ground ghosts 12>bobprin posted:1/9/2013 12:39:33 PM On April 9th, 2012 my wife was rounding up the cats to put in for the night as we have had trouble from coyotes killing them. This incident happened on Nebraska road in Forest county Pa. It's a rural black top road. Here is her story as reported to Stan Gordon of PAUFO. "I was getting the cats in for the night and had all but two, Flower and Dickens were in the field across the road. I walked to the enf of the driveway and called to them. As I was waiting I looked up the road and saw the berm on the west side of the road start to glow in a three foot circle.I thought maybe it was fog but there wasn't any. The circle got brighter and began to rise. It rose up about six feet and formef a dome with tendrils of mist reaching to the ground. The glowing mist inside the dome was lazily swirling and reminded me of my birthstone ring the fire opal. It started to drift into the field and after fifteen feet or so began to fade until it disappeared. Dickens put his paws on my leg then and I about shit. I picked him up and there was another one on the other side of the road glowing the same way. I stood there and watched as it drifted across the road and disappeared in about the spot as the first one. Flower came running out of the field then straight across the road and right to the house. I looked again and there was a third spot in the middle of the road. It did the same thing, disappearing also in the same place. Dickens stayed relaxed and purred the whole time in my arms." Has anyone else even heard of something like this?spooky1 posted:1/9/2013 1:57:59 PM No I haven't. But I'm so glad ur kitties r OK! As well as the Mrs. I believe in UFOs but have no personal experience but I'm sure u will find some here.gary107 posted:1/9/2013 2:07:15 PM when mountain lions are near cats and dogs will stay silent. It was nothing they feared. Neither should you.Four posted:1/9/2013 2:34:43 PM Some of the farm workers in my part of the world have told me about fireballs that eat their cats. Sounds similar to me. Ive never seen them but honestly who knowsbobprin posted:1/9/2013 3:08:58 PM Mary said she wasn't really frightened by them, not until later.Jaxerback posted:1/9/2013 4:07:53 PM Could have been a form of undocumented atmospheric phenomenon? Maybe due to a combination of certain factor's such as humidity,atmospheric pressure,electro-magnetic fluctuations etc. Then again maybe it was those little anal probing grey fuckers again??spooky1 posted:1/9/2013 4:08:54 PM O my God, fireballs that eat cats! ! That's absolutely horrific! As u can tell I'm a crazy cat gal. & I hate any animal cruelty!Jaxerback posted:1/9/2013 4:24:48 PM There are no fireballs floating around looking for cats for their dinner...you can relax Spooky 1.. LincolnGenghis posted:1/9/2013 7:52:21 PM I like both cats and dogs. The one thing I absolutly love about cats and get pissed off about at the same time is the fact that they are punks that can hold a grudge. I had a cat aptly named Sid. He always got revenge. If you pissed him off he would play it off like everything was cool at the time, but lurking below the surface he would stew about things and would wait until you went to sleep or left the house and then exact revenge. I think his most devious plot was taking a shit in a potpourri basket and then burying it. The last place you are going to look when you are trying to track down a foul subtle odor would be the potpourri. Smart little bastard just watched as I was looking for the source of the smell, I swear he was smilling. And the shear logistics to plant a shit in there just right means there was some serious premeditation behind that one. As mad as I was I had to start laughing wondering how the hell he balenced on all fours on the narrow rim of a basket and do that without knocking it over. It was to high just to back up to and to small for him to fit inside. It was like a Houdini shit. gary107 posted:1/9/2013 9:04:47 PM Linc, seems to suggest that talent is to be appreciated even if not understood.LincolnGenghis posted:1/10/2013 2:24:42 PM Cats seem to have many talents.

As u can tell I'm a crazy cat gal. & I hate any animal cruelty!Im a farmer, I feel the same. Its just intresting that the discriptions I ve heard from workers in my area sound almost identical, except cats get eaten bobprin posted:1/11/2013 11:35:20 AM Hmmm... well we do on occasion have a missing cat, but that could be from any number of causes. There are so many wierd things in the forest around here that anything is possible. I'll ask some of the old timers about this.gary107 posted:1/11/2013 11:55:32 AM go about asking those kinds of questions and see where that leads ?bobprin posted:1/11/2013 1:05:54 PM Yes, there are lots of stories around here. Four, Mary wants to know if there was any particular season that they appeared there?Four posted:1/11/2013 1:21:45 PM All year from what i hear, but Im in South Africa and I really just found it interesting that what you saw matches what the guys in my area say eats catsbobprin posted:1/11/2013 2:06:58 PM Thank you. Mary is worried now because the one arose up through a blacktop road and can possibly rise through the concrete floor in the building where she keeps them at night. Hmmm... what to do?breeld posted:1/13/2013 7:15:42 AM What the hell? That`s just too horrific to even think about. We`re not allowed pets in the house we rent, but I feed allllll the neighborhood cats. (and birds). They`ve adopted us, and I`d hate to think something like this happens to cats. I wonder why not dogs and other animals. Not that I`d want THEM to get eaten, cause I`m a big-time animal lover. Just sayin`.....bobprin posted:1/13/2013 8:52:16 AM Well, I put one of those push things in the door so they can get in and out as need be. That required a lot of cuss words. They haven't been back that we know of, so thats good. Speaking of animals, big story in the local paper. They had to close our zoo, seems the raccoon escaped.spooky1 posted:1/13/2013 1:35:55 PM Thx u again Breeld for the support.
