In my previous story I explained the only experiences of the paranormal that I had had up to that point in my life. As I previously said, I'm still unsure whether to believe in the paranormal or not but I have recently had some odd experiences which I will share now.
Since my last story we have got two new cats since my last one passed away. They would often display behaviours that I had thought unique to my last cat, almost as though they were copying her. I did not find this too disturbing, more comforting to think my last cat was still here. As I said in my last story, I thought that she may have hung around for a while after her death as I was convinced I saw her walk past doorways several times.
Anyway, the female cat we have is much more nervous and sensitive than her brother. A couple of weeks ago she was sat in the doorway to the kitchen, half asleep while I was in the kitchen. As I went to leave the kitchen she sat up suddenly and began staring down the other end of the kitchen. Her behaviour was not scared but she was definitely watching something I couldn't see. I began to become unnerved, being home alone and, being religious, acted in the only way I could think. I sat down in front of my cat and, after failing to distract her, said The Lord's Prayer. After a couple of seconds my cat laid back down again and looked at me half asleep. I thought this to just be a coincidence and headed to the lounge where I could still see her in the doorway. After about 5 minutes she repeated the same behaviour, looking in the same place. Now getting quite disturbed I again said the prayer and she once again relaxed.
I did not feel any malevolent prescience or any of the sort, but the idea of something being there was quite unnerving! Every now and then both cats will stare at the ceiling or randoms spots in the house. They never look worried, just curious. Could this be a spirit of just the cats being weird?
Another event that happened in my house was pretty creepy (for me anyway). I was sat in the living room eating lunch, home alone again. My iPad was lying on the sofa next to me. Out of the corner of my eye I saw it unlock itself (not the password part but turn on the screen) and drag down the calendar and events button. It freaked me out because it was right next to me and I definitely did not touch it, but I put this down to a glitch. That is until after I told my mum and my sister. The next day the same thing occurred on my mum's iPad and the same with my sister's the day after that. Again, I felt nothing malevolent, another coincidence or something more?
The final thing that occurred was when I was at work. I work in an old pub and I am often there late into the night. The pun is quite creepy and I often feel like there's something watching me that I can't see. One evening a glass threw itself off the shelf in the bar. It could not have rolled off accidentally because no one had touched them recently and the glasses were quite far to the back of the shelf.
I'd like to mention that all these events mentioned occurred since I stared working at this pub, I've only been there a few weeks. If it is a spirit, is it possible something has followed me home?
Sorry for such a long story and thank you for taking the time to read it, I would appreciate your views on this.
MrMonty, could be wrong but I think MissSkeptical meant the glass was flung from a shelf. Not from across the room. I never thought of it being one of the customers though, that's a good call. 😊
