That's nice.

I haven't been visited by my little friend so far, though.

I'm not too sure about ghosts.

What a pleasure to read about such a majestic kitty cat :D I have yet to see my beauty of a dog that passed a few years ago but I hope she visits one day :)

So I'd be interested to hear an explanation of how animals have "ghosts" given the typical conventional wisdom on what a ghost is.

This doesn't surprise me in the slightest. i've always suspected that Cats are in contact with whatever further dimensions there are beyond this one, and my personal theory regarding Ghosts is that that's what they are, only in reverse; they normally inhabit dimensions slightly beyond ours but intersect with ours on occasion.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

In my world,all beings that live,have a soul .Souls can be reincarnated into things other than humans . If they chose to remain this way to say hi to a loved one ,it is that souls prerogative.
I have cats that come back to me repeatedly ,reincarnated . I believe some animals are guardian spirits . We think we rescue them,and it is truely the opposite .

There's probably more reports of seeing animals in homes who are long dead than seeing people.

*Sigh* My cat has been gone since March 2011 when she died in my arms. It was the hardest day. I still wish I could have some sort of visit from her. I miss her so much!

Okay I know this is about cats, but I had a visit from the dog that was my very own when I was in my 20s. She visited me the day she died.

Do you think a cat's soul could come back as a human?

I ask as I can't describe in words how much I loved my cat (who I had from when I was age 10 into my adulthood aged 27).  I farewelled her by holding her in my arms as a dear friend (vet) made her gently go to sleep.  I sobbed and sobbed that day.  Truly, the grief was overwhelming.  She was the softest, most easy-going moggy who was just lovely.

It would be lovely to think that she is still here with me in some way.

I don't have a cat though...  :no:

An explanation on how they couldn't be ghosts, given the typical conventional ideas on what a ghost is would be more warranted, I'd think. The belief that a part (call it a shadow) of a being is left behind in a place it remembers well or fondly can span all species. The belief that a deadly event happens in a being's life and a piece of them is left behind here in the confusion of sudden life to death could span all species. The belief that an intense feeling of separation or love from the owner of the pet could trigger the mind to see them appear before their eyes at moments is another possible explanation. I hope this satisfies your question, but I can give more if you'd like.

Your cat beat my dad and step mom's cat by 2 years. I hope your cat didn't go as senile as theirs did toward the very end, though. It was sometimes funny, sometimes maddening, and often sad.

"I think there may be "ghost phenomenon" that may be still not fully understood or dismissed, but that doesn't make it spirits of the dead, anymore than "UFO" means "spaceship" or even "UFO" or "spaceship" is directly related to aliens, or anything else. There is way too much assumption and a baseless reliance on anecdotal lore, like when people assert this or that about the spirit world or the astral plane or Ouija board demons, or religion. I say 'says WHO?'" - Paranormalcy
