We have a Bengal Cross kitten who is 7 months old and she has always been very happy to sleep with my fiancè and I at night (either on the bed or inside her cathouse), but for the last two weeks she refuses to sleep in our bedroom. Every night that I try and put her with us on the bed she starts making hissing sounds and bolts back into the lounge.
She seems to be sleeping in the room during the day when we are at work, but never at night anymore.
On numerous occasions myself or my fiancè have been woken up at night by the feeling that our kitten has jumped on the bed with us, heard cat footsteps on the carpet in the room or felt cat paws tugging at our feet, but when we switch on the light to investigate, our kitten is fast asleep in the lounge.
We have been sensing that there is another cat (in spirit form) in our bedroom as we often hear a cat licking itself when ours is not present.
We close all windows at night as our kitten sleeps through and only wakes me in the morning to open the window for her.
She has this cathouse she loves to sleep in, but lately she doesn't want to anymore. Last night I decided to move the cathouse to the lounge and she happily got into it while purring and fell asleep right there.
My fiancè and I are finding it very disturbing that our kitten avoids the bedroom at night and somehow we get the feeling she is seeing something present that we don't. She seems very afraid of whatever is present and this is not acceptable for us.
The flat buidling we live in was built in 1954 so I assume there would be many cats that would have passed on.
How can we get rid of this entity and make our kitty a happy one again?
