This is a cross between ghost and animal…a ghost animal actually. My brother and I saw this ghost cat on multiple occasions, together and separately when we lived in that neighborhood in the late 80’s/early 90’s. It was the shape of a cat and moved as a live cat, but made of oil slick. Like, swirly rainbowey car oil in a puddle, but in the shape of a cat. It came into our basement once but usually we saw it out in the street on 8th Ave NE. We called it, Ghost Cat, as you do.
