Can Cats See Ghosts or Spirits?
Can Cats See Ghosts or Spirits? This is a common question that many of us, the cat parents have in mind. Well, no matter how scientific we are, we can’t help it at times. Do you know the reason? Of course, you do!
Cats are weird, and they behave at times in a way that leads us to think that cats can see ghosts or demons. Is that true though? It is a tough question, and we tried to break it down for you in this article.
Quick answer: There is no scientific evidence that ghosts or spirits exist and there is no scientific evidence that cats can see ghosts, spirits or angels.
Do Cats See Ghosts or Spirits
So let’s face it. We ask the question “can cats see ghosts or demons” because we see our cats interacting with subjects that we don’t see with the naked eye. That is scary, and that is real!
Let’s talk a bit more about the cat vision and their ability to see kinds of stuff before we get to any conclusion.
We know that cats have very powerful eyes. Though they can’t see a ton of colors, the power takes care of it with other benefits. It is now also proven that cats can see ultraviolet light which is invisible obviously in naked eyes.
If you are a cat parent, you know cats do ‘urine marking’. They fix their territory that way. Did you ever wonder how come your cat is peeing at that same spot even when the odor is gone? That’s because scientists predict that cats can not only smell their urine but can also spot the marks with their powerful eyes.
So yes, we can easily conclude that cats have better eyes than human beings and it is possible that they can sense
ghosts or spirits. Is that all? Obviously not because only better eyes do not ensure that they can see those mysterious objects!
It is time to dig deep!
Let’s look at some of those unexplainable incidents once again. Have you ever seen your cat do one of the following?
- Meowing in a loud voice at something invisible
- Hissing at something invisible
- Hiding and hissing under something or at a corner for no reason
- Behaving like something/someone touched your cat out of nowhere
- Showing the signs of worrying using a tail language
While these incidents don’t answer our question of can cats see ghosts or spirits, these are weird incidents! A different analyst has tried assuming that cats can actually see supernatural objects using these behavior traits. We don’t think they are enough to call it, but yes, we have to agree that these are weird!
We don’t want you to get afraid of your cat the next time you see it. Let’s say that it is not yet proven that cats can see ghosts and do you know why?
It is because we don’t know whether ghosts exist or not. And we won’t probably know it ever. That itself solves the whole conversation. If you believe that ghosts are not real, there is no point in arguing whether your cat can see those or not. We have first to wait till scientists prove that ghosts exist.
Some will definitely argue that though ghosts are not there, something supernatural is and cats can see them. That can be true to some extent because yes, cats act weird at times. But let’s face it. Cats are weird, aren’t they?
So let’s not worry much about cats and ghosts and enjoy the company of our furry friends!
