Ghost Cats


Ghost Cats are a form of the paranormal that occurs quite often. 

More often than not, people who experience this phenomenon are people who have had a cat pass on recently. Other stories I have heard involve the cat returning at specific times of the year, like the holidays.

People even have photographs where these deceased cats show up in transparent form. Eyewitness accounts are too numerous to list here but the most common are cats jumping up on the bed with their former owners, laying down next to them or walking across their legs. 

Another common report is people reporting that these Ghost Cats brush against their legs or they hear them meowing. And yet other reports describe cats scratching at the bedclothes on their owners’ beds.

My group members have also experienced this phenomenon at investigations we have done. One store we investigate on a regular basis has a resident ghost cat. 

Several of my members have had their legs brushed and seen this cat out of the corner of their eyes. We put a food dish down for this cat as a “trigger object.”

Below is a video at a private residence we investigated. This camera was on a tripod in the backyard. 

During the time we filmed this cat the camera went haywire (all the static) once the cat disappeared the camera went back to normal focus. 

This is a “possible” ghost cat. Look closely at the first few seconds and again at the end when the cat is out in the open it appears to be transparent.

The only cat in this area has no tail, this one does.

This is a fabulous video! As a cat lover and someone who has personally had 2 ghost cat visitations, I love this video.

I could not see the video but I believe it as my grand daughter has claimed of seeing her deceased cat.

We had to put our cat down a few months ago... my baby for 17 years. I still hear her walking across the living room floor when I'm home alone, and from time to time, I see her sitting on the floor beside my desk. My husband ha seen her too. Miss her a lot.

Iv had 3 cats leave me. My most recent one was my little girl Pandora. She was only 3 and a half and died of liver failure. My other cat who is still with me talks to her in the hallway of my house and I see her pop her head round the door of my living room, when I go to investigate she is not there physically but I know she is. My other deceased cat is called ludo, he has found my new home and I have seen him a few times now. He was always very playful. Bobby was my first cat and I believe him to be the same spirit of my childhood cat. He is never far from my dreams and is always very vivid .

I believe the connections people make with their pets continues after death.

My ginger cat Jock got hit by a car 9 days ago & was killed. When alive he used to jump on my bed and walk up to my pillow and sleep next to my head. Last night while laying awake, I felt something walking up my bed to the pillow, I could feel his weight against my head. I couldn't see him but I sure felt him. I said to him "Jock you've come back". Since he died I've also heard him meow at the door which he used to do all the time to be let in. I miss him so much.

I've recently bought and moved into a new house and have been living there for almost 2 months. I just bought my first kitten two weeks ago, and since then there have been a few weird incidents happening! On the 1st February I heard my kitten meow in the hallway, only to be replied by a much deeper sounding adult cat also in the hallway! It happened a few more times with my kitten meowing and the adult cat replying. The hair on the back of my neck stood up because I thought a cat had somehow gotten into my house! I finally summoned some courage and went to look for the cat, but found nothing but my kitten sitting in the hallway. It happened again the next night, but this time in the dining room where I have direct line of sight from the lounge room. I heard an adult cat meow twice but could only see my kitten.

Last night, February 9th I heard my kitten meow strangely from the hallway, Immediately jumped up to see him hissing, with his back arched and fur all standing up – he was doing this in the hallway but there was nothing there! I freaked out and went to bed lol. So – perhaps a ghost cat??

Could be--or something else--that only your cat can see.

Emily, our 19 year old cat passed away last February. She and I always had a special connection. One morning soon after her death, my husband and I were sitting at the kitchen table, where Emily loved to sleep, when we heard a cat meow, softly, several times. I looked around thinking it was our other cat but she was fast asleep.

Yesterday, our cat Cosette passed away at the age of 17. She loved to spend her day sleeping in the garden. When I would garden she would follow me around the yard and would rub her head against my leg. This morning I was outside, engrossed in my garden work when I felt something brush my leg from behind just as though she were there doing it. I quickly turned to see nothing there. It's comforting to think that they are still with you in spirit.

