When I was in college my friends and I decided to move to an off campus apartment not too far from the university (Wisconsin). We found a nice complex and the rent was decent. Weird things started happening pretty much from the moment we moved in.
First of all we got an infestation of roaches-which was just ick. Then things were moved around without us moving it. One time one of my roommates was by herself and was studying in her room. When she left to use the bathroom she said the TV was in a complete different place. She got really freaked out. She had a gold fish and one day it was not in the fish tank. She thought it had passed away and that one of us had disposed of it. When she looked at the tank... The fish was back. Anyway one of our roommate's boyfriend moved in with us and we were not happy about it. (He was obnoxious and not very respectful) So me and my friend (the one with the goldfish) moved into another unit. Similar things started happening in that place too and it was in a complete different floor and different side of the building.
One day my roommate came home from class and all the lights were on. She assumed I was home and that I was in my room studying because the door was closed. She sat in the living room and began reading a book. She said she heard voices coming from my bedroom and then thought I was on the phone. She heard a really loud laugh and wondered what was so funny. Right at that moment I walked in the front door from class. She looked at me... Looked at my bedroom and said... I thought you were in your room! I said no... I was at my lab class that evening. She then told me about the voices coming from my room. I got really creeped out and slowly looked in. It was dark and no one was there. We were on a corner so there was no one next door to us so we knew it wasn't the neighbours talking. She said the voices were really loud. Up to that point most of things that happened surrounded my roommate so we wondered if this spirit was connected to her. She had something happen to her as a teen that made her wonder about that.
I had an internship at a TV station and worked the early morning weekend shows. This meant getting up at 4am on a Saturday morning. One day I woke up to the sound of something running around in my room. At first I thought I was dreaming but then for some reason my hand reached down towards the floor and I felt something big and furry like a cat. I immediately sat up and turned on the light all confused. We did not have pets. My door was closed so I knew something could not have wandered in. I looked under the bed, the closet even the drawer but did not see anything (my room was not very big) I then opened the door to use the bathroom... Still kind of in a confused mode. I looked towards the living room and saw a girl sitting on the sofa staring straight ahead toward the window. I wondered if my friend had invited someone over. I think I said hello, and then reached to turn on the living room light on... When I did... She was gone. I remember her clearly... She was blonde, had her hair in a ponytail and was wearing a black coat or jacket. She was looking straight out the window. The odd thing is that I was not scared... Just stunned. I went on and got ready for work and when I got home told my roommate what I had seen and about the cat thing. We wondered if maybe somebody had died in the building.
We made a mention to the landlord but he didn't answer our question directly. My friend eventually got a cat and the cat would run around crazy all the time... Like it was chasing something we couldn't see. I don't know what this was. It was harmless and didn't really bother us... The fact that it happened in both units really made us wonder because the friends in the original unit said things stopped happening there once we moved out. Maybe it was connected to my friend... Or maybe it didn't like my friend's boyfriend either so it followed us. It was an odd experience.
