The story I'm about to tell you happened to my mother. If you may not believe it, I can assure that they really happened.
Over the years cats have been known to be spiritual creatures and have appeared in many cultures. In Egypt, cats were worshiped as descendants of the cat Goddess Bast. In Europe, black cats were killed for they were often associated with the devil. It is also common to find cats depicted as spiritual entities in Chinese and Japanese mythologies. In my case, I treasure cats as creations of God and my companions.
I was never able to keep a cat until I turned 12. Since then, I had become the proud owner of six beautiful cats, all of mixed breed and very lovable.
This story happened three years ago. At that time we only had five cats. It was 3am in the morning and there was a heavy storm outside. My mother, a business woman, was working on her paperwork at that time and was just about ready to go to sleep. When she got up to turn off lights, she noticed that our cats had gathered and were facing the doorway. The light switch was located next to the front door and my mother had to get to door get to it.
Suddenly all of our five cats began to hiss menacingly at the door as if there was something terrifying and dangerous. My mother froze in her tracks. Now, my apartment door has a grill and a heavy wooden door which closes slowly even when pushed by hand. In front of my door was a wooden screen which was blocking my mother's view of the mysterious intruder. Just then, without warning, the heavy wooden door slammed shut as if someone extremely strong had pushed it shut causing my cats to scatter in fright. My mother quickly turned off the lights and went to bed, praying to God in her heart.
She relayed the story to me and my three other siblings the next day which was how I came to know of it. My mother was never one to believe in the supernatural, so when she told the story, I believed her without a doubt.
Whatever my cats saw that night, they must have frightened it away. I have heard cats have a sixth sense, being able to see the supernatural. Either way, I have gained a new appreciation for them.
