ENGLAND TRIP: Day 4, Part 8: Hampton Court Palace-.Ghostly Cat and Dog

If you think that ghosts are limited to people at Hampton Court Palace, they'll tell you otherwise. There's a ghostly cat near the Old Information Center in the first courtyard, and a ghostly dog near the kings apartment.  
GHOST CAT - The ghost cat was seen during the 1980s and 1990s by several visitors of the information center. People appeared to step over something. Staffers asked the people what they were stepping over and they said it was a white cat! However, there were no cats in the room.

GHOST DOG - The phantom dog was seen at the King's staircase during the 1990s. It appears to have been heard several times. What's weird is that dogs were banned from the palace by Queen Victoria for the most part. There were exceptions, though- lap dogs... although some were pretty large.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
