This is not a religious debate. I just want to know who feels that thier pets see things or know thats before you do.
I do belive in spirits, ghost, or angels whatever you want to call them. I was visited by my grandmother and greatgrandmother one night. I was asleep at my grandfathers house (which was a really nice area when they bought it but now isn't so good) and i heard whispering, and they were saying i don't think she knows, so i got up and went to were they were talking by the front door, and found it unlocked. so yes i belive, and this is just one experance
I am a true believer of spirits, etc. I have experienced many things in my life and in my home associated with loved ones that passed have on.
The day of my closing on my home, my female rottweiler that I had at the time was going completely crazy around 2 in the morning. She was pacing back and forth on the bed and was looking out in the hallway. She eventually jumped off the bed and ran in the hall way barking and ran in the room and then down the steps. Then she came back upstairs and went to sleep. The night of my closing on my home my house number came up straight on the lottery. I believe it was my great uncle she saw that passed away in my home.
The morning we had to put my female rottweiler to sleep, we came home and was sitting in the livingroom just talking about her and what we just had to do. My other rottweiler was upstairs sleeping so we know it wasn't him but we heard nails clicking across the kitchen floor and knew it was her making her last run through the house.

there was a thread on this a long time ago, i think that a lot of people on here believe that their pets have seen 'ghosts'
mazel sometimes licks and nips at the air. i also once found her in the living room (where she is not allowed and NEVER goes). she was sitting in the middle of the room doing her doggy tricks. she would sit and lay down and spin and give paw- it was totally bizarre.
she definitely sees things, whether they are spirits or her imagination i donít know (can dogs have schizophrenia??)
YOU BET!!!!!!! Absolutely. And the main "people" that can see these spirits are animals and babies. Animals are very in tune with their sences,and can see and hear things that we cannot or before we can.
yes i know that this was started a while back. i read it and wanted to added but did want to start the religious debate back, so i started it again. several other members thought it was a good thread, and there are so many new people here, so why no ask again.
I am glad you brought this back up! :) Yes I do firmly believe pets & infants to young children are highly capable. I remember when I was around 6 yrs old in my parents living room. I smelled my grandmother. I remember telling my mom that she was there. She thought I was just joking. Her mom had a distinct powder smell that was no doubt in my mind, it was her visiting us. Most of my incidents involved smell......
Yes, I believe that all living things consist of an energy (spirit) and just because the body dies, the energy will not just disappear. The energy will stay close to ones they are familiar with and love, to guide them and protect. People that are receptive to this can see and feel spirits around them. The innocent, such as animals and small children can easily see and feel spirits around them.
Some say that pets do not have spirits. I beg to differ. I feel that the energies of pets that we have loved will continue to be around us.
When our dogs and cats seem to be seeing ghosts, it's a way for our departed loved ones to comunicate with us to let us know they're still with us and watching over us.
I totally agree that they do...I have seen many instances in my life and have had some pet ghost experences as well...i was in bed and could feel (as anyone who has small pets like a cat or really small dog) when they walk on the bed by your feet and legs...It spooked me...I have to admit...Ive had pets stare and flip out and run off...or pay attention and then lay down camly...strange stuff...I would really crap though if my dogs went into their dog training routine and no one was prompting them...or any one that could be seen...errie
yes i do believe animals can see spirits. My mom tells me she can smell her dads cologne he used wo wear all the time, like if she's cleaning or something. My dad has worn the same thing he did but not in like 4-5 months. Her dad died in 1985...sooo...
My aunt had a dream about 2 weeks after her mom died, (My "Ninna") that she was free of tubes and was in the dress she was buried in and she said "I'm alright" and she woke up and smiled
I've also smelled my Ninna's perfume, or whatever, just her smell. Sometimes I can smell funeral flowers.
One year after she died, I thought about her, and I cried with Matt and one raindrop hit my cheek then all of a sudden started to rain all over. it was so neat
I believe animals see ghosts - or maybe spirits. Many times I catch my cats staring at the wall or the dogs whining for no reason.
I personally don't believe in ghosts, though. I've never seen one, even though I worked in one of the most haunted mansions in the US (concierge at a bed&breakfast). I sure did have the heebeegeebee's though. I think if I were to actually see a ghost, I might pee myself.
However, when I was a kid I was convinced that ghosts were watching me everywhere I went - and developed a paranoia about wiping myself in the bathroom...don't laugh. I had to do it really fast and without exposing my bum, otherwise I thought a ghost would grab my butt.
I 100% believe in that stuff, however as much as I believe and as much as I want to, I have never seen anything. However my daughter has, she use to wake me up screaming because she said there was a man in her room. And when my son was 1 week old, with no one else in the house I put him down for a nap so I could take a shower and when I got out he was bundled up in a blanket, one I didnt put on him. Plus there are times when I will walk into my kids room and there will be a cat on every childs bed, just watching something in the room. Kind of looks like they are each guarding all the kids.
I can't say if I believe or not. I think it's possible. I do know that if they did exist, animals would be much more aware of another wordly presence before we would. Just like how they react to fire, storms, earthquakes etc. Their senses are so much better than ours, and they don't have the pre-existing biases that many of us have.
ye i do - a few times i have felt something at the bottom of my feet, i usually think it is Zippy - he is still alive, but one day i woke up and looked and there was nothing thair, i think it was one of my cats who died : )
also when i was about 8 i was in my bed, and i was asleep, i don't now why but i looked up, and say a spirit/ goast, it was so scary - it looked like casper lol i ran into my mums room, coz i was really scared and the spirat followed me in to my mums bed room, i hid under the covers for a few minutes untile i looked up again and tere was nothing thair. it really freeked me out - i told my mum and so told me it could have been one of my brothers who died b4 they were born : (
My mum sees stuff all the time but in her dreems, she sees family members who have died and pets. i sometime see them to. but it is quite scary when she sees stuff that is going to happen, which is really freeky, they are loads. well anyway it was a few years ago, my mum told me she say a black catlieing dead or something, we were all kinda scared coz we thought i was Lucky my 11 year old black catw hwo was going to die, but it wasn't a week or so later, we took butons, my brothers cat to the vat, she was pregnent and was bleading : ( she had 2 stay at the vets, we took her home a few days later, but we had to go back coz she was bleading again, anyway we got a phone call the next day, they told us they had to put her down coz she had fluid in her lungs : (
She also say also say a cat a few years later get hit by a car and die - there again, my lovely boy Cheeky got hit by a car and died instintly ; (
So overall ye i defenetly beleve in this kind of stuff, you all might think i am being weird with all this stuff, it is really scary nowing that a member of your family is going to die, coz my mum sees this stuff, but it is all TRUE, i wouldn't make this kind of stuff up.
