My New House

This all happened February 3, 1998- June 24, 2003. I just moved into my new house Feb. 3 1998 and I was very happy with it. It had a basement, 2 floors and an attic. I started unpacking immediately and about 20 minutes into it, I swore I heard someone walking in the attic. Being a strong believer in paranormal activity, I stood there quiet for about 10 seconds, seeing if I could hear it again. I didn't.

About 2 days later , around 12:30 am, as I was in bed and woke up because I heard footsteps. I said in a demanding voice "Who's there?" The footsteps stopped, and I went to bed. I woke up the next morning to find my door standing wide open, even though I'm positive I closed it. After i got settled in (It took about 2 weeks) I decided to have a look around in the attic. I don't know why I didn't look in there before. I guess I forgot. There was nothing in there accept for some old clothes. I decided to throw them out because they were ugly and I would never wear them. That was a bad idea. That night I heard the same footsteps, only louder. And when I asked "Who is there?" They didn't stop.

They got to the edge of my bed and stopped for a second, then the room suddenly got cold... Really cold. I had to wrap my self up in a blanket tight to keep half warm. About a month went by without anything weird going on, except for the lights blinking, but I'm willing to say that was a power surge.Then, that night I was watching TV and all of my lights go out and I hear something walking down the steps VERY loudly, like a stomping noise. I heard a voice say something, but I'm not sure what it was saying. I just know I wasn't imagining it. I was getting really scared but in spite of my fear I said sternly "Stop it." It went quiet.

The next day, I came home from work and saw about a dozen cats on my porch, like they were waiting for me. I tried to scare them off but they didn't even flinch. They were keeping me up all night meowing so finally I called animal control, but when they got there, the cats were nowhere to be found, but the next day they were always there. So I went to the store and bought a Ouija Board, got about 3 friends to the house, set up about 6 candles and said "How many spirits are in this room?" The thing pointed to the number one. I said are you mad at me?" It pointed to yes. "Is it because I moved into this house?" No. Then I remembered how I threw out the clothes and said "Is it because I threw out your clothes?" Yes. All of a sudden, all of the candles went out at once. I tried to re-light them but my lighter wouldn't light. Nothing else happened that night, but other nights, really weird things would happen, like curtains would blow even though my windows were shut, and doors would slam closed and get stuck while I was still in the room.

Years went by, and I didn't know what to do, untill finally I called a priest to come bless my house. The next day, there were no cats at my porch, and I didn't hear any footsteps. That was the weirdest thing that has ever happened to me.
