I feel my house gets very "spiritually active" during full moons, since one of the dogs I used to have would actually sit and watch "someone" change positions on a particular couch and would also tilt her head and dip it as if being petted. Nobody, including myself, seems to feel threatened, so apparently these "spirits" are animal lovers!"

Marie A. wrote, "I have a beautiful 7 yrs old calico who absolutely goes crazy. She meows all night and gets aggresive with the other cats. It starts about 2 days before the moon fulls and lasts about 2 days after."
Sharon L. wrote, "Every full moon, my Maine Coon gets the night spooks. He'll run around the apartment as if a ghost is chasing after him, occasionally meowing as though frightened. He runs out of steam after about an hour or so, then he'll cuddle close on the bed with me. And now that I have another cat (a female tabby), she'll follow him in the night spooks! Can cats see ghosts? I'd love to know for sure!"
