A Ghost Cat


I used to live next door to my neighbor who had a black/white cat. I just adored this cat, and he just loved when I would come over for a visit. My neighbor told me that her cat had a malignant tumor. The cat was still fine the last time I saw him.

We got a two-bedroom apartment in the next building and we moved out. I came back a month later to visit my neighbor. As she opened her door, I saw her cat walking across her bedroom to the living-room and then suddenly had vanished. I asked her whether I could pet her cat, and she told me that cat passed away about a week ago.

She told me that she did not want to euthanize him, and wanted him to pass away naturally. However, his condition got worse, and he was in agony. She just had to call to the veterinary and begged him to come to her home. When the veterinary came over, the cat was in complete agony. There was no other solution but to euthanize him. He died in her apartment right near the door to the hallway. When she told me that he passed away about a week ago, I was shocked! I loved that cat so much! But how could I have seen him walking from a Bedroom to the Living-room? He looked so real! I mean just like a living being. I didn't see any weird lights or some strange ghost-like shape. There he was, a regular cat passing by me. I was thinking that he just passed by me and didn't even cross over my legs. That explained why. He was not there anymore.

I don't know what I saw. Was his ghost there, still in her apartment? It has not been nine days yet, so was he there or was his energy left behind?

I thought that my neighbor lied to me and simply didn't want me to step in. However, this was true. The cat has passed away.

Well, I still cannot make any sense of what I have seen.

😕 Well... It could have been your memory and that the cat knew that you where thinking of Him/Her and that you could see it again one more time 😕

It could be the spirit of the cat or it could be its residual energy left in the home. I think animals could possibly react the same way we do in death, sometimes not actually knowing that we have left this physical plane of existence.

Thanks for sharing

According to some cultures, Eastern European- nine days is when the soul is still on Earth.So, it can be in the place where it died After the 9th days it leaves the Earth and travels to Great beyond (if such exists). Than 40 days--soul travels to a Great beyond.

Yes, you saw the ghost of the cat. This is actually very common. Maybe the cat wanted to see you one more time.
