I’ve always had cats. I love cats. I also love how sensitive to energy they are. A cat will come and sit on you if you’re sad. They’ll automatically approach a person who dislikes cats, just in case they can change their mind! Cats are super-sensitive.

I’ve had cats all my life, including when I had my very first earthbound spirit encounter back when I was 21. There’s a reason cats are associated with spirituality in Egypt and were the favoured companion of witches! In my experience, cats definitely see more than humans.

Cats are also super sensitive to energy. I am a Reiki master but have never felt drawn to do it as a career. I’ve only ever offered it to loved ones and friends. When I was in my late 20’s I was in a share house with two gorgeous women and two cats, one of which had debilitating arthritis. This lovely cat was on medication and was not in pain but she was obviously deteriorating with her illness. By the time I met her her paws were bent into gnarled clubs. I gave her Reiki treatments often and she really enjoyed them. When she’d received enough she’d get up and hobble off.

Whenever I gave someone a Reiki treatment as soon as I’d ‘log on’ with my Reiki prayer and symbols I would hear this cat’s heavy steps on the floorboards coming from the other side of the house – racing to us as fast as she could! That’s when I understood she could feel the Reiki energy kick in! She could feel it enter my treatment room and came as if her life depended on it!

She’d park herself on top of the person receiving the treatment (lucky I only gave treatments to loved ones and friends!!) or muscle her way in between the person and my hands! She just couldn’t get enough Reiki.

But wait, that’s not all! Cats can also see way more than us!

Cat’s Eyes

Cats are crepuscular (this means that they are most active at dusk and dawn) and their eyesight is a reflection of that. They have six to eight times as many cells in their eyes for viewing things in dim light as humans do. That allows them to see much more in settings where humans would be almost completely in the dark. Their superior night vision also allows them to better capture motion in the dark. Cats also have better peripheral vision.

So, can cats see paranormal and supernatural activity that the human eye can’t possibly see?

Science Catches Up

Mainstream science recognises that cats, dogs and other animals can see more frequencies than humans. The scientific explanation is that cats and dogs see UV (ultra-violet) light that the human retina can’t.

All mammals don’t have lenses similar to humans as previously believed. The human eye is incapable of seeing UV rays but scientific evidence suggests many mammals can. According to the latest research, many animals have ultra-violet vision, for example, most amphibians and reptiles, fish, birds and a few mammals, like rodents, moles, bats and marsupials.

UV light is the wave length beyond the visible light from red to violet that humans can see. Humans have a lens that blocks UV from reaching the retina.

This opens up a whole new world of possibly way beyond what we can perceive…

Do you see where I’m going with this and why it’s so exciting?

As a psychic, I see things other people can’t. I see Spirit. I do not just go into Spirit for my work to access the Akashic Records and communicate with people’s Spirit Guides. I also see a lot of paranormal activity in my home, particularly earthbound spirits. My home is a bit of a thoroughfare of activity with earthbound spirits passing through regularly. It’s ok. My children understand. If they’re pestered they send them to me. Usually, they just pass through, and onwards on their next right place of expression.

Have you noticed your cat acting strangely?

They see things even I can’t see. Sometimes my cat will meow and hiss, and look startled as if teased! They’ll even start batting at the air!

In my first earthbound spirit encounter back when I was 21, I lived with a very active earthbound spirit for a year. My cat, Cass, often let me know when the earthbound was present. I would get a look from Cass, hair bristling on her back and I’d know we had company! Cass was always very wary of her. This earthbound spirit was not particularly friendly and seemed to enjoy freaking us out – Cass included!

Cats are a fantastic warning system for paranormal activity! Watching their response also tells you volumes of information about the type of spirit present.

Is your cat happy to see them? Yes – they are known, familiar or friendly spirits. No – they are unknown, unfamiliar or unfriendly spirits. If they start hissing and spitting you know they are definitely not friendly and your furry friend is trying to protect you!

Have your pets acted strangely before? Have they followed something unseen around the room or stared transfixed at the ceiling? Has your pet hissed and spat at nothing at all or reacted like they’ve been taunted by something you can’t see? Please share your experiences in the comments section below.
