Was it the ancient Egyptians who believed that cats could guide you on your journey through the spirit world?

That's what I always thought. I had always *thought* they felt cats were sneaky, as they were entrusted with this power.


^ White cats?

There are three LTC's (long-term care/nursing homes) in my area that I know of; that have had a resident cat.

The nurses & CNAs at all three facilities, swear that when the cat would curl up on the bed of a resident, that it meant that death was imminent. I worked as the RN supervisor for 2 years at one of those facilities & did observe this happening several times.

I was a student in clinical rotations at one of the other facilities & worked as a temp intermittently at the other one, so I didn't actually witness it at either of those two.

Our prior dog could see ghosts and had a sense for something that was paranormal. She'd stop and look at new graves in the cemetery and not want to go any further. Some old houses unsettled her. We were on a walk in the woods and something was following us and circling us and she pulled to go back and I followed her lead. I'm not sure what that was. At the time I thought maybe it was a bigfoot( not really known in our area) or an indian ghost or the ghost of a mass murderer that lived near there some 200 years ago. Now I've read about skinwalkers, but again, they aren't known around us. But I've read David Paulides Missing 411 books and that will creep you out.
I have a photo of a black cat that was going into a gated cave when we were taking a leaf peeping drive near Halloween. That was cool.

Kitty was young, but she just ate her food and cleaned herself when my husband was dying. She may have licked his nose a couple of times. He spent more time with her than I did, but she didn't, what shall I say, belong to him.

Maybe she sensed that he was going to die.

Iím wondering if itís a scent thing. Certain scents make one of my cats wild, and the others think heís nuts.

They all like catnip. But Benny goes mad over mint. Mint dental floss ó canít put it in the bathroom trash, have to take it the closed kitchen can. Canít leave out Altoid tins. Drools, rolls, bliss bliss bliss.

Add to that, when my husband cuts the Kiwi vines, Benny goes insane!!!

And only Benny. The other kitties, nothing over mint and kiwi.

There could well be a scientific explanation. Maybe the human body emits an odor similar to catnip during the process of dying. However, cats and dogs both are sensitive to the paranormal, so who knows?
