My cats have been acting strangely this morning. It happens every once in awhile, but since I recently wrote about energy, I thought perhaps someone could give me a little insight. Please?
This morning, our older cat was quietly sitting on the couch when suddenly, without warning, she jumped up as if she had been startled by something and then raced off the couch, skid across the floor and out of the room at full speed. It was as it someone had poked her while she was quietly relaxing and then chased her. But there was nobody near her.
I was stunned by her reaction. At first, I thought it was that she realized she had to go to the bathroom right now. Sometimes that urge happens to all of us. So I followed her, but she ran straight into my bedroom and hid herself under the bed.
I didn’t see anything. I sat on my bed for a few minutes, trying to gauge if there were something more, something unseen that perhaps she saw or felt and I did not. But I wasn’t aware of anything. After a few minutes, she came out from underneath the bed and I carried her baby style in my arms, back into the family room so I could finish my coffee.
Back on the couch, she nestled next to me. She wouldn’t close her eyes to cat nap as she usually does. She stayed alert. Every once in awhile, her ears perked up, but I heard only silence. I looked around the room, but saw nothing amiss.
Our other kitty who is younger was already sleeping somewhere else. However, about an hour later, she moseyed into the family room. Suddenly she started batting at something unseen. It was as if someone was playing with her. She ran around in circles, jumping up occasionally and then raced out of the room. Two minutes later, she ran back into the room to repeat the playing and raced out again. It was such a peculiar sight. As I watched her, I wondered if there was someone or something unseen by me in the room. The older cat watched expectantly from her perch next to me, but she didn’t move.
I’d like to think that whatever caused the girls (as I call the cats) to act so strangely was a kind energy, acting playfully with them. Because afterwards they both settled down as if nothing had happened.
Do any pet owners out there have any similar experiences? The unexplained noises have been happening again that I’ve written about here. I thought it was the change of seasons with the heating system, but now I’m not so sure. Truly, the girls acted as if they were interacting with something that I couldn’t see. Has this ever happened in your home?
Pets do that especially cats. Heard alot of people say that.
Glad I’m not the only one! Thank you for your comment!
I had a dog that used to suddenly look up to a corner in our living room from a sound sleep, then lie back down. So strange.
It is so strange Bobbi! Thanks for sharing…I guess we’ll always wonder unless our pets can tell us what’s going on!
When we had cats, they were like that and our dogs are like that too. Sometimes Link will start growling at something in the middle of the night when nothing we can see or hear is there. Cats have always been described as “half in, half out” or able to walk between worlds and I think dogs are much the same from our experience. Our dogs will just start barking at something and we can’t figure out what they are barking at. Then we will see somebody moving around at the very end of our road! Our world is a lot noisier and disruptive than it once was even if we as humans aren’t bothered by it. There is infrasound and electromagnetic fields – sound so low a human can’t hear or sense them but a cat, dog or other animal can. Some of the reactions of your girls could be paranormal related or just them reacting to a sound far off or at such a low frequency we can’t sense it. Hope this helps some!

The cat ear is designed to hear a multitude of sounds. Because of the open design and the ability to move them nearly 180 degrees, a cat has a superior ability to hear sounds, even those that are quite far away. For instance, a cat is able to hear a mouse rustling in brush about 30 feet away.
A cat’s hearing range is between 45 to 64,000 in hertz, compared to a human’s hearing range of 64 to 23,000. The significant difference on both ends of the spectrum means that they can hear sounds that aren’t detectable by the human ear.
I love when you write to me Saymber because you always teach me and I’m an eager learner! Wow it’s so interesting! Thanks for sharing and for taking the time to send the link. I think you are right that they are just so much more attuned to those frequencies that we aren’t even aware of at all! I hope you have a lovely day. Thanks for stopping by!
Misifusa I feel the same about you. You have such a gentle, loving and positive outlook on life and it helps me to read your posts when I’m veering off the path of heart centered living. I’m glad you found the info useful and learned something. Cats, and all animals are just amazing to me. I can imagine our world is so noisy and chaotic at times to them! Hugs to you and hope your day is lovely too. Thank you for all you are.
