Suddenly that puppy isn't cute anymore.

Sorry for not replying sooner. Since our OP is pausing the thread for the time being, thought I'd post to help keep it active.
I misunderstood your original post, but your explanation not only makes sense but fits the other experience I mentioned.
Besides the bedroom where one door had to have a brick on the floor as a doorstop and the other refused to stay locked (the last [original ?] owner
passed away in that room), whatever force were at work in that home was trickster-like
with my aunt's cat.
Just as she's had two or three people check the door that would close behind you in that bedroom (all experienced in construction & all said the door
frame was plumb, level & solid) before I'd ever moved in, she and "P", her friend and co-renter, looked themselves as well as enlisting the help of
"P's" boyfriend and others yet were never able to find how the cat kept getting back into the house.
As you've said, it was cute at first but became kind of creepy over time because it made no sense. The winter I was there was very
weather set in early and by November and December there were stretches of a week or longer where the temperature was below freezing. Logically, you
would think that any opening big enough to let an adult cat in would have had an easily noticed draft. I even tried using a candle figuring the flame
would give the "secret" pet entrance away.
In spite of never finding the answer, the cat could be put out and would later walk into the room. There wasn't even a pattern to it. She was as
likely to come trotting down the big oak staircase into the main floor front room as she was to walk out of the kitchen. Just one more mystery I
don't know if the house ever gave up.
Just to be clear. I feel as someone else has posted earlier in this thread. What I've experienced of the paranormal is nothing I look back on fondly
and I would be quite happy to spend these final years of my life living a mundane, uneventful existence. Also, it might seem oxymoronic but there's
still enough of the skeptic in me that my gut feeling is that the Truly paranormal isn't a regular occurrence for anyone. That's where those types of
things create the "trap" of feeling Special.
