This time I will tell two stories in one since they are short and related. I do not remember specific dates nor do I remember what time of year they happened, so I will just say they happened a few years ago. I know it wasn't more than 6 or 7 years ago.
One night I was laying in bed listening to music but not asleep yet. I happen to look over as I saw something with my peripheral vision. It was my cat Snowflake or so I thought standing on the edge of my bed. I thought it strange I didn't feel her jump up.
I just stared at her because I felt something was off about her. Then I noticed that her front paws were on the bed but her back ones were not. (and no there was not a table where she could have been on. I had a table net to my bed but further down) Yet her back legs were level with her front ones. I just stared at her then she slowly faded away.
Now I know I was awake as I did what I always do when I have a paranormal encounter while in bed. I pinched myself. Snowflake is not with us anymore, but she was alive when I had this experience.
This next story I was also laying in bed. This time I was facing the wall that my bed was against. I rolled over and saw my cat Astarte sitting on my nightstand. When I looked more closely at her, I saw that her face was contorted and her paw was reached out like she was having a seizure or something.
This creeped me out and I went to kind of swat her gently to get her to snap out of it. When I did she faded away. Now again I know I was awake as I pinched myself this time too. Astarte is still alive and well.
These two incidents happened no more than a year between each other. Not really sure what they were. Doppelganger cats? Shape shifting entity? I do know that we have ghost cats in this house or something that mimics a cat. We often will see cats in the corner of our eyes or feel one brush against us when there are none nearby. Now it wouldn't surprise me that we have ghost cats as we have had so many cats over the years.
It would be nice to see what y'all's thoughts are on this. I thank all of you that read my first story as well as this one. There will be more to come.
