cats detect/protect us from spirits?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
so this thread may come off strange. i am going to give you as much detail as i can.
i have 2 cats, 1 that is highly attached to me- Peaches and 1 that is independent- Bonnie. they are both 3 years & 6 months old (sisters).

first i will tell you a little about them..
Peaches like i said is pretty attached to me. she talks to me all the time, she follows me around, she comes to me when i call her, but she isnt too lovey. like she doesnt give out kisses (hardly ever), but she will rub against your leg, etc. she lays with me & my fiance in the bed at night but if one of us move, usually she will just get up and go somewhere else. so most of the time, she is only on the bed with us for a few hours out of the night.

Bonnie is miss priss, doesnt follow me around, definitely doesnt come when i call her but she is more affectionate than Peaches(she will always give kisses while in your lap, on her terms of course). she doesnt sleep in the room as often as Peaches, and if she does its usually not for a long period of time.

when both of my cats want to sleep with us, they will find room to sleep in the middle, there is usually like a dip between our legs or something. but there is once a week (it seems like), where Peaches wont sleep between us but to the right of me on the bed, next to my chest and she will curl up with my arm (i sleep on the right side of the bed, facing the bathroom- btw ive had weird feelings about my bathroom). usually when she does this, i happen to not sleep well at all, i wake up a numerous times through out the night, and when i look at her i see that she is still there curled up with my arm, but she is not sleeping. she is just sitting there watching/looking at something. lastnight when she did this, she actually gave me kisses the times when i woke up. obviously if i dont sleep well, i move around a lot and everytime i move she will re-adjust with how i am laying. the nights that Peaches does this, Bonnie is never in the room.

other than that, my cats have always been playful. they like to climb the walls, and run through the apartment like crazy kitties chasing each other. ive had these cats since they were babies, but my fiance hasnt been around the whole time ive had them, so im thinking maybe this is why Peaches is "protecting" me.

about my bathroom, there have been a few odd things that have happened but nothing too creepy. when i sleep, i have a really hard time facing my back to the bathroom. it makes me really uncomfortable so usually i will lay on my back facing up, or actually facing the bathroom. i just get a really eerie feeling about my bathroom, mostly its not throughout the apartment.

i tried to be detailed but if you have questions please ask.

i just wanted to know if anyone has experienced this type of thing?

This is interesting!!! I'd love to know what "odd things" have happened!!!???

Have you tried shutting the door to the bathroom at night???? I used to have a problem with having my back to my bedroom door (unless it was shut). If it was open I could never sleep. So I usually shut it. I think I was always afraid that if someone broke in I might not hear them until they are right above me. At least with the door shut Id probably hear it open. LOL. The things that go through our heads! Anyway. It made me feel more secure and sleep better with the door shut.

As far as cats detecting spirits - I think it is highly possible!!! Though I have never had any experiences like yours.

as far as odd things, there have been black marks on the bathroom floor and neither my fiance or i, wear shoes into the bathroom.
both of my cats seem to be looking at things in the air, when nothing is there.
peaches will come to the bathroom when either one of us are using it, like she just wants to be in there while we are in there.
ive noticed her getting more and more attached to me at the apartment, but when i take them to my parents house she isnt as attached.
there are weird noises, and the feeling of being watched or that something is just there.
the temp seems to adjust itself. we have it on a schedule, certain times through out the day it goes to specific tempature.
there are times were my fiance and i wake up in the middle of the night at the same exact time.
i mean, its nothing real obvious, but just little things that stand out to us. things that could even possibly have another explaination.

i know the whole thing seems kind of crazy but i believe in paranormal stuff. some people just dont but ive experienced paranormal things. i just find it so strange that my cat would sit in the same spot for 8 hours and curl up in my arm, thats just not typical for her. she didnt start doing that until the past few months. we've only been at this apartment since May, so 5 months?

and i havent closed the bathroom door because i'm afraid that would make my feeling worse. i have heard that animals sense more than what we can, so i dont know if maybe my cat is trying to tell me something, and maybe thats why she has started to become so attached to me. i do know when we are laying in bed and she is curled in my arm, there is a mutual feeling of safty and protection between Peaches and myself. does that make sense?

In a same order of idea, one of my cats (My Geisha who passed away 8 years ago ) once seemed to "read through my nightmare"; it was eerie...

