Shadow Cat Takes Form


On Easter morning 2007, I found my cat Tigger dead in the street in front of our house. I did not know what happened to her. Was she hit by a car or what? Heartbroken I paid a visit to a psychic. She told me that my poor Tigger was hit in the head with a rock by an evil teenager, and died in three seconds. She also said that Tigger is still hanging around our property.

I am adding a second storey to my house. As a result of this there are several large holes in the ceilings.

One night a few months ago, I was sleeping in the living room and heard a scratching noise. I went over to one of the ceiling holes, and saw the face of an animal looking at me. I shouted hey, and then I heard it running on the floor of the new second storey. Since the floor is nailed down, there is no way anyone or anything can get from the hole in the ceiling to the second storey floor.

I went upstairs and there was nothing was there. This animal looked solid and real not ghost like. Three solar lights mark Tigger's grave out front.

At 2 AM it is dark and those lights are always on when it is dark.

This night the lights were out. Now I hear scratching in my wife's bathroom, from the ceiling. My wife has also heard this. This only occurs between the hours of 2-4 am and the solar lights are always out when it happens.

Is Tigger a shadow cat now?

I think she takes the energy from the solar lights, to look and sound real.

that teenager deserves the something drastic for doing such a horrible thing, kiling animals, especially pets who people have come to know and love is very f**king wrong I can barely believe there are a**holes that do things like that and get no consequence. Hopefully they get bad karma and something horrible happens back to them, or tigger's ghost causes them to have an aciddent 😠

Mean teenager... I HATE it when people abuse animals...It's so wrong and cruel. 😠
Sorry for the loss of Tigger - I know how you feel - my cat had to be put down about a year ago.

Are you sure it was a teenager? I'm a cat-lover so I'm completely sympathetic and I'm sorry for your loss, but I think that Tigger would have looked pretty darn ugly if s/he was beaten to death by a rock. Either way it sounds to me like your cat is letting you know s/he still cares 😊

Violence may provoke more violence so beating the teenager is in theory meaningless. Though I'm not one to tell them to pray or whatnot. The cat means no harm but I'd exorcise it soon. Even a good-natured spirit may well turn hostile so try to let it pass on the other side. =/ Really weird to do so since it's kind of weird with an animal ghost. I suppose I should say adieu and god bless. 😊

Yay my first post. Well in my opinion that might just be your subconscious. You might just conjure the image of the cat, because you miss her so much... Or it might be ghost... I won't go and shout anything until I get some proof. But I hope you find the one who killed your cat and close that case. It just might help you do get over her death.

Find the teenager and beat them senseless

On a more positive note, maybe the solar lights' timer (if any) is set to stop then. For the scratching, unless you can get inside the second floor from the outside, I have no idea. Maybe a racoon or something got in
