This encounter was a rather bizarre one that vividly stands out in my mind. Within the year 2012, a few months following the untimely passing of my beloved pet cat named Sam, me and my family started experiencing weird sightings in the surrounding area. These events are what I strongly believe to be the spirit of Sam.
In my family house, where I lived with my parents and sister, we have a reasonably sized backyard, fenced off by chain link fencing. The back windows of the house had a nice wide view of the yard and neighboring yards as well. I live in a wooded area, so it wasn’t unusual to see all kinds of animals roaming around. But one day, a cat that looked eerily like my cat Sam appeared at the very corner of the yard, right against the chain link fence looking in towards the house. Usually we would tell each other when we’d see cute animals out the window, but this time it was different. We felt uncomfortable after grabbing our binoculars for a closer look, as we didn’t want to go out and startle the cat. It turns out, it had the same fur patterns and eye color as Sam did, even the same body type.
This spooked us a bit, and understandably caused mixed feelings, as it reminded us of our late cat. We continued about our day, but a half hour had passed and the cat was still sitting there, very intently staring at our house. It was uncomfortable to say the least, I didn’t know what the cat’s deal was, but I wished it would find something to do other than creepily stare our way.
