Ghosts seem to follow me wherever I go. While there are specific places that may be haunted, I believe that most spirits who have been to the “light” and have come back, are able to roam the universe freely as they please. We don’t see or hear them all of the time because most humans are not aware of them, but it doesn’t mean that they are not there.
While fascinated by ghosts, I take steps to manage how I interact with them. I do frequent spiritual cleansings to help balance both my own energies and the ones in my house. The energies in my home are generally peaceful. I made sure of that before we moved in. The last thing I wanted to do was buy a house with unhappy spirits attached to it.
For years, I’ve seen the spirit of my dog, Bambi, wherever I have lived. I have even dreamt of my orange calico cat, Magic, coming to visit me. A few weeks after we bought our house, George and I got our tuxedo cat, Diana. Almost immediately afterward, I started seeing flashes of a cat that had similar coloring to Diana appearing inside of our bedroom. At first I thought I was imagining it because I was worried about Diana sneaking into the bedroom and getting at our parakeet, Skye Baby.
Instead of stopping, the appearances of another cat increased. One day, I was standing by the counter in our kitchen when I saw the black silhouette of a cat out of the corner of my eye. Thinking it was Diana, I didn’t flinch when I saw it move to rub up against my legs. I bent down to pet Diana like I usually do, only she wasn’t there. I mentioned the incident to my husband, George, who told me that Diana was asleep on the couch in the living room. George said that he had often seen the same thing and found that Diana was nowhere near him at the time.
After talking about it some more, we decided that we must have a ghost cat visiting us and have since dubbed the friendly, little apparition “Ghost Cat.” Both of us have seen Ghost Cat around the house. A few weeks after deciding on a name for our feline spirit companion, I had a dream that there were two Dianas sitting in my bedroom.
“This doesn’t make any sense,” I thought. Then I said, “Oh, you must be Ghost Cat.” The cat leaned into the caress when I knelt to pet him. Whereas, Diana has mostly black fur, including on her face, this cat had white cheeks. He kind of reminded me of an old man in cat form.
Later, when I told George about the dream and described the cat to him, he showed me an old picture of his childhood pet, Tracy. The cat in the picture looked incredibly similar to the cat that I had seen in my dream. Tracy was an extremely loving and friendly cat. He even used to play with the children that attended George’s mother’s family daycare.
I have seen Ghost Cat come through our front door (while it was closed), jump up on the couch, and walk around our kitchen and dining area. Diana doesn’t seem to be bothered by his presence. Sometimes George and I have even seen him at the same time. Whenever we do, we always say, “Hi, Ghost Cat.”
