Two minor events, but things are "picking" up in the trailer. I thought we had handled the previous spirits, but now I'm beginning to wonder - did we get rid of them? Are there new ones? Allow me to explain two recent events that have made me wonder what is going on in my place.
Cats are weird; no doubt about it, but recently my kitty Drizzit has been acting even more "off" than normal. Recently she has been watching things that I can't see. We do get a lot of indoor bugs (spiders and waterbugs anyone?) so I figured that she was hunting tiny little flying bugs. Well last night a strange event went on that still has me wondering what went on and should I be worried?
Last night me and Drizzit where sitting in the living room, playing video games. Other than us, the only other living creatures in the house where the fish. Suddenly I hear a noise like someone saying "SHUUUSH" from my Kitchen, loud enough that I paused my game and looked into the kitchen, same as Drizzit. She hopped up and wondered in there, beyond my line of sight. About five minutes later, she came back out in the living room and rejoined me on the sofa.
An hour passed and again I heard a noise, loud like the first time, but I couldn't make out what had been said. Again, Drizzit hopped off the sofa and this time I followed her. She sat at the edge of the carpet, about 2 feet away from the edge of the cupboards and fridge. She was staring at the floor, in the corner where the fridge, cupboard and floor meet. There was nothing there.
I reached down to pet her and she didn't move, make a noise or jump, just stared straight at that corner. After a few minutes, she got up and moved closer, crouching down about 6" from that corner. Then she started moving her head as if she was watching something crawl or move around. I stood roughly 2 feet behind her, also staring at that corner and saw NOTHING. No ants, bugs, spiders, anything. There was nothing moving around.
She continued tracking something until she stood up and watched something move away from the corner, following it with her head. Then she stood, stretched, meowed at me and went over to eat some food. I toed the corner, looked in the cupboard and fridge. Even got a flashlight and peered underneath thinking there could be a waterbug under the fridge. I couldn't find a thing.
I don't know if I should worry about what she saw or just put it off to "cat weirdness". This is strange behavior, even for her. Any ideas?
About 3 weeks ago, we had company and I picked up the living room. I put away a certain item in it's normal location, the top center drawer of the dresser in my bedroom. A few days later I went looking for the item and could not find it in the drawer. I figured the hubby maybe moved it trying to get something else out of the drawer, so I looked in the rest of the dresser only to come up empty handed.
Failing there, I checked several other locations that I know we sometimes shove stuff (junk drawers) and came up empty each time. A quick text to the hubby landed me the first location, saying he saw it in there yesterday.
For the next 3 weeks, I would remember that I misplaced it and start randomly looking in drawers and other out of the way hidey holes, but I could never find it. I found tons of other stuff I squirreled away (hair ties, cat toys, that pen my company gave me 2 years ago) but never that one item.
Well this weekend I was stomping around the house, completely annoyed that I could not find my stuff, I know I put it in that drawer and it was not there. Out of sheer annoyance, I stomped into the room, muttering under my breath about "how that damn thing better be in there", yank open the drawer and low, right on top of everything there it was. There is NO way I could have missed it in that drawer, I checked and so did the hubby and it was not there. I slammed the drawer shut and turned to leave, speaking out loud, "Don't move my stuff damn ghosties".
That was this past weekend (11/20-11/21) and shortly after the above "strange kitty" event occurred.
