I only ever see odd things when I turn my head quickly or turn quickly.

I still remember the blood going down the black suit and the petals floating from his pale white carcass

Hi All,

I'm new... stumbled upon this site when I searched for "hearing voices before falling asleep" and found the thread about knocking noises, voices, etc. right before falling asleep -- glad I'm not the only one  wink2.gif

However, there's another search that I've been doing and haven't come up with anything yet.  It's about seeing a cat(s) out of the *corner of your eye* when there is not one there.

I've been told that this can be a psychologic problem, but was wondering if perhaps since cats are associated with magic, etc., if there is any folklore out there about seeing cats that aren't really there.

I would love to hear any and all thoughts!

If you are still on this site, I would like to chat with you. I have been followed by imaginary cats for several years, the latest incident was so real I almost fell from my chair. I glanced from the corner of my ege and saw this light colored cat looking straight at me. There were three people in my kitchen and no one else saw it.  I felt its presence before I saw it but, when I turned my head, it disappeared.

I have searched everywhere for answers but no one seems to have ever experienced this. Therefore, when I saw your message it was validity that this do exist, but what is it?

Please reply.

happens all the time. sometimes when i move my head quickly. sometimes when its stationary. they just seem to float down my eyes, but i cant focus on them.

Yeah, I have those.. I often make the mistake of trying to catch them, and running into things....


I dunno, is this cat-lover sick? I've been awful for the past few days, and I was hallucinating one night.

My best friend claims to see ghosts of cats. Even claims to see her old cat that died 3 years ago...

It's called a "floater."  It's an artifact between your inner eye and cornea.  Always with you, very tiny.

I had a peroid when I would often see something long and white disappear behind a chair or around a corner when I turned around quickly, I thought it looked a little like a tail or something, but not really cat-like.  Anywho, I see them pretty rarely anymore, so either it was my eyes playing tricks on me, they got tired of following me, or they just got more stealthy than before  ph34r.gif

I have never heard of mystical events in which a person had the experiences your friend described.

However, as you have stated your friend cares for cats substantially.

So one potential explanation is that your friend is organizing his or her visual experiences, in relation to what he or she can see, out of the corner of his or her eye's, in such a way that cats are something he or she sees consistently, despite the fact they are not there (this behavior is akin to looking at a cloud and finding a pattern similar to and object.  

Any thoughts?

I have never seen a 'ghost cat' but my cousin has. She was staying with me one time and I heard her yell from the bedroom. I ran in and she was freakin out. She told me that she saw a white cat in the room. The cat I had at the time was dark grey and was in the livingroom sleeping. hmm.gif I believe that she saw something. This was the same room where my daughter saw red eyes in her toybox. w00t.gif

Actually I have heard of this before.   At another website (I can't remember which one), this same topic was being discussed.   Apparently, many people see this small spectre out of the corner of their eye.  The people that claim to see them, definitely describe forms that are more than just "floaters".  They always describe them as dark, moving, and either in the shape of a cat or a more "impish" creature.  Whether this is supernatural or psychological, I will not speculate....... unsure.gif

is there anyone ever saw ghost-rats.... grin2.gif

ok..back to the question..there is one possible explanation to this, that is a wierd story about shadow-people..it is said that they play tricks on us by suddenly appering in the walls as shadow, they can manifest themselves into any kind of things and also as a cat if they want.. no.gif

but as u guys know this is maybe just a folklore.. hmm.gif

Oh, I see cats at the corner of my eyes all the time.  I have three of them (one being black, I'm a Lucky Irishman) and one time they were at the vet and could not possibly be in the house, I seemed like I saw one out of the corner of your eyes.  It's just a defensive mechanism that help's ya keep alert.  Don't push a bunch of pseudo-intelligence bulls*** on it.
