Are you shocked to hear this statement? I am 100% very sure that all cats could see ghosts ranging from the tiny pebble sized spirits to the human sized demons. I may have no proof to show you but there are many testimonials on the internet besides mine. Most of us are aware that dogs could see scary wandering ghosts around our houses and would howl loudly in long eerie pitch that could send all your pubic hair standing too. I believe that cats could see much more spirits than dogs.
I have watched the recent NHK Japan's documentary where they shared about their scientists are working towards making device sensors after observing whales, cats, dogs and elephants which have the strongest sensors to detect ahead of coming earthquakes, tsunamis and avalanches. Human's sensors are way so below these 4 sensitive animals. There were many testimonials being reported that just before the Aceh's tsunami hit, many people saw birds, cats and dogs were all running and flying in all chaotic directions in Aceh and Penang until Phang Nga Bay & Phuket in Thailand. Minutes and hours later, the big tremors hit and followed by the big tsunami waves.
If you have a cat at home as your pet, you might have observed on many occasions when your cat was lying or sleeping on the floor or shoe rack, it would suddenly pop its head upwards looking aimlessly on the ceiling or walls. As if it saw some tiny spirits floating zig zag on the wall or crawling on the floor. Your cat might chase it in circles while you watched in bewilderment and confusion. I was convinced at times because I myself saw the tiny spirits running away from the cat.
When I just finished high school and worked part time in Penang, I followed a very superstitious friend to see a powerful fortune teller in Ayer Itam. She had this psychic eyes and would ask customers to bring 6 fruits along. We suspected that she reared "little ghosts" who would feed on the 6 fruits while whispering to her ears all the answers to convince the customers. Her name was Ah Lan and would ask each customer to simply arrange the 6 fruits on the table in between her and the customer. When it came to my turn, she told me so many unbelievable predictions that I just laughed in disbelief. Believe me, all her predictions had 100% happened over the period of many years. She told me that my oldest sister lived in a big bungalow house and lined all her shoes from the ground floor's step all the way to the 2nd floor's level. That was so accurate and she had over 60 pairs of shoes. Then she said my sister would later move to a terrace house instead and later divorce her husband because she married too young to the wrong person. Her predictions really happened as they moved to Hong Kong and got divorced years later which I had blogged before.
Lastly, she told me that our house had a very funny looking dark grey cat which looked like a dog instead but it was actually a cat. I assured her that it was very true that we had a hairy dark grey Persian cat which my parents had just given away to a friend because they were travelling to Europe for a few months and knew that I would not be free to feed and accompany the cat. The fortune teller screamed out loudly and told me that we must bring that cat back at once to live in our house. She pointed out that our cat was a lucky cat that brought some fortunes besides chasing away all the spirits away. Wow!! I asked her how on earth could this useless and pampered Persian Cat chase away spirits?? She explained to me that some small spirits were frightened by the looks of hairy cats that appeared like Big Lions to them, in their dimension. I just nodded my head without fully believing it yet. My mother quickly called her friend and begged for the Persian Cat to be returned to us.
I used to fetch a Stage 4 cancer patient named Ishak to the hospital weekly for treatment and also to the Hospis daycare. He lived in a squatter wooden hut at the kampung area off Salak South area. We would often chat inside my car during the hour long journeys back and forth. Ishak told me that he was sure his house had lots of wandering spirits lurking inside at night. His cat at home was always busy chasing unseen objects around the house everyday. Ishak who sat on his wheelchair with a cigarette would watch the cat in amusement daily. That topic got us talking lengthy on the theory of cats seeing spirits and why the spirits were so tiny? Ishak had passed away not long after and I believe he knows the answer now.
When my sister was away in England and Sweden for a month, I had to take care of her 2 imported English cats at home in Mont Kiara everyday. I had to clean the smelly litter tray and food bowls 2 times a day!! That's because she said they would be traumatized living in a Cat Hotel and requested for my help. One night, I drove over there as usual and stepped inside her home. I noticed the air inside was densed and there was some unseen presence somewhere! I was not scared at all and looked at the 2 cats which were staring hard at me. As if they wanted to tell me there is a big ghost standing behind me. I decided to chant some mantras to purify the place and be free from any negative vibes. I chose one powerful mantra that would invite the most fierce looking Dharma Protector in the universe that would appear in the form of a very huge Lioness Deity. I started mumbling and chanting her name. She appeared instantly and hovered above in the whole air space. The 2 cats shrieked out loudly and bolted away from me, hiding under the beds in the bedroom! They must have really seen the fierce looking Lioness Deity with their own eyes and never came out to eat their fish dinner until I left an hour later. By then, I was very convinced that the cats could see all kinds of spirits, ghosts and even deities.
So love your cats and understand that they may not catch a mouse so effectively but their 'lion' features are scary to millions of tiny wandering spirits that are crawling inside your homes. These spirits are lost and wander into homes to shelter or suck the energy of the occupants. If you cannot help to deliver them to better realms, then your cat might shoo them away from sucking all your 'chi' energy which might weaken one's health and luck. Your cat might bring you abundance fortunes like the famous beliefs all over Japan. Keep more cats please! More cats, more money come!
