…The first thing I thought was how beautiful it was, then I was terrified it would go after my dog and I knew it wasn’t alone. I backed away slowly and took a short cut out of the woods to walk the tree line back to my house. My dog hadn’t noticed a thing (not unusual for him)….
I lived in a house that was rumored to be haunted by its previous owner. Built in the 1930s, it had some nice historic features like a kitchen door that swung both ways connecting the kitchen to the living room. Beside this door in the living room was a heavy vintage-style bar/liquor cabinet. One night when I was alone in the house, I went into the kitchen to get some wine, pulling the swinging door closed behind me. When I went to push it open again, the bar had silently shifted about three or four inches over, blocking the door. If the bar had been in that position when I entered the kitchen, the door wouldn’t have closed. I was eventually able to push my way out, but made a point to never close the swinging door again.
I shouldn’t have lived in this creepy old house to begin with, it creeped me out the first time I saw it. But I was young and the price was right. The lady who rented it to me claimed that it had been in her family for a very long time and used to be a boarding house in the late 1800s….
…The second time I went here I had feelings of being watched and then as I got closer to this place I got intense feelings of anxiety that were not my own. As if I were supposed to stay away it was like warding me off…..
In the late 1950’s residents of the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan told stories to their friends and neighbors of seeing a large rat-like creature that walked upright. William Liberman of Huntington Woods said the creature attacked his dog and during the fight “leaped over the fence of the backyard” and vanished into the night. “The Whatzit”, as newspapers called it, was said to have enormous ears and a long tail. Over the course of three weeks it was spotted by a number of witnesses.