I rent a room at a house and every night i am visited by a ghost cat that jumps up on the bed, crosses over my legs, lays down, begins to purr and then falls asleep. This cat also visits me when i nap during the day. I can literally feel the blankets going down around me as the cat finds a place that is comfortable. I was terrified the first 30 times this happened to me, but now when i feel the static in my legs and the warmth of the cat and listen to it breathing, it is somehow comforting. I love my ghost cat, i have never owned one in life, but now i have one in spirit. It is truly remarkable.

Well I was amazed when I first came across this Website and read some of the comments and it was the same experiences that my Wife and I have just had, we just lost our lovely Birman Persian cat Smokey who was 18 years old he died of Kidney Failure and we are devastated, miss him so much, since then we have heard meows in the hallway several times and my wife felt him walk over her feet in bed, and I have felt him around my legs, we are convinved he is still with us. RIP Smokey.

We have a ghost cat at our place. Not sure why it just started happening, but it scares us. It is just a clearly audible meow here and there.

Well I am back again, since my last posting we have experienced some more of the strange happenings , it's now five weeks since our lovely Birman Smokey passed over the rainbow and we have had more meows at night, walking on the bed and my Wife heard him again the other morning and I saw him briefly in the kitchen the other day, we are now convinced more than ever he has not left us. Most of these phenomena have occurred since we brought home his ashes, l now believe firmly in ghost cats,we are living with one .

My rescued cat of 3 years recently went over rainbow bridge. She was doing great, but a very sick rescue. I established a special bond with her in the last year. It was great. I've felt weird things occur when she was around and I would confirm it was her. Well, Can i say, they those things continued to occur after she passed, and I didn't need to confirm it was her.

She pounced on my bed on the left-hand corner, and I hear and feel it every so often. She would kind of get in my way at feeding time and stop me from walking. It still happens. I actually can't move my feet for a like 50 seconds. It so special and marvelous.

She was kidney failed and diabetic and would hang on the side of the water bowl and her teeth would ting the glass. I hear it like 3 am in the morning all the time.

I can't wait for the next visit. Tiffy knew I was in love with her right from the pickup. I believe she was in love with me. xoxo

I have no recent cats who have moved on. The last family cat was over 15yrs ago but 3 years ago I had regular visits from a ghost car for a week or two. I would feel it jump on the bed and walk and settle down against my leg with a definite heavy feeling as if a real cat was curled up sleeping. I also got loud purring in my ear a couple of times. I have no idea why it visited me. Maybe because the first time it happened I was a bit scared but decided to be brave and 'pretended' to stroke it so maybe that made it keep coming back? I know I wasn't dreaming or half asleep as one time I was talking to a friend on my mobile when it came. I have moved house since then but just a week ago felt a similar visit. No purring just walking and that kneeding cats do. I wonder why and what does it mean? The first time I had broken up with my husband and this second time I have recently broken up from my boyfriend. I'm not lonely or sad but maybe they come to offer comfort??

My neighbor's cat, whom I befriended, got hit by a car. She was still a small cat, not grown. A week after her death both my mother and I saw her running through our house. She would often run past me when I opened the back door coming home late at night. This continued for a year, almost every night and then her appearances gradually quit for now and then.

Our black and white cat Lovey got hit by a car. She was still alive when we saw in the road, but by the time we got to her, she had passed. It was heartbreaking. A week later, we adopted some orphan kittens that had been abandoned in a box on top of a building.
Last night (7/19/16), my husband got up to use the restroom. He saw an orange and white cat sleeping at the foot of the bed. We have never owned an orange and white cat. Twice he got up to use the restroom and twice he saw her on the bed. I figure this must be the mother cat of our two orphaned kittens, since they are calico with orange, white and black mixed in. I had the two kittens on the bed earlier in the day. Perhaps the mama cat could "sense" her babies had been on the bed. I don't think this ghost cat was Lovey, since Lovey was black and white.

We've had other ghost cat visits. Ever so often I hear a cat breathing near by my bed in the morning. That could be either my Siamese Patty or half-Siamese cat Katie Anne. I have felt a cat jump on my bed, and I believe it was Patty paying me a visit, as it felt just like her. She was very light on her feet. Katie, our half-Siamese, once paid us a visit; my husband and I both saw her walking in the hallway.

This is the first time we've had an "unknown" cat ghost visit us. So it must be the mother cat of my babies.
