.. well not really.

I have had a friend staying with me for hm, about year now, since she broke up with her bf.

Well she just called me at work and said,
Please tell me you picked up another black cat.
Me: no, of course not why?
Her:Cause i just saw three cats sleeping in the chair in the living room and 2 of them are black.
Me: where are you now.
her: on my cell in my bed room
Me: go back and check..
her: no way, its your ghost cat not mine.

Not sure what I would do if that happened to me. I think I'd probably be hiding outside some place!!!

The fun part is when ghost cats try and wake you up at night

Wow, shes lived there for a year and just noticed this? I suspect she needs glasses...

OMG.

That reminds me of another creepy story (happened to a friend, not me).

Well, friends, a couple, husband and wife, just bought a new house (new to them, but an old farmhouse). Even extended, it's titchy, and it has this loft/attic space. So, they had some guy in - plumber, I think maybe? Anyway, a house-fixy professional.

My friends warn him about the cat (big, all black, very muscular, and sadly, a pyscho). So he's up in the loft (painted and stuff - could be spare room kind of thing) when all of a sudden he sees this - and climbs back down, not sure how to tell the nice lady that her cat is dead.

Like, dead-dead. Rigor mortis set in.

Apparently, perfect doppleganger for Oscar. My friend is looking at the corpse in horror, when Oscar comes along to investigate what's going on.

Nobody has the faintest clue where the body came from.

Could another cat have gotten in somehow? Years ago, we would find a black cat sleeping up in our spare bedroom, and our then dog (a Boxer) and cat never said boo. We didn't have screens in the windows, and the cat would come in and make himself at home. We eventually found out where the cat lived, and that he'd lost his companion, a Boxer, which explained the attraction.

Our last cat had a cat flap, and often had six or seven cats along for breakfast. That used to be quite a sight.

That reminds me of an incident years ago. I had a wicker trunk that sat in front of the front windows so the cats could look out. Bo was a flame point Siamese mix and love sitting there. One night he was sitting on the trunk and I noticed his reflection in the window...but his reflection moved when he didn't! I was and then I realized there was an identical cat sitting outside on the planter. I never saw that identical flame point cat again. it was very eerie.

That happened to me one evening! We had Jamie's "Doppelgänger", ZsaZsa, living here for a few years, until her original family moved to Croatia. She was smaller than him, and was allowed outdoors. One evening I got a shock when I saw "Jamie" sitting both inside and outside our living room windows (which are on the second floor in the back, as our house is on an incline). ZsaZsa had climbed up a trellis/vine to position herself on the sill. I nearly jumped out of my skin.

Now that makes me wonder whether she's still keeping you company, on some plane...

Oh that story about the kitty visiting your Boxer is so sweet I want to cry!!!

My RB girl Tiger used to have friends over my step-dad said. He said they'd come in and play and if they got too rowdy he'd tell Tiger to take her friends outside and they'd leave! I miss that cat!

I thought I had a visit from a ghost cat a couple of weeks ago. Was sitting in the living room where we have quite a few cat toys, including one of those round things with the scratching pad in the center and a ball that rolls around in a "moat" (for lack of a better word). No one had played with it in at least an hour, when all of a sudden the ball started rolling. Katie was on my lap at the time, and she was mesmerized by it. For some reason, I said, "Tucker?" and the ball stopped. (Tucker was the first cat we got after we got married; he's been gone for 22 years, but he was my baby boy and I still miss him)

Well, there's definately no cat flap, but I assume the cat must have got in somehow.

Oh, possibly, Oscar (who is an indoor/outdoor kitty - typical in Ireland) found it and brought it home? He does like the loft, I believe it's sort of his 'lair'.

I guess she misses you too.

It's nice that she gets along well with Easy and Heyu.

A few years back I had a visit from a ghost cat. I saw it go around the corner in the kitchen to the washer area. At the time we didn't have any cats and no others had gotten in. Was pretty creepy.

Wow.. all your Stories are interesting!!

We had a Ghost Cat for a while after our beauty ((#1... every Black Female Cat we got after her, mostly Fosters, we named Beauty.. Jack is actually our first Male Black Cat since King)) past away. She was all Black, Silky Fur and Loved to sleep on the Counters.. oh and she was Psycho.
So after she had Past away we would find Black Hairs all over the Counter... but the only other Cat we had was a Light Grey and White Tabby who never got on the Counters. The "Black Fur" appeared all the way up until we Moved out of that house.. about a Yr later.

That sounds really comforting, actually - if also more than a little strange.