I vaguely recall that I was dreaming that one on my neighbors abused one of my cats (kicked it or something to that effect). In my dream, I beat up that man and woke up with Geisha sitting on my chest, purring loudly and licking my chin; it was as if she was telling me "Thank you for defending me!"

Sage is cleansing, was used by several Native American tribes for this purpose. Get some fresh sage stems - some supermarkets like Wegmans sells fresh herbs in bunches. Let the stems air dry, then burn. Walk through the bathroom, "fanning" the smoke so it is wafted throughout the room. Might want to use sage in rest of the apartment, just for completeness.

If you like, speak to whatever spirits might be there, telling them that it is time for them to move on, not that you are chasing them away but now you are living here and it is time for them to leave.

Yes, yes, yes!

When I was living at my old place we had three pets (my dog, my roommate's dog and my other roommate's cat). We would constantly find them all sitting staring into a corner or random spot, sometimes barking. We would also have weird things go on in our kitchen - dishes would clink around in the sink or cupboards, things would be moved, we'd hear chairs scraping along the floor, sometimes food would be moved from the fridge or cupboard to the counter (that was a pain!) and once the kitchen sink was filled with water like someone was telling us to do the dishes. NONE of us had done any of this, we were all good friends and had been living across the street together for the year before. It was only when we moved into that place that this stuff started. We would all be in the living room and hear the stuff going on in the kitchen. Most of the time, if we yelled "Stop!" or "Cut it out!" the noises would stop for a few hours.

I talked to a pet psychic about 6 months after the stuff started happening, they did a lot of general questioning with my dog to prove things to me (what her favourite toy is, her favourite treat, etc), then they had her describe what she was staring at in the house that we couldn't see. The description fit my grandmother to a T! The psychic asked Sadie not to bark at the lady anymore but told her she could bark at anyone else she saw and she didn't bark at all after.

Lucky Luke : maybe this is more of a "i know you are scared, dont worry" kind of thing? i feel ridiculous, like this isnt possibly happening so maybe its just me.


Catapault : my fiance mentioned this also. you dont think this will make it worse?

nerdrock : i do see my cats staring at nothing, and it gives me the chills. you have definitely experienced more than i have with random things! and wow about the pet psychic! that is so crazy. have you had anything happen since then? did you figure out if it was your grandmother causing all that ruckus?



so this morning i felt the feeling again. when my fiance was leaving for work i called for peaches and she came and slept with me again until it was time to get up for work, although i dont feel like i really slept. i just got that feeling again, of a creepy presence. but she layed with me the whole time and even gave me more kisses.
i think i will try this sage thing tonight. ill have to do some research on it.

I hate October. But at least there's not as many, so far, this year...

Personal experience - cats don't really notice anything more than humans (who are paying attention) do. Usually I've notice something before or at the same time since my eye sight is better than a cats.
The average cat, if spooked, is going to leave you to deal with anything yourself. So will a lot of dogs.


Now a quick question: How much ghost related shows have you been watching on tv lately?

we really dont watch many ghost shows/movies, but we watch a lot of drama, some horror. usually dealing with infidelity & murders. a lot of lifetime movies too.
do you believe in paranormal activity? i do see what you may be suggesting, that what i watch is influencing what i think is around me? the fear is so real though, do you think it could influence it that much?

Yes, I lived in an old house for a little over 10 years that was haunted. But I'm a logical person and not every bump, creak, or odd pet behavior means (or meant) it was a ghost. We occasionally had mice and even a rat get in the attic once and it was an old house with it's share of weird house noises.

This happens every single year around this time. Someone who has been living in a house or apartment for X number of years suddenly thinks their home is haunted because of a few things that upon deeper inspection can often be explained away. The problem is people watch or hear stuff about ghosts and that humans have such great imaginations. We can't really help it. It's like a person watching a scary movie home alone - suddenly every little noise is someone trying to break into the home.

And yes, I'm susceptible to it, too! Though not as much anymore.

You may be hearing some odd noises from your bathroom at night or maybe even the play of shadows from it bothers you. Your mind then connects a few dots that may not be there.
Mind you, I don't like mirrors in rooms (bathroom is ok) and don't like having, say, a closet door open. I don't think there's anything there, I just simply do not like the play of light and shadow resulting from both - it creeps me out.

If you truly think there is something there, set up a video camera facing the bathroom or a digital recorder in the bathroom. You may not catch anything paranormal, but maybe you can figure out what about it bothers you.
Also, you could put a nightlight in the bathroom.

