Here Kitty Kitty


I was living on my own for the first time in the year 2000. I had one roommate. We lived in a fairly new two bedroom 2nd story apartment. On Overland Rd. Between Cole and Curtis in Boise. We had been living there for nearly nine months without anything strange happening.

One night my roommate was staying over at her boyfriend's house. I went to bed around ten. I woke up a couple hours later to a cat walking on my back. I almost dozed back off but then realized I didn't have a cat at that time. I threw the covers off and darted for the light. Of course there was nothing there.

So I'm crazy spooked, this is the first ghost-like experience I've had in a number of years. I go out in the living room thinking, I'll just sleep out here tonight... Yea; I get comfortable on the couch and start to doze.

All of a sudden I hear this huge crash. It sounded like all the furniture on my balcony had been blown over. And in fact that's exactly what I thought it was. I opened the blinds; nothing looked out of sorts so I went out on the balcony. Nothing had been moved in any way. I looked at the next door neighbor's balcony and my lower neighbors as well. Nothing was amiss and as far as I could tell, I was the only one who heard anything

i've had a similar experience.

I use to have a black male kitten with green eyes named Shadow. He was almost a year old when this happened. He got ran over by a car, or train, but amazingly lived. He lost one leg, nobody even managed to fix it. (My parents didn't have much money at the time)
But he lived for about 2 more weeks. Then he died under my house on January 2006, where he was always warm. My guess is, he died from a severe bleeding, or severe pain.

One year later in January, I could here purring on my front porch, while I was sitting on the steps. Then, I felt a rub against my back, and a soft meow, like Shadow would make.

Another year later, I saw a shadow running past my house, I looked outside, nothing was there. Turns out, every January... Shadow comes back. 😲

Just to say, I have an old friend who lives in Napa, Idaho (if you've ever heard of it).
This was a strange story and I'm not sure what to make of it. The cat thing is weird, but the balcony noises really freaked me out.

I've had several experiances like that. Only it wasn't my pet. I once lived in this house, a rental was big, it was haunted. But back to the cat. It was there when we (my family and I) looked at the place for the first time... At that point saw a shadow of it. But one night as I was sleeping I felt somthing jump up in bed with me, I figured (in my sleep, and yes I can analyze in my sleep) that it was Jasmine my earth dwelling cat. I dreamed a small all black cat about a foot in hight, two feet long, and HUGE eyes. They were mahagony colored with a tint of bugundy in them. Shortly after having that dream I awoke and looked at the corner of my bed, where it had sat expecting it to be just a dream... It was still there, staring at me and then slowly walked into the wall

i have had the same experience well the cat bit ofcourse but the crash no

My cat had died on sunday at 1:34am 2007

2 days after his death I felt a weight at the bottom of my bed (he used to like sleeping there) this was at 1:34am, thinking it was my cat I went back to sleep only to realise micro seconds later that my cat died
I looked at the bottom of my bed and the weight had gone

So I understand exactly what happened to you

God bless you 😊

barbhd, it was a lot like you describe, except it didn't last long, just a huge crashing sound. And it did sound like it was on "my" deck.

Years ago I lived in an old house with my daughter. In the middle of the day, I was sitting in the living room and there was a horrific crashing noise upstairs. I ran up to see what had happened, but nothing was disturbed.
The crash was so loud, it seemed like cars crashing up there, or an airplane crashed into the side of the house. The sound went on for a lot longer than if something had just fallen down.
Is that what your crash sounded like? I never did discover what made that awful sound, and moved out of there shortly after.

I had had numerous cats over the years, but not in the entire time we lived there.

I know apartment complexes are noisy, it was the sound proximity that wigged me out.

I don't know if my roommate ever experienced anything, she was pretty much living with her boyfriend for the last 5 months of our lease so I never thought to ask her.

Thanks for commenting

The cat feeling is creepy. Had you lived with cats before? I had one until my roommate and I moved. I still sometimes get the feeling he's jumped up on the bed.

As far as the crash, complex's are noisy. You never know what you're going to hear. You can look all around the balcony and neighbors, but that doesn't mean nothing happened.

Did your roommate ever hear/experience stuff?
