Not My Cats


My Two beautiful cats no longer sleep on the bed with me. I suppose it is a good thing. Inca now sleeps in his basket near the bedroom door and Smoky has made his little bed on a cabinet near the front door.

Last night I got back from gym about 9:30pm. I walked into the bedroom and like always looked at the white face like thing on the wall above the bed. I smile at it now. I put the lamp on changed out of my gym wear and went into the kitchen to make a cup of coffee. On my way back into the living room, I stroked Smoky who was lying comfortable on the bookcase. I walked into the living, sat down had my coffee flicked through the channels, nothing was on so I switched everything of and decided to go to bed.

I still sleep closest to the window, for some reason I cannot sleep on the right side of the bed, I cannot even turn my back to the window as I find it really hard to breathe. Strange but there you go. As I was lying in bed, Inca jumped on the bed. I got up whispered his name and with that he jumped of the bed and back into his basket. I lay back down but this time on my back, started at the ceiling for a bit then turned to face the window. I was barely a sleep when I felt Smoky jump on the bed and walk next to my feet and legs and then lie down right next to my feet.

I found this really strange as I did not even hear his bell. I moved around a little and he was definitely lying on the bed next to my feet. I whispered his name "Smoky", "Momo". Nothing; not even a meow. I slowly pulled myself up to have a look at Smoky, only to find that Smoky was not actually on the bed, none of the cats were.

Unperturbed by this I lay back down, pulled the covers up and closed my eyes at which point I heard something jump of the bed.

The only reason I was calm is because I knew Inca was in the room. There have been times when neither of my kitties have been present. That is another story.

Thank you for reading my story.

I lost two cats last year who were quite old (18 and 19). The female cat was my cat and we were very attached to each other. There are many times when I feel her presence either settle behind my legs at night or see a glimpse of a moving cat in parts of the house when none of the cats are there.

My childhood cat visited me for years after she died, before she finally left for good. I've always been so grateful that she would go to the effort of doing that.

wow that's really creepy. I have a cat too so just the thought of something like that happening to me is kind of freaky. Well it seems like there are other cats that are attracted to you and your cats don't seem to have a problem with it. Another good story. Thanks.

I love how calm you were about it. Just let it jump on and off... Just like a "real" cat. Who knows maybe your two cats have another "friend" to keep them company

Opaleone, yes it has happened before, but this particular night it did freak me out, I know if Inca the oldest cat was not in the bedroom I probably would have reacted differently. Whatever it was, I can only at this stage presume it was a cat, definitely meant no harm, and upon moving a couple of times, moving my legs, it jumped off the bed.

Has this happened before? (The ghostly cat?)
Has any cat in your life died recently?
You didn't feel freaked out so I doubt it was harmful or negative.

I am able to get spirits to go away so update me on things and I can teach you how to get rid of it. 😁

I've been relying on my dogs' presence in bed with me to let me know that "all is well" - this isn't reassuring! 😉
