My little sister (Leah) sees ghosts/spirits. I have never seen/experienced what she says she sees but I very much believe her when she tells me about it. She's been seeing a black spirit her whole life but she says she only sees it at our house we grew up in. She sees other spirits/ghosts other places but the black spirit she sees is the only one that makes her feel threatened or afraid.
I have a 4 year old cat (Molly) who is like a baby to me. She's typically pretty skittish around anyone but my boyfriend and I. When we have guests over or if there seems to be commotion she usually hides (she's been this way since she was a baby, and since its usually quiet in my home, I think this is why she reacts this way)
When Leah comes over she doesn't hide. She will actually attack her if I'm not around to tell her no and if I am around she will sit across the room from Leah with an unbreaking glare and will occasionally hiss. I have shook her favorite toy when shes doing this and she will not even flinch (and usually she will come running from the other side of the house if she hears it). This is really unusual behavior for her, especially if nothing at all has provoked her. Leah has tried to Molly and she will swat her and run away.
Leah mentioned that she thinks its the spirits. I think it might be too. But what does this mean? I have heard that cats will try to protect their owners when spirits are present but my sister says she doesn't ever see or feel anything at my house, so I don't know what is making my Molly act like this around her.
Any thoughts or similar experiences from anyone?
