I never really believed in ghosts. But I am starting to change my mind.
About a year ago, when I lived in my family's old house, I was laying in bed. The lights were odd and I was just dozing off. That was when I felt it; a cat, jumping onto my bed and curling up beside me on my blanket.
I don't let my cats into my room at night; one of them chews on my hair and the other will jump onto my dresser and knock things over. I keep a lot of breakables there, and I naturally don't want them falling over and breaking on the floor.
I turned on the light and sat up, preparing to get out of bed. I looked at the place where the cat had curled up next to me. Nothing was there.
Needless to say, I got really freaked out and started crying. I ran out of my room and told my mum about what had happened. She said it must have been my imagination. I do have a very strong one, but I could not have imagined that. I swear I felt something, with four feet, jump onto my bed, and I can swear just as firmly that it was a cat. I am a Christian and I don't give much thought to ghosts, as there is not much evidence of people trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead in the Bible. But then, what did I feel?
Just a few days ago, in our new house, it has started again. The ghost cat jumps onto my bed and curls up next to me. Other times I am convinced I feel the mattress moving up and down as if it's breathing. Still other times, a person sits on my bed, but no one is there.
I've stopped being so freaked out, as they have not hurt me in any way, and the thought has crossed my mind that perhaps they are there to guard me. In any case, I am rethinking my belief in the existence of ghosts. Perhaps they are real, how else could this be explained?
