The old cat of a dear friend passed along recently, and the news had me recalling that after our beloved household dogs and cats pass, I perceive glimpses, in my peripheral vision, of these friends for about a month after. It's never a clear, straight-on view, just a view in the corner of my eye. Does this happen to you? Is it brain/optics coping with grief, or real residual presence? Is it specific to peripheral vision only? I've found it comforting just seeing our Doberman romping in the backyard or seeing a kitty just rounding a corner in the house.
