Funny Story: Cat Ghost

Shortly after my fiancee Daisy's cat passed away, she told me about the "cat eye" ghost in her kitchen window. Both Daisy and her mom were talking about seeing it, and I was very skeptical. So the next time I came over I wanted to see this feline phantom for myself. I saw it, and it looked like a very crooked pair of cartoon-like eyes you see when a cartoon has a scene where the lights go out. Was there a scientific explanation for the cat eye ghost?

Actually it was quite simple, and very easy to figure out. The "ghost" would always be in the same place, and would disappear when the lights were off. I looked around and it was the kitchen light reflecting on two picture frames which in turn was reflecting on the window. One thing in the way of part of the frame and the angle made the "cat eyes".
