This is my first post, and I'm not sure if it means anything but I'd like to hear other people's opinions.
I live in Germany and my apartment (where I've lived for just over a year) is on the site of a synagogue that was set alight and destroyed by Nazi rampaging and violence known as 'Kristallnacht' on November 9-10, 1938. There's nothing strange about the apartment here, and there's a small monument to the synagogue outside.
On the night of 9th November last year I woke up in the middle of the night. It didn't occur to me that it was the anniversary of the destruction until the next day, but the date could be a coincidence anyway... Who knows. Anyway, I took a drink of water from next to my bed and then lay back down, so I know I was awake.
The next thing I knew was I felt something jump onto the bed and walk across it. I didn't see what it was, but it felt exactly like it would feel if a cat walked over the covers - kind of tickling as it walked over my legs. As I don't have a cat (nor any pets) I was extremely freaked out. I then heard a small 'miaow' and felt the pressure as it jumped off the bed and heard the little feet land on the floor. I didn't move after that and must have fallen back asleep, but this is all I could think about for days afterwards.
There's no way a cat could have gotten into the room - I live on the 2nd floor and as it was November and cold the windows were all shut, as was the bedroom door. Nothing strange has happened in the apartment since.
Does anybody have any ideas what could have prompted this? Do you think the fact that it was the anniversary of something rather horrible on that sight has any relevance?
I'd appreciate anybody's opinions about this.
