Skip the details here. It could be a bit morbid and spooky.
My cat, Mom and I lived together for years. My cat was really a therapy cat (untrained). He always knew how to make my Mom smile. When she passed, the emergency guys had placed her in the living room. My cat was shut into my bedroom. Once the bulk of ER people left and we were waiting for the morgue people to arrive, my cat (a Siamese) got the bedroom door open, walked up the hall, went right past me and my Mom (I was holding her hand) and stood in front of a living room chair.
He stared at it for a long time, swishing his tail. He then sat down and began to groom. He did not approach my Mom's body until the morgue men came into the house and then it was just for a quick sniff.
So... was my Mom in the living room chair watching over us? Did my cat see her in the chair?
It's a question I haven't got the balls to ask my pastor (yet).
