Ghost Video: Ghost Cat Caught on Film?

New York’s Shanley Hotel is a former bordello with a haunted reputation. According to the inn’s website, eerie events include chairs that rock on their own, chimes from unseen clocks, disembodied whistling, footsteps in empty corridors, and unexplained odors, among other things. However, owner Sal Nicosia claims not all of the hotel’s ghosts are human. And he says he has a video to prove it.

On January 15, 2013, paranormal investigator Stephen Barcelo recorded video of a cat in one of Shanley’s hallways (above at 1:00). However, there were no cats staying at the hotel at the time the video was filmed. Could it be Nicosia’s former cat, an animal that always behaved oddly at the reportedly haunted inn?

“When we moved into the hotel, the cat refused to go out,” Nicosia said. “I couldn’t get the cat to come into my apartment. I would bring her into the room and she’d run right out the door so I started feeding her in the hallway,”

Nicosia also said that he recorded an EVP of a ghost named Claire claiming the cat belongs to her. Do you believe his story? What do you think of the ghost cat footage?

At first, I thought my dog had come in and was trying to get up on the bed and I was just feeling her paws, but I could see that my door was still closed. The pressure kept happening on and off every few seconds, like something was pushing on my bed. Then, it moved closer to me, and instead of pressing on my bed it started pulling on a blanket that was hanging down to the floor. It started as light tugging and got more powerful with each pull. It got so strong that it almost started pulling me off the bed with the blanket. I was so terrified at this point that I pulled the blanket up off the floor and looked down. Of course, there was nothing there. I was absolutely horrified and had to move to a different room to be able to fall asleep again.
