I have been for about a month feeling weird things. I've always been super sensitive to animals. I learned when I was very young how to temporarily tame insects, who are very sensitive to emotion and energy. I can go outside and reach into a yellow jacket nest without being stung. (Yellow Jackets are my favorite) People around me tell me that they feel calmer around me. If I concentrate really hard I can put my hands on someone and put them to sleep.
I was doing this to my puppy to get him to sleep when I felt whiskers on my leg. I thought that maybe it was Hazel, one of my dogs. But when I looked, there was nothing there. Like two or three times a day I feel a brush of fur or whispers. A few days ago I looked up from the couch and saw a scruffy black cat on our dresser, looking out the window. I blinked and it was gone.
This morning I was putting soiled kitty litter (our cat Gracie lives in the laundry room and is light grey) in the garbage outside when I saw a little girl, probably about five, in a torn and worn dress. It was dirty too. She was looking at the kitty litter. She had big dark circles around her eyes. She began coughing, big, gagging coughs.
I ran back into the house. Two hours ago, I was petting Gracie (our laundry room has a huge window looking outdoors, Gracie spends a lot of time looking out and watching the dogs in the yard). Gracie suddenly turned toward the window. I looked and saw the little girl, face pressed against the window. Then she was gone.
I think she is looking for her cat? I wonder of that black cat and the girl are linked.
