another grey and white cat in that neighborhood and haven't since.
I think you are just more sensitive than most and are receptive enough to let things in like this. I grew up with a ghost in the house and thought (and still do) it was perfectly normal to hear someone walking at night and moving things. Beautiful glass antiques showed up too in that house, hidden and unveiled in dreams my sister had. I still have the 6 tiny beautiful green glass candy baskets and a very ornate black cast wall candle holder. Evil dead things can be banished, just tell them never to enter your house again and to leave. Living beings are much stronger. Don't ever think you are alone on things like this, the unbelievers just make you ashamed to tell your story and to doubt yourself. it will take a sighting to change them, but a negative spirit can hold things like this at bay.

The apartment my ex and I lived in in California had a ghost cat. We knew it for sure one night because we would close our boy out of the bedroom when we were intimate. After, we felt a cat jump on the bed and rub our feet. We looked to the closed door to see if Felix had gotten in somehow and saw his little orange and white paw swiping under the door. He was on only cat at that time. I never saw him, but felt him many times.

Wow... When I was small, I used to see 3 shadowy figures in the bedroom doorway, each night. I would talk to them. I also felt 'rubbing' against my legs.. I was frightened of my bedroom.. I think it was my grandmothers bedroom.. I was also frightened by another room in the house.
My aunt had a spirit in her house. I felt it at an early age.. so many stories.. So many rooms I would not go in..Finally, my dad, felt it also.. He was watching the house while my aunt and uncle were on vacation.
What ever happened was so bad, that he refused to go into the house.. just checked the outside door and window locks..
So many stories.. Yes, my aunt and uncle and cousin knew it... and another cousin..

When we moved. I kept hearing sound, as if someone was walking up and down stairs. It scared me.. I was a bit older.. no one else heard them. Only me... It was frightening.. and I also felt as if a 'cat' was walking over me and cuddling me... We did not have a cat at that time..

Now, I swear I have 'someone' in here.. a mischievous thing.. not evil.. I have had so many crazy, stupid things happen since I moved into this apartment. Really weird, bizarre, things.. It is senior housing so who knows.. One day, a maintence guy came up here and we were telling ghost stories. He said there were some real ones in this building..

I had my Priest come in and bless my apartment, I have sprinkled Holy Water all over it.. twice, I even burnt Sage in here...
Now, I am kind of at peace in here. I found out the former tenants name..and tell her to stop it. to leave me alone..

Sometimes, Geoffrey will just get spooked an run.. from nothing.. as if he saw something or something touched him.. It is weird..

So many stories...

I do not know how to deal with your spirit cat... I really do not..
But there was a member.. Have not heard from her in a long time.. who lived with a spirit.. was it Harrigan> or Harrigan, or something close..
The stories she would tell...

I think my friend saying it is evil was based on her catholic religion. Im baptist. That evil can portray what you want.. take hte form of my cat. Now none of us know what is possible. So... I just know certain beliefs, countries have beliefs about this sort of stuff or cats in general and some going back centuries. So.. i know there is no real answer to this.
Seeing Chrissy's hair is such a sweet thing. That, makes me believe more I think. Maybe hearing stories like that.. helps me feel that since your situation couldnt be evil.. that mine isnt either. ?? Thanks!! And also, yes, i am embarrassed to bring it up. but after sooo many times I had to bring it to the attention of people who may understand.

Yea, weird thing about my cats and dog. They never respond at all. Except that "fight" and the toy we all heard. They dont run or stare at anything. I dont get that part. Boo, who didnt know Max should be weirded out if he sensed/saw him. So many people can say their pets react.. mine dont. thanks for sharing.

Talking to a friend a few years back about my ghost cat, she said dogs and cats are common as spirits, and are usually benign.
Thank you!!!!!
Did you ever see yours in physical form?

I was raised Catholic and the only evil I learned about or cared about was Satan and the evil in man's heart. You can 'feel' evil, a spirit can't hurt you if you banish, don't acknowledge it, or let it in. People who don't believe in spirits have never been in the presence of one, lived with one, or are sensitive enough to acknowledge they are near. There are too many unexplainable things in this world to just dismiss them out of hand. When you are scoffed at, or told you are crazy, you begin to question what you saw. What I feel and see with my own eyes is truth, not what someone tells me to believe. If I'm 'crazy', there are a lot out there like me!

My cat Sweetie got very sick and passed away a year and a half ago. After he passed, I sometimes heard purring at night in my room, and I don't have other cats. I had a very strange experience several years ago involving a human ghost. A year after my son was killed in a very violent head on crash I was in my kitchen one morning. It was very early, everything was quiet and still, suddenly I heard someone knocking on my kitchen window. I looked out the window and saw no one, I kept looking at the window and something invisible kept knocking trying to get my attention, then it stopped. It was really creepy, but I have to wonder if it wasn't my son???

Im very sorry about your loss. But because i believe that at least spirits of people are amongst us (im not sure about animals only because of what my personal religion states .. Hence my posting here and being confused about what ive experienced. ) but you were blessed to experience what could very well have been your son.

I used to watch a lot of those shows. Wasn't much on animals though. So thank you for sharing!
