The shadow cat is a creature alleged to exist outside the planes of our normal reality. Many say they appear out of the corner of your eye - a flash in your peripheral vision. Some speculate that they are the ghosts of past cats.
Reports vary, but some sightings indicate that the shadow cat will flee once it knows it has been seen or noticed. While the shadow cats are associated with a dark side of our world, they are not assumed to be negative or evil creatures. Rather, their sudden appearance and disappearance is the result of their surprise, their caution and their need to flee.
Some believe that the cats are manifestations of living cats that exist in another dimension. For a brief moment, the cat appears in our dimension and is visible. In the next instant, the cat is gone. Any person seeing a shadow cat will most likely doubt that they saw it, wonder if their eyes are working, and dismiss it.
There are many people who report repeated sightings: a black shapeless creature running through a hallway or disappearing around a corner; a shadow following a real pet as it scampers down the stairs. No one can say for sure if this phenomenon is real or not, but there are many who believe in shadow cats. However, there are experts who claim shadow creatures do not exist and are simply normal vision issues or just imagination.
Do you believe in shadow cats? If so, have you ever seen one?
