lovely episodes well told GhostInTheMachine
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.
My mum has seen the the ghost of Dylan going out of the bedroom up stairs window which he did in life there's plastic roofing on each side of the porch that my dad put up.
good stuff Megadeth! still keeping an eye on you.
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.
I like that! it makes...... sense?
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.
Our first house had the ghost of a small black cat used to see it at least 2 or 3 times a week but sometimes 3 times a day, at first I thought it was real and serched were it disapeared but eventually realized it was not a real animal, didn't tell the wife but about 30 years later I did she said That bloody black cat, she had been seeing it 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.
That sounds right thought I had heard something along those lines.
i cant remember if i have mentioned this before on here? but, my cousin(s) lived in an 'active' house when they were younger. anyway one of my female cousins often felt a cat curl up on her bed at night, except they didnt have a cat.
