We’ve Got Ghosts

At least I started considering the idea of us having ghosts, especially after bathroom cabinets were found standing ajar without a living, breathing person around to leave them that way.  Several times this week after shuttling people around town for school related activities, I’d return home to find a cabinet door open and stand there looking at it like, ‘Did I do that? ‘ And then I was all, ‘No.  Definitely not a me-thing to do.‘  Yet no actual people were in the house all day.  Was I losing my mind?  Huh-uh.

The answer had to be: Ghosts

Then I brought this whole situation up with hubs who debunked my theory completely.  Turns out that he returned home one afternoon and ran into the same scenario: cabinet door standing open, nobody around.  So what did he do next?  Well, he basically did what any ordinary not-scared-of-ghosts type person would do – he looked inside the cabinet, only to find our dear old cat sleeping comfortably on top of a nicely folded pile of towels.

Stinker head.  God love her furry little soul.

    You know it’s funny you talking about this. Just recently I discovered (and fell in love with) a show called “Ghost Hunters” on the Sci-Fi network. They go around and debunk claims of ghosts, and when they can’t they sometimes get incredible footage of Things That Cannot Be Explained.
    I could just see Jason (the founder, and leader of TAPS) wandering about your house with the thermal camera catching your “cat” on cam (and then his response).
    Too funny!!

    When I read the title and then the first paragraph, I knew Smokie was probably involved. Over the years, I’ve gotten used to this kind of stuff. The cats learned how to open cabinets and would hide in the strangest places. Then the dogs learned how to open the cabinets (the cats taught them!) and they try to get into the dog treats. I think they did it to try and freak me out – which they would do when they came out of hiding and I wasn’t expecting them to be there.

    The little ghosts that live in our house do the same thing. They love to play silly games.

    In the middle of the night when they are locked outta the bedroom one of them reaches up to the doorknob and rattled it!! The first few times that they did that…scared the peewater outta both of us!!!

    Once, one little ghost found the stopper to the bathtub. It’s a favorite toy. I don’t know why.
    But we put it in a drawer. One of them opened the drawer and got the stopper….and nothing else… and had it in the living room just playing away with it. Like “hahaha I found it!”

    Cats are like 8 yr olds. Not babies, not really needy. Not like teens, never mean. Just always playing.

    One of my friends has Great Danes. Two. She had to change her lever-style inside doorknobs out for round ones because the dogs learned to let themselves in and out every door – even the ones she didn’t want them going through.

    I’m glad it was Smokie – but it must have been a bit nerve wracking until you figured it out. 😛

    @solphoto – Time to give Jason a call. Wouldn’t that be a hoot? Smokie doesn’t cover her tracks very well, so it wouldn’t take long for him to catch her red-handed. (or ‘pawed’, should I say)

    @bigdogmompam – Now that is incredible – the cat taught the dogs how to open cabinets? Who would’ve thought it possible? LOL 😀

    @mznadine420 – Persistent buggers, aren’t they? You are so right about the 8 year old-needy-playful comment. Gotta love ’em for that.

    @JeriM – I had no idea Great Danes (or any breed) could be so SMART! It really was nerve wracking until hubs caught her in the act, as I started questioning my ability to close cabinets. :/
