So I would like to start off by saying throughout my life I have had countless strange occurrences happen to me from ghostly to the other worldly, and
generally someone else will be there, whoever is lucky enough to be around at the time. I was searching the internet tonight for people who may have
seen something similar, to one event I had, outside their windows when I came across a story that reminded me of two events that I had, that I had
completely forgotten. Most things that have happened to me were more discrete so these two events should have not been forgotten being as they were
very active. And since I did forget until tonight I thought I'd share my story here to see if anyone else has had similar events, and in hopes the
process of typing it all out will help keep me from forgetting again. Normally I don't like to post my own stories here because they happened to me
and I can't prove that to any of you, and I know what happened, yet there are times I'd just like to tell my stories to see if others can relate. So
without further adieu.
It was 2001 ish. I was in my early 20s, and was somewhere in the midst of a one year relationship with a great girl. I lived at a parsonage next to a
church, which is a house set aside for clergy members, but they rented it out and we moved in. One thing we soon realized that made us a little uneasy
was that the many of the doors in the house were much wider than normal. I was told this was so they could fit the coffins and what not's in there for
prep, or whatever. This may have nothing to do with the events, but then again it may, unfortunately there's probably no way to know for sure.
So anyways, The first occurrence:
I had a small twin bed at the time, my room was in what was a large attic converted into a room. It did have a small window and one end of the bed,
where we would put our feet, was against the window. My girlfriend and I had just shut off the tv and were laying down for bed, the door and window
were closed and it was very dark, most likely due to having the lights on watching tv a minute earlier and our eyes not having time to adjust yet.
Just about a minute after we lay down for bed we started hearing what I would describe as frantic noises around the room like there was a trapped cat
in there trying to find a way out. My girlfriend was instantly freaked out she was grabbing me terrified and I was pretty freaked myself. We couldn't
tell what it was but she was begging me to get up and turn on the light which would mean doing so in the pitch black with whatever was causing the
noises in between me and the switch. The noises continued for about a minute until I finally, trying to be brave for my girlfriend, threw myself out
of bed and straight to the light switch flipped it on and nothing. The noise stopped nothing was in there with us no way in or out. These noises were
loud and it sounded like it was knocking things over as it barreled around my room, and the noises were clearly coming from my room, you don't mistake
clear sounds right next to your head.
We told our friends about it, she didn't want to stay there anymore but life went on. It was about a month later things were normal, she was at ease
again being in the room. It's another night similar to the last, we watched tv then went to bed, the room was completely shut. This time I was
drifting off to sleep when the noises started. We were both at that state of falling asleep where you can still hear things but you were almost out.
We heard the noises and it took a few seconds to pull us out of that almost asleep state we were in. But when we did come fully awake it happened at
the same time, and we both came to the realization it was happening again in that instant.
This time however was a little different it didn't last as long. She was terrified holding on to me and I was completely freaked out this time, being
that it was happening again. The window at our feet had horizontal venetian blinds that were fully closed. Right after the noises started and we came
awake I remember thinking I cant just lay here, I have to get up right away and get that light on. As soon as I thought this I got an overwhelming
feeling of something being wrong, it felt like whatever was in the room heard my thought like I spoke it out loud and turned its attention on me.
This gave me quite a feeling of dread, it all happened so quick but a moment later the noise came straight at us, I felt its weight run over me as I
lay there, as it got to my leg it somehow cut me, nothing bad but like a single 6 inch or so long cat scratch. Then the blinds over the window flew
inward towards us, like something from the other side had hit it very hard, which was even odder because they should have gone the other way if
something was jumping through them going from inside the room to outside. Stranger still the window was completely shut.
As the blinds crashed inward, I jerked up in bed with a little scream, partially from the blinds and the shock of it all and partially from getting
scratched the instant before. I got up turned on the lights and nothing just like before. we were both completely freaked out over this for some time
but it never happened again. I got to say the weight of the thing, the scratch, the sounds came from low to the ground for the most part it all seemed
like a cat, or I remember thinking raccoon. But this couldn't be the case as there was no way in or out and we were in there anyways for a while
before watching tv and then searched the room after.
I would think ghost cat but that seems just crazy to me and if there are such a thing as ghost cats how would they get the, I don't know skill, power?
That I would think would be required to cause such events. I'm a very logical person I try to find real, or scientific reasons for things I have
trouble explaining, yet there have been a few events in my life that I've tried to work out logically that I just cant find a good answer for and this
is one of them. The fact that it seemed so small is quite the oddity to me.
Anyways there's my story, these two events did happen to me. I just tonight read a very, very similar story so I'd love to hear your thoughts. And if
anyone out there in ATS land has had something similar would love to hear you story as well. Thanks for reading.
