Mavi Kasirgo means Blue Tornadoe in the Turkish language. Mavi was one of my beloved cats, a beautiful black Turkish Ann. But his life was coming to an end: On December 23 2003, he got terribly sick; He got paralyzed, and could only switch his tail around, and therefore couldn't eat. We took him to the vet, and he was diagnosed with a rare case of cancer that was slowly eating his strength away. We had to put him to sleep on Christmas Eve. I tried to make the best of my Christmas, even though Mavi was gone. Or was he?
At about 7:15 PM that Christmas day, I was sitting in the family Sunroom watching television. I happened to glance into the Dinning room, when a flash of light caught my eye. I immediately looked back, and saw an orb of light dancing above the table. It flew into the next room -the kitchen- and disappeared behind a corner for some time, then flew across the kitchen, and into the basement. I thought I was just seeing things, until it happened again the next night at 9:05 PM. I was in bed, just kinda staring at the wall waiting to fall asleep, when something approached me from the stairway. It was the orb again. It swooped around my room for a few minutes, then it went out of my room, and back downstairs, and what I assumed, back into the basement. This time I didn't think I was hallucinating, and I was up all night waiting to see if the orb would come back.
A few weeks later in the month of January 2004, I was browsing through the internet, when I clicked an article about ghosts. Ghosts had always interested me, and I found the time to read it. It turns out that the article was all on ghost orbs, and that many people thought they were angels in this particular form. I then realized that Mavi had been visiting me. Now, I occasionally see him. I've also seen him as an almost transparent apparition of a cat (only once), and I've seen him as nothing; Only the sound of his paws padding across the floor and into the basement when both of my cats are asleep. The most frequent times I see him is in the basement at night in between 7:00 and 9:30 PM in his angel form. I now believe that Mavi is a sort of guardian angel, and appears before me to let me know he is not gone.
