I had this rabbit named Spot. I had known him since he was first born and he was a great pet. He was also very sweet. Every day when I came home he would stick his nose through the bars of his cage and let me pet him. But a few months ago, when I got back from school, he was dead. My whole family is still mourning from his death.
A few weeks after he passed away, I went downstairs to where his hutch was, expecting to see him there for some reason. When I realized he wasn't in the cage, I cried. But then I felt a cold air on me and I thought I heard sounds in his cage. It sounded like he was walking in the hutch. I'm not sure if I hallucinated or not but I had a few wierd experiences after his death.
Like on the day he died I had a feeling of sadness sweep over me before I even knew he died. And he also came to thought at this time. It was like he was trying to tell me something. This has happened a few times.
Like when I cleaned out his abandoned hutch a feeling of happiness came over me like he was happy that where he once lived his life was clean. And that sometimes happens now when I go near his hutch. I feel happiness sweep over me. Like he wants me to know that he's there. I'm not sure whether I'm just imagining things while trying to cope with my beloved pet's death, or if my rabbit is trapped between worlds and is trying to tell me. He was a very special pet so I am thinking he is maybe trying to help me cope with the death or maybe he senses that I miss him and he's trying to let me know that he's still here. The weird thing about this though is that I don't have any feeling come over me when I'm near his grave.
Also, a priest at my church said that it's highly unlikely that animals can become spirits or have life after death. So I'm still not sure whether my pet is haunting our family or not.
