In today's blog, I'm featuring a question about pets, ashes and seeing spirit.
Q: My daughter's cat was obsessed with my dad and wouldn't leave him alone
whenever he was staying at home with us. He passed away 2 months ago and
we have his ashes in his bedroom since he came back home to us the cat
refuses to go in there even though whenever he wasn't with us when he
was alive they went in there. Does that mean anything??? I'm worried
that dad isn't at peace and that's why the cats are scared of going near
A: Thanks for your comment. Your cat senses your dad's spirit from time to
time in that room, and is confused and scared because your cat can't
smell his scent. It's confusing for a pet to see a spirit (as they can)
but have no sense of smell (which is harder for a spirit to generate, as
it requires more energy). Your dad is at peace, but sometimes, the
residual energy in someone's ashes act as a beacon to draw them whenever
someone who loved them comes into the room. That would be the love or
emotional connection your cat had with your dad. So, ask your dad to
stop scaring your cat, and understand that the cat can't make sense of
spirit. Also, you could move the ashes out of the room for a day or two
and see if the cat will stay in the room. The ashes also emit a small
amount of residual energy, which may also be unsettling to your
daughter's cat. Either way, your dad has crossed over, and the cat just
can't make sense of a spirit without a scent.
