Not sure which forum I should be posting this in, but I feel this forum will be fitting.

Has anyone's dogs or cats ever continuously growled at, barked, hissed, etc. at invisible moving things in your home that you cannot see, corners, on stairs (even chasing them or backing away from them like something invisible was going to strike at them)? Things where they follow with their eyes and ears forward and tilt their heads and ears forward like they are being talked to or taunted- not areas where there would be an attic above or close to walls where mice inside them would be a cause. My dog and cat have been very upset about something they are both seeing that obviously I cannot.

No hecklers or jokes about pet psychics, my animals do not need meds, etc.

If anything, it's becoming really annoying. It's happening at all hours. When my Rottie starts showing his teeth growling at something I cannot see as he would do to an intruder and I call his name and he quickly looks at me and back at whatever it is he's looking at and continues to get angry and growl and bark like he wants to attack and my cat is reacting in his upset feline way just the same at whatever it is they both see and hear...it's kind of weirding me out a little now, you know?

Your thoughts? Again, no smack talk, just want to know your thoughts and what you would make of it if your pets were doing this. This all started, oddly, after my Iguana was put to sleep on July 4th. Don't think it has anything to do with it, but that is the time it started happening and has been continuing since.

Your thoughts?

Not pets, no...but a year after my son died my daughter gave birth to a baby boy who was named for his uncle. For almost the first year of his life, little Kris would reach for, and giggle and coo at, someone or something that no one else could see, a blank wall in the corner of his room by his crib. There was nothing there...that we could see...but Kris sure saw or heard or sensed something. I choose to believe it was my son's energy looking overand playing with his namesake nephew.

I watch my pets, just because it's entertaining to watch them, however i have not noticed them growling or showing teeth at anything "blank", they would bark but they would always look at the windows or doors. Dogs/cats, hear things that you wont be able to hear, not because they are weird, but because you can not hear them due to our hearing not being advanced such as animals.

Default Spiritual things are real....

First of all, I don't know what your animals are sensing. They could be hearing something. Their ears and their senses are so keen.

But, it always amazes me how ready people are to believe in the dark side of spirituality -- not the good.

Last night, Jay Leno did a joke along these lines.

He was talking about the child that was sent home for dressing like Jesus for Halloween. He, (Jay Leno), pointed out that it was alright for people to dress as devils and evil things... they were allowed and it's o.k. to believe in them.

But, Jesus was sent home.

Your thoughts?
Is there anything going on within your home? Conflicts, arguments, misunderstandings of some sort? I ask this because sometimes when there's strife in the home, there's also negative energy, which I believe that animals, having a much keener 'sense' than ours, can pick up on quite easily. God Himself is a Spirit, but He has made himself known to us through His Son Jesus Christ and His Holy Words. I would'nt want to start messing around with anything, that cannot make it self known to me, would you? I also recall the bible specifically warning us about dabbling in the unknown. Satan has a way of seducing us and therefore having you believe that a particular spirit is one of a love one who has passed away. We are not to give heed to these familiar spirits of demons.

I believe we 'welcome' these energies into our home, mind and thoughts by invitation. Whether they in come by acknowledging them, or 'playing' around with them, it's an invite. Resist the devil and He shall flee. The devil will come in at any opportunity that he can cease. Have you given your life to Jesus Christ? Do you have a pastor that you can speak with? I'm speaking to you from experience. I too have had some experience with things unknown. But I can truly tell you, that is by the blood of Jesus Christ alone, that I was able to overcome. Please feel free to DM me if needed. God's blessing to you always. Keep praying and if you don't, start. Okay.


your sister in Christ Jesus

I wouldn't take this lightly. I think that animals can see into the super-natural realm....those things we normally cannot see. Can they see angels, and/or evil spirits? I think so. Your pets are trying to tell you they see something...


What to do about it? Well....you might try a certain type of prayer, and just see what happens afterwards...what your pets do afterwards...

It goes something like this: (modify as you feel the need)
"Satan...I resist you in Jesus' name. And, in the name of Jesus, I bind any of you unholy spirits in this house. I command you to depart immediately. Get out, and never return, in Jesus' name...."

My mother had a cat for years and years. Mother was placed on Hospice and I moved in with her this summer.

The cat demonstrated that he didn't like anyone so he hid during the day. At night he's climb up on mom's hospital bed and sleep with her.

The litter box and cat food were in the kitchen and I ensured the bowl was full each day and litter box cleaned out.

One day out of the blue I went into the livingroom (where my mother's hospital bed was) and the cat had used the bathroom on the sofa. The next day it happened again but on the chair. I moved the litter box into the livingroom. Fixed that. But 3 days later mother passed.

That cat KNEW. Plus, the day my mother passed I knew it would be her last day...knew it from the night before - although her nurses said she still had some time left. That day I sensed angels around. I'd look around my mother and around the living room...was like someone else was there.

So, animals, including humans, can pick up on spirits.

I agree, and then rest in His power. Don't exude any type of fear from that moment, and as I've heard spirits are subject to us in a cooperative way: if we are agitated, they will be too.

You should also annoint the doors and windows or wherever else you deem necessary, of your home with pure olive oil. (Which you can find in any regular grocery store). I ask you earlier, do you pray? You would need to. Or go to a friend's pastor? It's only by the blood of Jesus you will be able to rid your home of that presence. There's no other way. God Bless.
