And everyone needs a scapegoat, lol.
Oh I blame the nightly "clunk" of one of my kitchen cupboard doors on a ghost. There is no other logical explanation for it!

I don't actually believe in ghosts, but I lived in a house with a ghost cat and a ghost mouse. You would see them out of the corner of your eye. No, the cat didn't chase the mouse. My exDH "saw" them too.

I lived in a house (brand new, but spookily enough, built on the site of an old graveyard!) << seriously, it was! And one of my cats (Crackle) spent many an hour staring at a blank piece of wall for no reason I could think of other than he was seeing something I wasn't! (It creeped me out that Crackle did that!)

That is pretty wild Whiskas. I think it would be pretty cool to share that experience, but then I remember I'm afraid of such things. Wow.

I thought all cats saw things we can't see.

I had two cats at the time - both exactly the same age and living with me from 8 weeks. Only Crackle did the "staring" thing.

My current cat, Burt, stares at things sometimes, but that is because he is a proficient hunter and brings mice in. He plays with them by letting them go to hide in the flat....

I think Burt may be evil.

He is very sweet to us humans - he lets us live at least....

Dang, even down to the American Indian ancestry... amazing. Fascinating life.
I took advantage of every opportunity that came my way. I always considered it as a way to teach my kids, that Eastie is not the center of the world. My second husband was a commercial fisherman and we followed his job. Texas, Washington, California, Hawaii, Boston, etc. There was something to teach my kids some of the history of the country that didn't make it into the text books of their school. And I had a blast doing it. So did my kids.

It was here before me, so what are you going to do anyway.
I have never heard of any ghost that killed anyone.
