Interesting thing is, my Writing teacher has told us about her cat named Waffles, and he apparently this disorder which is like the cat equivalent of depression and schizophrenia. I asked her if her cat actually had hallucinations, much like schizophrenic humans do, and she said yes, he does. She told me that she has to try and distract him from his hallucinations sometimes so he won't hurt himself. So yeah;;
Why is it that non sapient life forms like normal animals and only evolved (psychic) sapient life forms like psychic humans and sometimes the extremely religious are able to see the supernatural without using drugs like Drake or marijuana, honestly?

I went to the zoo a few days ago and the penguins were all staring at rocks and people were trying to get them to turn around and they wouldn't.... but they were all looking at different nodes... wierd
I seem to remember a short story I read once in a book titled Cat Fantastic, (I think it was edited by Mercedes Lackey? I know there are a bunch of them, I, II, III....Really great anthologies if you can find them.)
Anyway, This was exactly what was going on in one!*G*
Or cobblies in City by Clifford Simak. Except cobblies are beings that exist in alternate realities which trail right behind us in the time stream, and it was either that all animals could detect them, or just dogs (dogs are a big part of that story).
Well my cat acts as if she's being chased by something that I can't see, her eyes go really wide and she stays really still for a few seconds, and then has a complete panic attack and runs for her life.
My dog doesn't look at the ceiling, she just stares into space - often straight ahead - for long periods of time. And it seems to me that for her to be looking like that, without blinking, she has to be looking at SOMETHING in particular, but there's never anything there.....
Omg yes! Every single one of my five cats -well four now, I keep forgetting- always looks at a corner of the ceiling like that, and we just call it the happy place as an inside joke, but this really puts things into perspective. So demons from hell oozing in from the attic is what they've been staring at all this time? No wonder I feel like I'm being watched at night! Or is that my neighbor stalking me? I can't tell anymore T.T...
