Our black and white cat Lovey was hit by a car near our home. We saw her still moving in the street, but by the time we parked in the driveway and rushed to her, she had passed. It was so distressing and from the look on her face, she had died in great pain. One week later, through a good friend, we adopted two orphan kittens that were left in a box on a rooftop. They were about 2 1/2 weeks old.
Last night (7/19/16), my husband got up to use the restroom. He saw an orange and white cat at the foot of the bed. She looked up at him as if to say "Hi!" He could see her head clearly but the rest of her body was like an outline. We have never owned an orange and white cat. The cat we lost (Lovey) was black and white. Twice he got up to use the restroom and both times he saw the cat on the bed. I believe this cat might be the mother cat of the two kittens we adopted. Earlier in the day I had both kittens on the bed, and they were frolicking and playing. That night, the orange and white cat made an appearance. The kittens were sleeping in the master bathroom with the door closed, so they weren't on the bed with us. Both kittens are calico, with orange and white fur, mixed with some black.
This is the first time a strange cat made an appearance in our home. We have had other ghost cat visits, but they were from our own cats that we had owned. Both my husband and I saw our Tabby-Point Siamese Katie walking down the hallway. The hallway was dark but we could see a silvery white cat that looked like her. There have been several cases where I am starting to wake up and I hear the breathing of a cat nearby. This is probably our Seal Point Siamese Patty or our tabby cat Sammy. Both would breath a bit heavily when they slept.
