MrsBasil Posted July 25, 2012 Share Posted July 25, 2012 A little over a month ago we had to put down my 10 year old cat. We all loved her, she was a very friendly, patient, outgoing cat who was good with the kids. DS misses her and, for a few days, took her abscence kind of hard. Then he moved on. In the past week he's had 3 episodes of being scared at night and claiming he's seeing a shadow cat trying to get under his bed to sleep. He mentioned it might have been our other(still alive)cat. His door is shut at night, so that's unlikely. I've assured him there's no cat under hus bed, shadows just look like things, it's ok to be scared and to yell for me, but there's no cat. Shadow or not. This is the first time I've dealt with "nightmares", so I consulted some friends with older kids. Everyone of them expressed that maybe my cat had come home. :confused: Since my cat did get lost shortly before she died, I clarifed. This cat had been found, got sick, and was euthanized. They knew. They all thought the likely explanation was that it was my dead cat. :001_huh: they also thought my DS 3 might find this comforting. :blink: An wider, informal poll shows that the majority of people I know think this is possible or likely. I am a tiny minority who thinks it's....preposterous. So, am I the weird one here? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
