We moved into this fine house, which was only 50 or so years old. It was owned originally by our neighbour's father. He then sold it to move to an old folks home. A family lived in it for almost 15 years. My wife and I moved in almost 1.5 years ago. The disturbances began slowly. A light fixture in our dining room flickers and dims. I ended up having to check the wiring and made sure the bulbs were the correct voltage and dimmer compatible (everything checked out).
Not overly noticeable and and easily dismissable we ignored these events. Over time we bought a new little family member in, our first cat Panda.
Things became more noticeable very quickly after this.
Panda would look past us at something. On more than one occasion I walked into the laundry room (which is below the dining room I may add) and her tail would be fully fluffed out in a scared / defensive manor. My man-cave is a room down the hall from the laundry room. I once held Panda and both doors were open. As I held her she was watching something moving in the laundry room.
Things became strange when one day I came back from work and I went to feed the cat what I saw baffles me still. Pandas food dish which is elevated was sitting inside her water dish (which would be impossible for her to do without spillage of any contents, and the floor was clean and dry. I asked my wife if she had accidentally set the dish in the other in the morning, which she denied. I showed her what had occurred and still she denied it.
The next event was even stranger.
I was in the kitchen and my wife was in the dining room eating breakfast. I then heard a woman's voice say clearly " hmm I don't know" I looked at my wife and asked her " what?" she looked at me with a mouth full of cereal that she was working on chewing clearly not having said a word.
This is not the only time I heard the voice. The second time I heard the voice I was brushing my teeth and I clearly heard " Josh!" being spoken as if to get my attention. I again asked my wife if she had said something to me but she was in the basement away from our on suite bathroom. I have not heard the voice again since.
Another time I was taking random photos with my Nikon camera and I caught a photo of an orb in the dining room.
Once while I was up watching a movie, the cat was on our bed, and my wife was in the basement watching Netflix. All of a sudden we heard a crash coming from the basement washroom. I ran downstairs to see if my wife had fallen, but she was still on the couch looking at the washroom. I walked in the bathroom cat in tow. The shower curtain had fallen down. This shower curtain is difficult to move and there had been no moisture to cause it to slide. This has occurred more than once at random intervals in a dry environment and securely attached to the wall.
The latest events have occurred within two weeks. We bought a second kitten (Luna) and both of them are acting strangely in the laundry room. They both look at one wall in particular and despite me dusting or looking for insects and spiders there is nothing. One time they even followed something from end of the room to the other. The second and by far the creepiest happened last night.
I was in the dining room on the computer when the light dimmed to almost an orange glow. Then turned on again. My wife came in and stood between the dining room and kitchen talking to me when the lights dimmed on and off for a few seconds. Then dimmed one last time and turned normal again. This time as they turned normal my wife flinched and and said in a panicked tone " Whoa I feel weird!" she walked quickly into the other room and said after the lights went normal she got really cold as if something moved through her. Our house is currently at 23 degrees C no windows open or fans on.
These are the current events. I will update if anything else happens.
On a ghosty remark. A few more things have happened. I almost have enough for a shorter story.
