Is It True That Cats Can See Ghosts? I for one do not believe that cats can see ghosts. If ghosts exist then we can see them and so can cats. But I don’t think that they can see ghosts and we can’t. Our anatomy is very similar. They have some very sharp senses that we don’t have. However, I do not think that these special senses assist them in being able to see a ghost when we can’t.
