Ok, so to start off... I am reluctant to even post this.
I do not believe in any supernatural entities and I really don't even believe in "god" (I believe there is a higher power, but it is not how we see
it in religion).
You can check my posts and see that I haven't even posted in any topics like this before, I am a science and politics guy...
But I woke up about an hour ago for no particular reason. My wife was still asleep so I came in the living room to have some tea and read what is
happening in the news so far this morning. My cat followed me and was keeping my feet warm while I was surfing the net.
And then we (the cat and I) began hearing a "tap" noise on the wall.
Now I don't live in a huge house, but it is a large antebellum home my family has owned for two generations. I grew up in this house but moved after
college and haven't been back here in close to eleven years. We recently moved back (my wife, myself, and the cat) after my mother decided the
weather was nicer in California.
So this "tap" noise starts out in the hallway connected to my living room/back den. It is only one single tap, not like a rattle or multiple sounds.
And I'm pretty sure it wasn't a usual ambient sound because my cat reacted to it also.
The "tap" began moving along the halls and through the rooms of my house... One tap, and one wall at a time. It would be in almost timed intervals,
and it never seemed to skip a room, or a wall inside the room. For example when it began in the hallway, it started on the back wall, and then I heard
it next on the wall that connects at a ninety-degree angle before it "moved" onto the next wall in the next room.
After the third or fourth tap, my cat ran after the sound into the other room to, I presume, track down what it was. She (my cat) came back a few
minutes later and the taps continued through the house until they came back through the kitchen, and back down the second hallway to my den.
The cat's head is still reacting and turning to face it every time it moves walls, and after it gets back to the door to my den it stops and seems to
About fifteen minutes later it starts again in my front hallway and starts heading to the front rooms where the door is, and you can hear the wind
chimes on my door jingle a little. (I still don't have an electric door buzzer because if someone shows up they know to call and I am expecting them,
so I have a knocker and wind chimes on the door to let me know when it opens)
I open and close my front door dozens of times a day and I know what it sounds like when it either opens or closes, and it was softer than either of
those... Like something brushed them, or lightly blew on them.
The tap started through the kitchen just like last time and started back toward my den, and by this point I'm a little freaked out.
After about two more minutes it's getting closer in the hall behind my den and I'm looking at my cat and she looks like she is staring at me. I make
a kiss noise at her to get her attention, and her eyes and head move slightly my direction to look at me, and I realize she was staring behind me and
not at me.
Needless to say I hopped up, and started walking for the bedroom.
So here I am, a grown ass man, ex military, sitting in my bed next to my wife and cat, typing on an iPad..
I just felt I had to type this out before I go back to sleep and my wife calls me crazy and tells me I was dreaming.
