Reason Why Cats Stare At Something We Don’t See

Cat owners are well aware of the unsettling sensation that comes when their pet suddenly stares into space, or toward the wall, looking closely at something that we don’t see.

There is a popular belief that cats are capable of picking up paranormal presences, but luckily, this typical feline behavior has a completely rational explanation.

The real answer is that cats have sight (especially in the dark), hearing, and smell that we don’t have. A 2014 study found that cats can see some wavelengths of light that humans cannot, such as ultraviolet light.

They have more light-sensitive rods in their eyes than humans, allowing them to perceive reflections and flashes of light, even when the light in the room is very dim.

Something similar happens with his fine hearing. Cat owners have discovered rodents in their homes after their cats took a careful look at a wall. They can even hear hissing in the air ducts.

So when your cat is staring at the wall or the void, fear not, there is no ghost. Most likely he is looking at a small spider or some tiny insect that you cannot see with the naked eye, or even a speck of dust.
