    I was disappointed it was only a cat. For two of us to see something - but for it to only be a damned cat!

    One of the most beautifully observed and poignant depictions of a ghost cat I've seen is the "Valse Triste" (sad waltz ) section from the Italian animated masterpiece Allegro Ma Non Troppo. There's a couple of minutes of it on YouTube (sadly missing the bit where the cat, realising it's dead, sheds a tear and fades). Try to watch the whole movie if you can. The combination of some evocative classical music and dreamlike imagery has a truly hypnotic effect.

    I did see something weird I saw he's food bowl that's empty had food in it out of the corner of my eye but when I looked back it was empty. Ghost food for a ghost cat to eat. How weird is that.

    To me it didn't make sense why would Dylan need food when he's dead and I don't know if he know he's dead or not but I hope he dus know and he just wants to stick around for as long as he won'ts to.

    I, too, once lived in a place where there was a recurring phantom cat seen by both myself and my fiancee. On one occasion we saw it together / simultaneously. I described it years ago in:

    When they demolished some Buildings in Cleveleys they found a mummified
    cat it was left for some time behind the work cabin and was in remarkable condition
    I dont know what happened to it but was told that it was quite common and I don't
    know the truth of this bit that in days gone by to bury a cat under the building
    for good luck, not very lucky for the cat but there you go, but many cats must
    wander under part built buildings and get bricked in maybe thats why there seems
    to be a few ghost cats about.

    There's a Georgian building near here that's now used as a dentist's surgery, which has a mummified cat in the cellar. The cat is mentioned in the deeds as part of the building and not to be moved or disposed of.

    Cats were buried in the walls, lintels and jambs to ward off evil spirits and mummified cats still turn up now and again. I always remember watching a doco a number of years back on Windsor castle where they were filming the renovation of part of the castle and discovered a mummified cat.

    The two history experts had no idea how it got there and surmised that it had fallen in when the place was being built - they had no idea.

    People valued kitties back in medieval times. Not just for keeping vermin down but also for seeing off monsters - Rawrr!

    Here's also a brief history on how cats made it here - not sure how accurate it is as I got distracted by the kitty pics.
