In September of 1931 in a small farm house on the Isle of Man, the Irving family began hearing odd sounds coming from the attic of the home. Initially, they sounded like a wild animal moving around, but after a time the 'animal' began making sounds reportedly similar to those of a baby learning how to speak. It then began to mimic words spoken by the Irvings, much in the fashion of a parrot.
Within months, the creature, which the family apparently hadn't yet seen directly, began speaking increasingly fluent English, relating to the Irvings that it had been born in New Delhi, India on June 7, 1852. No explanation was given as to how the animal got to Britain. Other paranormal activity began happening around the house, such as objects flying across the room inexplicably. The voice of the creature began spying on the neighbors and reporting back to the Irvings, and shortly after the creature revealed itself to be a mongoose, or something similar and even allowed itself to be petted by Margaret Irving.
. Am I missing something, or has there been other talking mongooses.
Mongooses normally do not speak,

I remember reading about Gef in a book of 'Ghosts' that I had when I was a kid. He lived in a farmhouse from what I can remember, and was possibly shot by accident.

Wasn't this proven to be a hoax? Didn't the daughter come out and say that she made "gef" up because she was lonely?
