Is your pet really dead?
Paranormal investigator Joshua Warren thought his dachshund was, but for
weeks after her death he still heard her shrill, desperate whining haunting his
home. Using an array of high-tech equipment, he searched for her presence.
What he found led him on an exploration of ghostly animals throughout history.
That exploration is here, in Pet Ghosts.
Ancient and medieval texts from all cultures are filled with references to spectral
creatures, from witch’s familiars like ominous cats and owls, to giant hellhounds
and werewolves. Some beasts, such as fire-breathing dragons, Bigfoot, and
Mothman, may even be spirits of mysterious extinct animals.
Today, reports of “phantimals” are as abundant as ever. In Pet Ghosts, Warren
recounts many real-life experiences: a man haunted by the cackling calls of his
dead African Gray, a “Christmas dinner hog” pursuing the farmer that killed him,
a snake that slithers between this world and the next.
Many animals can sense information beyond human ability. Dogs and cats can
hear more, birds can see more, and some fish even have a sixth sense for
magnetism. What makes the relationship with your pet so special? Perhaps
that’s what often keeps them around long after death.
Also included in Pet Ghosts:
• Interviews with animal experts, such as cryptozoologist Loren Coleman.
• Simple tools and techniques for you to find and record your pet’s spirit.
• Theories on how “phantimals” manifest.
• Tips on how to contact your deceased pet.
From known creatures to unknown, ancient to modern, anecdote to scientific
theory, in text and pictures, Pet Ghosts is a comprehensive look at how animal
spirits relate to humans, for better or for worse, and how you can document them
on your own.
