I leave for work at 4:30am. My husband and daughter are always still sleeping. We live in a one bedroom apartment. Our daughter gets the room and we have a futon in the living room.
At six o'clock the other morning my husband was woken to something holding him down to the point he could not move at all and could not talk. He tried to yell "help" suddenly it went away, but not quietly. He said there was a very loud, deep "whooshing" sound. He said it felt as though something was holding him down, checking him out. Not 2 minutes after that our 2 year old started screaming. When he asked her what was wrong she said she didn't know!
We got a cat about 2 weeks ago. This cat just walked right into our home and seeings as we had wanted a pet we decided to keep her. The cat was sitting next to our daughter's bed just staring at her. Our daughter's lip was bleeding. I guess the cat had scratched her for some reason. That's happened before, but never while she was sleeping.
My brother in law came over that night and we were talking about my Husbands experience. He said it's common for demons to possess animals, especially cats, because cats defend themselves. Maybe my husband's subconscious was using that to wake him up. Or maybe the cat was on our daughter and he was feeling what she was feeling. Or that maybe it was a demon searching for someone.
I don't know. But I do know that I'm now scared in my own home. If there is evil I want it to go away. What can I do? What does this sound like, Am I crazy? I want to protect my child.