We have looked after my daughters cat a couple of times. He would do that. Quietly resting and then BAM leaping away to hide in the guest room. We live in a new house so I doubt there are presences there but there may well be something in the ground we are built on…some native presence perhaps. I don’t know.
Oh wow Anne! Native presence sounds so intriguing! I’m glad I’m not the only one with cats who act in unexplained ways!
A few weeks ago, upon waking up, my husband came from his bedroom to mine (we have to sleep in separate bedrooms due to snoring, and both of us have spine troubles) and asked what was wrong with Opie. I told him that I didn’t know what he was talking about.
He explained that the cat was sitting in his bedroom, afraid of coming out. Her eyes were pure black and ears perked. Finally, I brought her to the kitchen to eat her breakfast during which the whole time, she kept turning toward MY bedroom, she was terrified! Which then, terrified me.
I thought maybe there was a snake in there, or some giant monster under my bed. I was scared!
I set about sorting through storage boxes I had in my bedroom, things moved from the living room while we are still in reparation-mode after last year’s ceiling flood. Most of the boxes’ contents were repacked and set on the front porch for Habitat for Humanity pickup. I found no snakes, no bugs, nothing weird. And then I started worrying about ghosts!
I don’t recall ‘when’ Opie was finally okay with coming back into my bedroom, I think it took a couple of days. I still don’t know what caused this incredible fear.
Wow! Thanks for sharing Swoosie! I wonder what it was that Opie was so frightened by? I’m glad that she has relaxed again and is back to being in the bedroom! I really wish we could speak cat so that they could tell us…or maybe it’s better that we don’t know…
No kidding, maybe it’s better that we don’t know! 🙂
I agree! LOL
Some in my family saw my dog barking at a blank wall. Other saw him barking at a small green orb. Our parrots often get started by things we can’t see.
I agree with you Karel! I think they can see things we can’t and are aware of stuff in other dimensions. A small green orb! Wow! How interesting! I’ve only seen white ones…
Our cats will do that. They will also stare intently at “something” behind me (which creeps me out) when there’s nothing there. They can perceive sounds and motion that we don’t pick up on. Then again, they might just be messing with us.
I think they are really seeing something I’m not. But I’d love to think that those little furry kids are messing with me too! LOL
I used to think it was only my dogs but it’s nice to read that others have this experience too. In my last house, my dogs would start barking at empty space and when I’d walk over to see what was going on, I’d pass through an area that was very cold and then the temperature would return to normal. I had cats years ago but was so busy I wouldn’t have noticed odd behavior from them. We recently adopted 2 kittens so I’m sure the fun will begin soon. For me and my daughters, we will hear random voices at times – but I have a lot of antiques so I like to think it’s ancestors and others visiting with us.
Kim, thanks for sharing! That’s amazing! The cold feeling could certainly be other-wordly energy and the bunch of antiques and voices, well, that certainly makes me think the same. As for the two kittens – I can only tell you that I feel sheer joy for you! I wish you all the best and can’t wait to watch them as they grow up! Keep posting their adorable photos! They are sure to bring you all much love and joy and fur therapy when needed! xo
I’m late here but I trust animal instinct before human any day of the week. Cat’s, dogs and other animals can sense earthquakes before they happen or any other natural phenomena. ALWAYS pay attention to what they are paying attention to. I don’t have cats or dogs anymore but our first dog would growl at my son’s door when he was not in it. I ran for a neighbor thinking someone was hiding in there. But one day my son was in his room with one of those plastic solo cups and something pushed it straight up out of his hand. His eyes were big as saucers and so were mine. The dog knew the poltergeist was there but it was playful. I told my son not to worry as the dog would alert him if there were any danger. Animals pick up frequencies we do not. Maybe in meditation we could but I don’t get quiet enough. There are so many frequencies that we are not aware of so have fun watching.
Thank you for sharing Marlene! Yes, I agree with you! It’s interesting how animals are so attuned to those frequencies and yet we are so busy that we have a hard time tuning into them. A practice to work on for me most definitely.