If your apartment is older, there could be a wiring issue that's bothering you.

ahhh i night light is a great idea!!!!

ive never lived in a house i felt was haunted, but i have noticed that ive always had this feeling about a bathroom. which i didnt start to feel that way until i was probably 16 (im 23 now) and when i would walk into my parents bathroom i would sometimes get the urge to run out, sometimes in my own bathroom, sometimes it could have been another place in the house, but mostly the bathroom (this is when my parents built a house & we lived in the country, 25 miles from a store and a neighbor was 4 miles down the road). so since then i have just carried this around with me, maybe? but the bathroom REALLY does creep me out. maybe when i did the "candy man" thing when i was 10 has scared me for life
maybe peaches is sitting with me because she knows im afraid of something, but not because she senses there is something paranormal? my cats do notice my feelings, so maybe thats more realistic but idk. like i said, the bathroom really creeps me out. you have to walk by my bathroom to get out of the apartment & this morning when i had to leave i literally ran outside because i had this black hole in my gut. i dont think the apartments are really that old, may have been built in the 90's. my roommate used to feel like there was something going on in her room also but she stopped coming to the apartment (litterally, shes hardly ever there) so i dont know about that situation anymore.

i do agree with our imaginations, when we watch a movie or CSI and people are breaking in etc, i do begin to feel that fear of that happening BUT it doesnt last longer than a night.
if there is paranomal stuff going on, we would have to buy a camcorder to find out. i am going to get a night light though


i will mention that in my old apartment i also had this thing going on BUT there was actually real paranormal activity.

occasions such as..
1) i felt pressure like someone sat down next to me on the couch,
2) i lived with another guy at the time and you cant lock the deadbolt from the outside, and one morning when i left before he did, when he woke up the deadbolt was locked
3) we saw a full cup of milk move about 6 inches across a dinner tray, totally creepy.

there were a few other misc. things but those are what i remember distinctly. i think that spirits are attracted to negative things? i was in a very bad relationship with that guy, so maybe thats why it was there. i havent experienced anything like that since then.

I bet it's just lingering bathroom issues (that sounds weird ). As for Peaches, well, my cats follow me around the house. They would follow me into the bathroom if I let them.

I wonder, though, since you say you wake up around the same time at night - could you have a neighbor that gets up to use the bathroom every night? (any older neighbors?) It could be that after not having people using the plumbing as much later at night that a neighbor suddenly getting up and flushing is causing the plumbing to make a bit of noise. (it shouldn't if the plumbing is in perfect condition...)
Try paying more attention to noises around your apartment and how they carry.


The house I lived in was pretty obvious. I and a few other people actually seen shadow figures in it. These were solid shadows, no light passed through them, and try as I might I could not recreate that in any way. I was scared at first, since I was 9 when we moved in, but over the years as I got older and used to it I gradually just ended up feeling more annoyed by it's pranks than anything. No one was harmed, there was nothing to fear. If there really is something going on, remember that you really do not have anything to be afraid of. Instead see it as a chance to investigate and learn.

the people that live above me, i have never seen them but yikes, they sure are foot heavy! maybe that is what wakes me. i will start to pay more attention to the noises, try to learn instead of scare myself. my other cat isnt very attached to me, she is more lovey with my fiance. peaches is the runt, and she is seriously attached to my hip.

that is way creepy about the solid shadows, i have never seen that, ever. you know, i dont know why some people- including myself, are so afraid of paranormal stuff. i am creeped out and nothings even happen to me other than restless nights. im curious to know what kind of pranks were played on you?

It's human nature to fear the unknown.
Things it would do - move stuff, open/shut doors (it locked me out of the house one time), turn off/on lights (with the way the upstairs was wired this meant suddenly being plunged into complete darkness while trying to climb up the stairs), it would knock on the car windows when my bf (now husband) would drop me off, and that last summer I lived there it would tap on my bedroom walls and ceiling. It would tap for a couple of hours while I was trying to sleep - you stop getting spooked at some point and just get annoyed/mad.

