I am 17 and live on a farm in New Zealand and have recently had a stray cat show up at my house and made its self at home. My mum took the cat to the neighbours to see if it was their's and she got told it was his flat mates cat who had died the week before. I saw the story in the news paper and he was in his early 20s and was cutting down a tree when it fell on him. The person at the house didn't want to keep the cat so we are looking after it for now.
Since this cat has moved in we have been experiencing weird things, so far nothing extremely scary has happened but it is pretty weird. A few nights ago the tv in our living room randomly turned on at around 2:00am when no one was up and it woke me up so I got up and turned it off and had a check to see if anyone was up, they weren't. The next night we were having dinner and the microwave turned itself on, my mum got up to turn it off and came back to the table then 20 seconds later it turned on again so she turned it of again. A minute later it happened again so she turned it of and left the door open so it didn't happen again.
Nothing like this has happened for a few days now but I am starting to get scared some nights at home. I'm wondering if there is anything paranormal happening in my house but there could be an explanation for all of this. Does anyone know if these are signs of paranormal activity? And if they could be related to the cat moving in? I would appreciate any help or advice in the comments. And if you were wondering if I had any connection to the cats old owner he worked with my cousin and the owner died on his work site close to my house.
