This is a story about a ghost cat. This happened to my mother and her first husband shortly after they were married. They were married in 1928; my mother was eighteen years old. They rented a farm not too far from both sets of parents around Stigler, OK. There was no electricity; they used cold oil lamps, which were lit with a match. The bed was made of mattress made of feathers, which when you made an indent the indention stayed there until you fluffed it.
Every night when they went to bed the last thing he would do is blow out the lamp. After he would do that it felt like a cat jumped upon the foot of the bed. They did not have a cat nor was there one anywhere around. He would relight the lamp and they would see the four indents of a cat's four feet at the foot of the bed in the feather mattress. This mother said went on for about a week. So one night they decided they would shut and lock all of the doors and windows, search the house then he would blow out the lamp but have a match ready to relight it. They got into bed and blew out the lamp. As soon as they done this the cat again jumped upon the foot of the bed. They relit the lamp and started searching the house. No cat to be found.
They moved from there as quickly as possible finding another farm to rent.
I would very much like comments on this story.
Another thing I would like comments on is that I grew up around cats; my father bred long haired Golden Tabbies. So there was always two or more in our house. I have seen many times that one cat would see and react to a spirit that I was seeing but the other cat would not. This happened with different cats in different situations. Why would one react and the other not? Anyone have an opinion?