Meanwhile the family pets would either ignore it or leave the room. Once one of our dogs did start growling when a weird noise started up and the tv started quickly flipping channels, she and the cat that had been begging for food (I was eating and watching tv upstairs) ran off downstairs and left me. I still remember... the tv stopped flipping channels on Rikki Lake and there was a bang from another part of the room. I'm not sure what message it was trying to get through. I wasn't amused since I missed part of the show I was watching.
(If you want more details of that night... I was 11:47, Saturday, and I was eating left over pepper steak - I have a freakish memory sometimes. )

Just because we don't see spirits doesn't mean they aren't around. I've always believed that animals had that extra sense like some children do that enables them to see things we don't see and understand things we never will.
I was laying on my couch watching TV a few days after my sister, Mary Lou, died. My cat Patches was laying with me. She suddenly jumped up and began watching something (or someone) walking back and forth behind the couch. I know she saw something--I watched her eyes follow this thing intently. It had her full attention. It went on for maybe a full minute. Then she watched it as it left the room. Patches settled back down next to me. I looked at her and said, "Did Mary Lou just visit us Patches?"
So yes I believe these things.
post #16 of 29
Just a thought for everyone, for future threads and even if you do believe in this stuff. If the OP is getting spooked to be home (especially if they're home alone), it's best not to feed their fears much. This is one reason why I've been down playing it. Whether there's something there or not isn't the main issue, I just don't want silly_goose afraid to be in her home.

strange_wings : thank you, for trying to calm my nerves i really do appreciate it. lastnight & this morning i didnt feel any fear, and i hope that it stays that way because my fiance is getting moved to another shift.. where he will be home really late. so i do need to find a way to feel comfortable in my own home.

Bellaandme : i do agree that animals can sense/see things that we aren't able to, i just wasnt sure if what was happening could possibly be me over-tuning into what things might really be. i felt confused because sometimes the fear is there, sometimes its not. i do believe that something is there that i cant see, but maybe its not as frightening when im not afraid of it. so, therefore i have to understand that whatever is there isnt going to hurt me

I Know from my faith and others in my faith that cats have always "been the eyes to the other world" so yes your cat could be seeing something, but please don't use sage until you know what you are dealing with exactly. Sage will irritate some spirits but I would suggest using Lavender, it calms almost anything upset (including your cat). Do some research on your building or your apartment exactly, find out what this could possibly be. Your cats may be trying to protect you (according to the Wiccan Faith cats are also the protectors from the spirit realm because they can see and interact with that realm). Your local courthouse or library would be your best bets, also talk to your neighbors and see if anything bad or weird has happened in you apartment before.

We had the same issues in our home when we moved in because of a suicide in the bathroom, but after using lavender things returned to normal and the cats stop being over protective of us (I miss them sleeping in the bed they were warm lol)

yeah there really isnt ANYTHING about these apartments online, when i first wanted to move in i couldnt find any information about them. so that was a little strange. suicide in the bathroom... yikes. that is creepy. when you say lavendar... like a candle or something???
peaches does infact keep me warm, my fiance gets jealous sometimes because i cuddle up with her and not him. the other night she actually snuggled up with me under the covers. it was sweet
post #21 of 29
Lavender incense, candles, the flower itself. Anything, personally we did all three, but that's because I LOVE the smell of it. But yes your cats (from my experience alone) will be very clingy and affectionate, enjoy it! I miss having my babies in bed with us but now that the issue is taken care of they are having more fun being with each other and tramping through the house like only cats can. They will be really sweet and try to make you as "safe" as they can in their eyes. They are doing what a loyal dog wishes they could do but in their own way.

I don't think I saw anyone mention this, but perhaps the problem in your bathroom is a high electromagnetic field. All electrically charged objects have an electromagnetic field and some objects can give off stronger field. So maybe something in your bathroom is giving off a high EMF.

I bring this up because some people are sensitive to EMF and it can cause feeling of being watched or even seeing and hearing things that are not really there. I'm sure if humans can be sensitive to that sort of thing then out kitty cats probably are too. I'm far from an expert of any of this but the whole EMF thing popped into my head when you mentioned it was mostly in your bathroom. I'm sure you could find a MUCH better explanation of it online somewhere.

Anyways I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in for what its worth. I'm also a believer in the paranormal but to me it wounds like the whole EMF thing might be a factor for you. Personally, I'd rather deal with an electrical problem then a ghost problem.


Oh I just saw that strange_wings touched on this subject a bit!
post #23 of 29
I agree with WiccanKittyLove. I wouldn't use sage yet either and if you do have a spirit, be nice to it. Ask it nicely to move on.

