Recently, I have been noticing a very odd occurrence near my bedroom window. I have a bed right below a large window. The window overlooks a planter
with some bushes.
Close to every night, I hear a quick patting sound followed by a large rustling of bushes. I figured it was my cat at first, but several nights later,
I heard it while my cat was in the room. The cat even noticed it.
After the visits started occurring more often, last night I decided to watch and solve the mystery of what this was. I originally didn't think it was
anything out of the ordinary, I just figured it was an opossum or neighbors cat. I really just wanted to get some sleep due to the rustling waking me
up so often. So I sat with my window open watching the planter and the area surrounding. Sure enough, I heard the patting sound. I couldn't make out
the figure though, and it surely didn't look like a cat.
It was a large black shadow with two very small yellow eyes. It moved very quickly and did not jump or hop to get over the bricks. It simply climbed
over them. I would describe it like a centipede climbs over things. It rushed into the bushes and hid quietly. It didn't even move after it was
Afterward, I went outside with a broom to get it out of the bushes. I didn't want to get near it so I used the broom to shake the bushes nearby. It
didn't even move or make a sound. It was simply gone.
It seems to happen around eleven o'clock, and seems to come at that same time each visit.
I would also like to clarify that I do not see or hear things, and do not have an overactive imagination.
Has anyone seen or heard of something like this?
Also, is there an irc channel I can go to to discuss stuff here on ATS?
