The obvious answer to why cats sometimes stare for no reason is they probably saw a bug or shadow

But I like to think they're actually seeing the faint traces of distorted spacetime as trans-dimensional visitors pop into and out of our universe

@cypnk I suspect it's often something they've *heard*, such as a mouse or a bug in the wall, or the faint scraping sound as horrors from beyond our ken briefly pass through our universe at a point just between the carpet and the flooring.

I pretend that my dog is seeing ghosts when she refuses to walk the direction that I've chosen for reasons that are not readily apparent to me.

@cypnk that's in fact very close to the truth ... almost too close ^^