I believe that all animals can see things and know things that we don't. Their senses are just so much greater than ours. Pandora always seems to read my mind and Lilly is extremely protective, even though she's still very young.

Totally not related to anything paranormal: The other day, my husband wasn't feeling well. He went to lay down in bed and fell asleep. He was so quiet that Lilly forgot he was home. (My husband is not home very often. He works long hours) All of a sudden my husband coughed and Lilly was instantly on alert. Her tail got huge and she started growling. She slowly stalked down the hall to "get" the intruder. I told my husband that he needed to wake up and talk to his kitten before she attacked him. LOL
post #24 of 29
You keep saying "since we moved in" how long have you been living there? I agree it could be EMFs screwing with you and the cats. It takes cats a bit to adjust to some EMF turbulances and perhaps this is whats going on, they dont understand and they want to be with you. But honestly, check that out first before you go and try to banish a spirit (which could turn out bad if you have no idea what you are doing) and even if you do have a spirit you might be able to live at peace with it, and sometimes it might come in handy...



I lived in this old house in Akron OH with my twin sister before i met my husband, we had a spirit of an old lady in the house. We know this because we seen her many times. My sister has 4 children and one night we were running late and the kids went to bed before we got home because "the nice old babysitter said it was bedtime and she tucked us in" The children's father had been out in the garage working on the car and lost track of time, but the ghost didn't and she tucked the boys away for bed for us. She also answered the door for our elderly neighbor when he come over and he left because he had know the lady in life and was shaken up so bad. But she was a kind soul who just wanted to help with the children. My sister and her family still live there.

I think I'm lucky that my cat never made me feel scared about spirits, Charlie doesn't want to sleep in my bed on the first few hours of our sleep but I always find him peacefully sleeping beside me when I wake up in the middle of the night.

I do believe animals can see/sense spirits.

I've lived in my house all my life, and for 1 year on and off we kept seeing a ghost cat. We never saw it before, and never saw it again. Lynxx was here at the time. Lynxx didn't respond to it. It never seemed to appear with Lynxx in the room at the same time. The cat looked just like Lynxx.

I woke up saw "Lynxx" laying on my desk where he knows he's not allowed. I jumped out of bed, went to pick him up to get him off of there. Only when I reached for him he just faded. I ran out of my room and Lynxx was sound asleep under the Christmas tree.

We were going to visit relatives in another state for a week. We dropped Lynxx off at the place where he was being boarded. My mother saw "Lynxx's" shadow on the wall jump onto her bed. She felt the weight of him on the bed. But when she sat up to pat him, he wasn't there. We told her we already dropped him off.

My father doesn't believe in ghosts. Laughs at me because I do. I had Lynxx at the bottom of my bed sound asleep. I heard my father talking to him. I told him Lynxx was with me. He jumped out of his bed ran into my room saw Lynxx sleeping. He insisted he saw "Lynxx" at the bottom of his bed. I only ever saw my father that afraid 1 other time.

The place where my mother works used to be an old mill. We had to stop there to print something on the weekend. We were the only 1's there. Midnight was with us because he just got his claws clipped. I carried Midnight around giving him a tour. There's a room in back that I've never had a problem being in, but my mother thinks it's creepy. Anyway I started down the hallway towards that room. I felt Midnight stiffen in my arms. That's when I heard what sounded like footsteps coming out of that room, towards the hallway we were in. I got the impression of a man walking out. I just turned and ran back to my mother's office as fast as I could, then rushed her along so we could get out of there. I told her in the car. Midnight sensed something first, he stiffened before I sensed anything.

So I do believe animals can see/sense things.

my kitten does the same thing. when hes awake he likes to play and chase so anytime we move around the apartment he is hopping after us, paws a-swingin'. one day i came out of our bedroom (which faces the kitchen) and he was sitting in the middle of the kitchen floor as still as can be in the dark, just staring at the wall..i turned on the lights and it didnt phase him, so i said jericho what are you doin? and he didnt even flinch. so i walked over to him while talking to him and he still would not move, it wasnt until i was standing with my feet on either side of him that he finally looked up at me and then he ran into the living room and started playing like normal..it was odddd. and now from time to time he will just sit in our kitchen doorway and stare at completely nothing. he spends most of his time in there too, he will just walk in circles around the whole kitchen meowing and squeeking..its too weird lol. ive always thought our apartment was kinda creepy though, but so far i havent experienced anything so maybe its nothing and he's just weird haha

Power, frequency, and range matters. A fridge magnet won't stick unless almost touching for example. And if worried, the A/C powerlines in the home are more of a concern than your electronics. As someone else mentioned, EMF is also never subject to turbulent flow anymore than lightwaves. Thats physically impossible.

