'Psychic cat' goes viral in Russia, and is 'bought for $84,000 by clairvoyant'

By The Siberian Times reporter

The 'mind-changing' moggie begins new life working for Siberian 'witch' after driving previous owner crazy.

The bizarre story was told by the former owner of cat Charles Utkins, who inherited the pet from his aunt when she died. Dmitry R soon noticed the strange abilities of his new pet, for example appearing from behind locked doors at his home in Blagoveshchensk.

He explained: 'The doors to the rooms were closed, and the cat, shut away elsewhere, suddenly appears in the room from behind closed doors, although nobody let him go.

'He reads minds, but the worst thing - he inspires thoughts. And these thoughts will be fulfilled, they are impossible to resist. He made me go shopping and buy what he needed.

'Before I met Utkins I... did not believe in supernatural things. But this creature managed to inspire me to thoughts and shame me to do what I do not want to do.

'For example, I do not eat fish, at all, I don't like it, or sausages. He would wake me up at 5 am with a strong desire to eat fish or sausage. So much so that I had to go out right then to buy it and give it to the cat. And as soon as the cat started to eat, my hunger disappeared.' 

The animal stared into space, evidently seeing things humans could not. 

Life was intolerable with the animal and led to strains in his marriage, with his wife feeling uneasy around the 'psychic' pet. 

The clairvoyant from Novosibirsk - some 4,500 kilometres away - mysteriously heard about the cat and came to inspect it, said Dmitry. After a short interview the woman, who is not named but has been labelled a 'witch' by local media, is said wasted no time in paying 5 million roubles - $84,000 - for the 'psychic cat'.

The animal is to be put to work in her seances, he said.

'She is  a clairvoyant, and came with all her paraphernalia,' he said. 'She closed the cat in the room, and then rapidly decided to buy it. She is strictly against journalists, so I cannot name her.

'But I can describe her - fairly young, well-groomed, blonde, and she wears expensive clothes. The lady looks very expensive. She will travel to Novosibirsk with Charlie and we made a special veterinary passport for the cat.

'She deals with extrasensory phenomenon,' he claimed. 'She can see in some beings the object of her interest - and earnings. More than once she stipulated that the cat will pay off. She has a website, and some good respectable clients.'

He's beautiful! L love cats, yes they do seem to sense things that we can't. Also, very intelligent. My cat alerted me on one occasion that the kettle had boiled dry. Sadly, he is not with me now, he passed away several years ago. But Tiger was a character I often like to think that csats come back. I looked after a cat, Dora, for a friend, and she was so like my cat I had in childhood. It was as if Lucky had come back to me in Dora. Maybe that sounds fanciful, but comforting, none the less. I was reading about a cat in Baikal region, and ths cat turned up out of the blue, and seemed uncannily like the cat in this book! I expect there are a lot of "cat" tales that could be told.

Hello. I am a cat as well. I would like to add that we are in fact psychic, and due to this we are close to achieving world domination. Meow. And one more thing: on the internet, no one knows that you are a cat!!!

Another cat lover, U.S - Of course you were the only one who could see your cat, mainly because it wasn't there.

On a somewhat related note you should consider reading Hienlein guessing you'd love some of his stuff.

Actually, most cats are psychic. You just have to recognize it. The owner was sensitive to this fact. I have 3 cats, and they are all kind of psychic, but one ( their mother, my original cat ) is the one most psychic. I worked 1 hour away from home. Some mornings she would look at me like she didn't want me to leave. Then at work, randomly and just for a spilt second, I would see her moving by my foot. Then she'll disappear ( I would be the only one that would see her occasionally there or other places where she couldn't possibly be.).

Definitely not “FAKE NEWS” as a lot of reputed media houses have also published this unbelievable true story.Many “Psychics” or “Godmen/Godwomen” as we call them in India have a mass following and are extremely rich so this sum of money as a “Psychic Advertisement” is not surprising although a first for a cat in recorded memory.
