Woman's Home Security Camera Captures 'Ghost Cat' Vanishing Into Thin Air
The clip was filmed on 12 January in Austin, Texas, and shows the cat walking up the path until it gets into the light - which is when it suddenly disappears from sight into the shadows.
The video was shared by a woman called Natalie, who referred to the creature as a 'ghost cat'.
She told Newsflare: "My husband set up the whole security system for safety reasons as he's away in the US Army, and I watched it and oh my God! I caught a ghost cat?!"
The clip was also shared on YouTube - where not everyone seemed as convinced about Natalie's feline apparition.
While a few people said they thought it was a 'ghost cat' - with one joking "Who are we going to call? Ghostbusters!!!" - others weren't having it.
One person commented: "Seriously? You think the cat is vanishing? Really? It has nothing at all to do with security cameras having issues with dark colors? Definitely not digital artifacts? Seriously? Can you see my obvious sarcasm here? Come on guys!"
Another speculated: "Actually the cat is still there. The cheap camera couldn't differentiate between the color of the cat and the shadow cast across the pathway."
A third quipped: "Sorry that's my cat, called 'fake news'."
Another woman in the US found herself in a similar situation, after her home security camera captured what she reckons was the ghost of her son, who passed away aged 23 following a drug overdose.
Jennifer Hodge, 57, from Atlanta, Georgia, was in bed watching TV with her daughter Lauren, 21, last week when her home security system was triggered. A notification on her phone read, 'person spotted in entry way'.
"I was laying in bed watching TV with my daughter and I was just about asleep.
"The phone was lay between us and I got this message notification saying someone was in the kitchen.
"She was like 'Mum, there's a person in the kitchen... Mum, that's Robbie!' I was stunned.
"And it did look just like him - beard and all."
She added that she has now taken it as a sign her son is 'happy in heaven'.
She said: "Now, I feel like he was letting me know he is happy in heaven.
"That brings me some comfort, but I still just think it's weird. I'm in awe - why did this happen to me? I haven't seen anything since and I had never seen a ghost before.
"Does it look like Robbie? Yes. I would love to see anybody else's camera where people might look transparent. This is just weird."
Robbie died in 2016 after what is believed to be an accidental overdose of fake Xanax. Ms Hodge said she and her son were working to establish a charity to help tackle addiction prior to his death.
