In 1994, my family and I moved into a three-story Victorian house that had been built in 1895. We quickly found that the house had many ghosts, including a black cat.
We'd see the cat dashing down the hall or strolling into a room and then vanishing. Sometimes, we'd spot it in the bathroom or in a bedroom, and we'd stoop to pet it, thinking it was one of our black cats, only to find ourselves grasping air.
Who this cat was and what had happened to it remained a mystery.
We moved out of the house in 2001 but began renovating it in 2003. After we removed the front porch in order to rebuild it, we were shocked to discover the mummified remains of a black cat beneath the debris. It was obvious that it had been dead for a long time.
I was certain that this was our ghost cat. I wanted it to have a proper burial in hopes of giving its soul peace. But while I was away, one of the workmen unknowingly put the cat in the dumpster, and it was taken to the city dump.
We never saw the ghost cat again.
After we moved back into the house in 2004, however, our beloved black cat Hera died tragically on the back porch when dogs attacked her. Soon afterward, we began to see the ghost of a black cat again.
It looks like this old house is destined to have a black ghost cat.
