Can cats see ghosts? How about angels? Or even demons?
Well, animals may not use a language to communicate like humans but a true animal observer will realize that animals do communicate very well with their sounds and body language.
The cat is one such species and apart from communicating with their owners, they have a connection with each other as well.
It might seem a bit unusual for humans who consider this preposterous, but if you observe cats keenly, they are not as unintelligent as many of us might consider them to be.
Some feline observers have found their cats staring continuously at a particular spot, from which they later found unusual sounds coming.
Cats and Paranormal Activity
Other examples include cats that sense ghosts and stare at the stairway like someone is walking up and down. After a while staring, it looks like they are trying to fight something off their face.
Some of us might consider it as playing, while others might just think this is the way cats behave. But is that really true?
There was another cat who lived with his pet owner and kept staring at a room. The owner did in fact report she could hear some unusual sounds coming from the room.
Did the cat see anything that was not visible to the human eye? It has been predicted that cats can see things from the spiritual world which normal people usually cannot.
According to some studies, it has been said that cats genuinely know more than humans. They feel certain vibrations, and that seems to be the reason they despise people who are not fond of cats.
It is quite shocking, but they can sense negativity coming from certain people, and they tend to either stay away from such people or hiss at them.
They even know when their owners are going to arrive and who loves them the most. They are even capable of realizing any danger that is near them or near their pet parents.
Another well-known trait they posses, is understanding when their caretaker is sad or hurt. Such telepathic traits make it more believable that they are completely capable of sensing things that we humans may often not notice.
In ancient Egypt, cats were worshiped. The Egyptian culture was famous for its devotion to cats. As killing a cat back then was considered a crime, there was punishment for people who hurt cats. If a cat died, everybody in the owning family had to shave their eyebrows.
They worshiped a goddess who had the face of a cat and was the protector of women’s secrets, and a guardian against evil spirits and diseases.
The cat was an important animal for the Egyptians and they considered it as a way to communicate to the realm of spirits.
Although it might be shocking for us, if the Egyptian mythology is to be believed, then cats can communicate with spirits and they might be able to clearly identify one.
Cats have had many occurrences in the past and their species have played some significant roles making it altogether believable that they could in fact understand if there was any paranormal activity going on around them.
The Egyptian history claims them to be a mediator between the two realms – the one humans lived in, and the one of spirits. Could that really be true?
Are Cats Protectors from spirits?
It has been observed that cats behave weird when they sense an unusual presence around them. It is even said that they do not like a place if they sense any psychic presence there. Ancient Egyptian mythology claims that cats are blessed with the power to ward away evil spirits.
Lots of folklore tales claim that dogs bark in the night in order to ward away any evil spirits. The same is told with feline creatures as well.
Buddhists believe that cats are the souls of the dead who live in the bodies of cats before they get another new life. Cats are also believed to see any aura or evil presence around human beings.
Many believe that cats can easily predict future as they get to ‘know’ their owner, or that they can easily sense feelings.
They certainly may not be able to completely protect you from evil spirits, but they may warn you if anything bad is about to happen, according to popular belief.
There are times when you might have seen a cat behave weirdly as if something exists around it, or as if it is playing with something.
There are some owners who have reported that they have seen their cat’s eyeballs move as if it was looking at someone walking by or running up and down the stairs.
So Do Cats Really See Ghosts?
Sadly, cats have been associated with bad luck as well. Whenever a black cat crosses your path you either wait for someone to cross it first or you may take a turn and try going on another road. It may seem trivial, but the simple fact that we still do that shows that we must believe it to some degree.
To the contrary, there are those who adore cats and don’t believe that they could be associated with any supernatural abilities.
Whichever the case, we do have to admit that they do behave weird at times, and that sometimes we can see them act as though they were seeing someone around. Still, believing whether they posses any supernatural power or not is entirely up to you.
