Animals can make some of the best friends a human could ask for. Who doesn’t look back fondly on their childhood pet and wish they were still around? In some cases, those furry friends from days gone by have actually returned in mysterious ways. On other occasions, outdoor critters appear as shadow animals, and paranormal dogs and cats pay visits to people they never even knew in life.
These animal ghost stories, shared by the good people of Reddit, will send a shiver down your spine - but deep down, you'll probably start wishing you could encounter a ghostly animal pal at least once in your life.