The nocebo effect (like placebo, but means 'I harm' rather than 'I please') is very well documented though. If you believe that EMFs from electronics can give you headaches for example, in some individuals they can manifest as such. In short, the more you focus thought on something, the more real it will become to that individual, even to the point of a physical response or hallucination in some cases.

BTW, I was recently reminded of this thread. I was sitting in the dark reading, when suddenly both of my cats were intently focused on something I couldn't see. Again and again, I couldn't figure out what they were so enthralled by. Started even getting chirps and trills and some pacing. I admit it did kind of freak me out as there was nothing there. Finally though I realized that my bookmark had a bit of chrome on the top that was reflecting light, but the reflection disappeared when I moved and only returned when I went back to the same posture!

Hi. I'm Vanessa. I have a 5 month old kitten named Baby or she kind of adopted that name herself because I always called her that lol. Baby just now was trying to protect me from some spirit by cuddling me and really trying to keep my attention by biting my fingers and also kissing them affectionately. Except she kept stopping to look at this one particular area in my room so she kept trying to get closer to me until she was practically on my neck. Mind you, she barely likes to cuddle, she will only cuddle on her own terms but she's still affectionate to me. Her mom Diamond also has a story to tell. Diamond or Baby was and still is always with me during this weird off time. Her mom Diamond, she tried to warn me one time about a very violent spirit that somehow got into my home. She was constantly trying to get out but didn't want to leave me alone in the house with this entity that I didn't see but I'm a sensitive so I felt it and I wasn't going to let it take my home away from me. My cat changed her mind and stayed in the house with me regardless of what she saw. I think i'm developing a psychic ability but I don't know that for sure because I just learned to feel with my body and this is where it gets creepy. In order to feel what my Diamond felt, I put my hands on the wall and I felt some intense vibrations that were negative. Instead of feeling it only with my hands, I somehow ended up feeling it with my body too and I felt some negative emotions in the atmosphere. The place where that entity couldn't enter was my bedroom. This get's weirder. I felt the vibrations then I started to hear them. It sounds like a washer in the rinse cycle but the washer wasn't going and the dryer wasn't going either. They were clean of clothes. Now this experience should tell you to never underestimate your beloved cat's abilities because I have two too. They protect me spiritually and I have dogs that protect me physically too. Know this that cat's are spiritual protectors and I havent been without one since I could remember. I've always loved cats. I didn't know why up until that time. My instincts are stronger now and my abilities are so and so. It's not really enough to say that I'm A Psychic yet but I hope that my instincts will be enough because I've tested them from July 9th all the way to October 2nd. They passed each time and has not failed me once. Every time something bad was about to meet me somewhere, my instincts will affect me through digestive problems. My stomach will bug the **** out of me until I take a different route or direction which I do now. My job is a fine example of how I came to trust my instincts because the manager was bad news. My instincts told me so, so I stayed away from her and I had to quit my job. It wasn't going to get better. Ever since I quit my job, my problems went away and lately, I havent heard or seen anything in awhile like spirits. They don't want me knowing that they are there in my home still so they kept their presence in the dark. Baby busted them. That's when she kept bugging me and behaved strangely but then I understood that she just told me that there was an uninvited spirit in my home. She's calm now. I told that spirit that it needed to go and not come back and it did because Baby is calm after I did that.  Diamond and Baby are my best back ups and they are my eyes to see what I can't see right now. I'm kind of a closed book to the spirit realm but I need to get back onto the horse in order to protect myself and those around me. I'm not going to pull "Ghost Adventures" or anything like that, instead, I'm going to reopen myself just enough so I could see what they are up to and what their intentions are. If they are up to nothing good, then i'll send them away. The only one that is invited is my guardian angel which I know is there. Here it is. Here I am telling you that cat's may be true guardians of the anctient Egyptian underworld or perhaps, guardians that simply live amongst us for their own joy of protecting your soul from bad energy. Do you believe now that your cat loves you and is guarding you while you sleep? because mine do. If you want to talk more, feel free to contact me. I'm no expert but I think I have enough experience to know this.
