Default Looking at the ceiling

Delilah and Stella often stop what they're doing and look up at the ceiling
.... almost as if the laser pointer light is there or some such
distraction... but nothing. Does anyone else's cats do this and any idea
why?

Yes, Holly does that. Then I will also stare intently at the ceiling
because she looks like she has seen an insect -- but I never see anything.

Sure! It's because "cats see things that we can't."
(This is a funny cartoon by B. Kliban, done
in the '70s.)

My Gnarly, when we lived alone, loved to wait
until late at night when I was studying, then
stare intently at the bedroom closet door,
like there was something in there.

They are most likely looking at the tiny flying insects that you
carelessly allowed to come into your home! Man, are you dumb!

My theory is that it's a cat mind game - if they get you to look, they
win.

I sometimes think they're able to see ghosts..........
