Before I begin, I must say that my house is only about fifteen or sixteen years old. We are only the second family in it and the first lived here for about eleven years. I don't know if any of their pets died here, but I know I had a chinchilla who died in the room I am in. Well, this morning I heard what sounded like an animal walking. Actually, it sounded like my cats, and they were in the room, but they were laying down. I heard a slight clack every few seconds, always a few feet away from the last. My cats were not creeped out, but one of them was looking in the direction the sound was coming from, and a few minutes after it started, one stood up and walked to near where I had heard it. While she was walking to the window (she likes to look out at the forest by our house) she looked around her as if watching for something. My cats are very smart, and sometimes they seem to be telling me something. I think animals are more likely to experience paranormal things, especially dogs and cats.
By the way, the chinchilla that died in the room was very sweet. He would run over to the side of his cage whenever I entered the room, and sometimes, I don't know why I did this, but one day he was in his ball and I was imagining him going to parts of the room, and he did it, unless it was to come to me. My pets often become some of my best friends, even though I have human ones. But my human friends don't call me or come over to my house often.
The people who owned the house before us could have had a pet that died, but I don't know much about them. I can't think of anything that would make a noise like I heard, and it's the first time I've heard it. Also, I often feel like I'm being watched in that room.
What do you think it is?
