I’m not sure if anything’s been posted about this before, and I sort of think there’s an argument for/against an explanation for this but…
When cats know they’re going to die, they sometimes go off somewhere quiet and out-of-sight to die. I understand this, and I’ve seen this. I accept that as “something cats would do”.
Years ago, I had a cat (it’s ok. I’ve got another one now). This was my “baby boy”. He’d always sleep next to me, every night. Then, he just started seeming “sick”. He wasn’t his usual self. Sort of sad looking, slow…but he’d still eat, allow you to pet him – he just seemed like he wasn’t his usual self. Then, one mild winter day, he just walked away. He was an indoor/outdoor kind of cat. It wasn’t out of the normal for him to spend a night or two away. So, at first, I thought nothing of it – that he’d be back.
After a few days’ absence, I was starting to wonder where he was. I started looking around the yard, behind the garage, even felt around under my neighbor’s shed (all I found there was a dead possum), but still no sign of my cat. After about a week of looking for him, calling for him, leaving food out for him, and no sign of him, I sort of resigned myself to the possibility that he’d gone off to die somewhere. Alright, I’ll admit it – I was sad about it. But, as I said before, I understand that sometimes this is what cats do.
A few months later, I was in bed – just drifting off to sleep, and I felt, what seemed like, a cat had lightly hopped up to the foot of my bed, paused briefly, then started walking up along my legs (I would swear I could feel each step this cat was taking as it walked up my bed!) and stop again at my hip. I reached down to touch the cat, and there was nothing there. I turned on the light, and there was no cat.
So, I got out of bed and searched my house – no cat. Checked the door, it was closed and locked. And I didn’t have another cat at the time. I went back to bed, secretly contented to believe that my “baby boy” had come back to me (even as a spirit), almost as a way of showing me that, when he slept next to me, he felt safe and comfortable.
I’ve always had a cat (sometimes 2), where ever I’ve lived. I know they have a great way of “reading people” (this one in particular was VERY good at that!), so I’m ok with believing that my cat had come back to me as a way of showing his appreciation for the care I’d given him. I’ve felt this “mystery cat” on my bed a few times, but it would only come up as close to my hip. I’ve got a cat now, and she sleeps in my bed too. Thankfully, there’s no issue between her and the “mystery cat”. In fact, I haven’t been visited by the “mystery cat” in a few years.
As for the argument “against” this being the spirit of my long, lost “baby boy” (he was named Ralph, as in Ralph Cramden on “The Honeymooners”), I could possibly dismiss this as possibly I was thinking about Ralph when I felt the “mystery cat” on my bed…however, I don’t recall actually thinking about Ralph when this occurred (I can’t be 100% sure, though). I do know that, when I feel this “mystery cat” walking up my bed, I automatically think that it is Ralph, so…that would be a partial argument against this being my cat’s spirit coming for a visit.

I am very serious about these questions and I thank everyone who sincerely answers them.
First please allow me to say as with many if not most people I have my own beliefs but I am setting them aside because I want to hear any an all perspectives without bias or preconceived notions.
In many ghost stories there are suicides is that a punishment for the act of suicide to be forced to stay I guess maybe I can say between realms?
And as to good and evil is there a hell or a place like that or is that the punishment for being bad or evil to stay between realms ?
Is there any punishment of any kind at all involved , I mean it hardly seems fair that someone real bad like Hitler gets a joy ride into the next world or reincarnated into a good life on this planet or any planet in any universe or dimension does it now?
Are there demons and evil spirits? Human? Alien ? What are the penalties for wrong doing if any .
What rewards if any for being a good decent moral person ?
No difference ? difference?
How does it all work.

Hello everyone this will be my first post on this board,
I found this site via a google search because of an issue I have been having my entire life and it’s not reached my peak of interest.
First and foremost I more often than not feel as though I can feel when something is present. I say something because I honestly don’t know if its a ghost (sure feels that way) but it could be anything else like I said I really don’t know.
I get this feeling at different places, in old houses or abandoned areas etc. I have gotten this in my house when I was younger, I can recall specific times actually SEEING a spirit or something in my room. It ran on my walls, from one end of the room to the other and when it got to my bed which was against the final wall, it disappeared. I also remember one thing I can’t really place. I woke up in the middle of the night and there was a blob on my floor that was glowing green. I know this sounds corny but that was YEARS ago, and it still sticks with me in my mind so I feel it has to have some meaning. Either way I got out of bed to check it out, I ran my hand across where it was and only felt the carpet. At this point I was getting chills. I got up and turned on the light in my room, and the green disappeared, when I turned the light back off it re appeared. I decided it was nothing and just went back to bed and fell asleep, which thinking back isn’t like me back then I’m surprised I wasn’t getting creeped out more than I was. The first thing comes that comes to mind is that I spilled some sort of glow in the dark material there, and I even looked around my room for what could have spilled or if I had one of those glow in the dark hot wheels tracks around it and I couldn’t find anything (this was many years ago, I’m a senior now and 18, I must have been in my single digits when this happened, no I don’t still have the glow in the dark hot wheels track lol).
I also get different feelings around my body if I think about it but that can be a whole different topic and doesn’t fit with what I’m trying to get at here. What I made the post for is that I get these feelings that my house still has something in it. I asked both my parents, from what I understand it isn’t an old house and no one has died inside of it. My mom is a pharmacist and travels to hospitals and other places and one of her co-workers is a white witch. She asked her co-worker if there was anything that I could do to remove what was inside the house. I can’t remember the first thing she had me do, but it didn’t work. The second thing was to burn white sage and walk clockwise in each room starting at the back of the house saying that the ghost/spirit/whatever isn’t welcome here. That also didn’t work. She says that because that didn’t work then whatever I’m feeling might be attached to me, which makes more since seeing as the house doesn’t have any evidence against it that would make it obvious a ghost is here.
Oh let me share a quick story about how my male shepherd has been acting just recently. There have been three separate times now that both my dad and I have witnessed once by ourselves and the third time both of us saw it together. Sometimes yuri (the dog) will yelp and jump and in mid-air do a 180 and look behind him as if something has pulled his tail or something. His ears go down and the hair on the back of his neck stands up and he puts his head really low. Every time this happens it has been at the bottom of the steps on our ground floor, and he will walk by there slowly with the aforementioned body reactions, or avoid it completely and stare at it for a few hours. At this point I think it would be good to mention I get the MAJORITY of my feeling in my particular house, coming from upstairs towards the back of the house, and on a less common occasion feel it downstairs, but that’s a little more rare.
What I’m wondering is does anyone know how to confirm something here other than my feeling/intuition, and do you know how I can possibly get it to present itself without the use of one of those boards, forgive me I’m having a brain fart and am too involved in writing this to look it up, ouji? however its spelled. Is there a way to get whats here to show or communicate with me or is that dangerous? Are there any suggestions on how to deal with this if there is something here, or worse if I somehow got it from somewhere else and its attached to me like my moms co-worker may think?
Thank you in advanced and I apologize if this is a little lengthy.
Oh and sorry if this is in the wrong section I saw three that this could have gone in so if a mod feels it should be moved then please go ahead.
