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?
