Tina Fisher, 41, from Frome, Somerset S napping a photo of my two guinea-pigs in their cage, I was surprised when I looked at the photo afterwards to see a little orb in the corner. I smiled. My old guinea-pig had passed away recently – perhaps he’d come back to check on the newbies!
I live with my parents in a haunted house with lots of paranormal activity – but the spirits seem to be pretty benign. Blackcat
As well as the guinea-pig ghost, we often see a shadowy black cat streaking about the place. We don’t have a cat – and the only cat we’ve ever owned was white, so the spirit definitely isn’t her.
One day, I was watching TV in my room with the sound off when I heard a man whistling. He was in the room with me! I followed the sound from my door to the wardrobe, where it stopped. At that point, I legged it out of the room – I’m not scared of spirits, but that was definitely a bit too close for comfort!
We think the old lady who owned the house before we did, pops back to visit, too. She moved into a flat over the road, and passed away about six months after we moved in. Mum and I have both sensed
her presence in the house. Duvetthief But it’s my dad who’s had the creepiest encounter. He was woken up one night by someone – or something – tugging his duvet off him. ‘Whatever it was, it was very strong,’ he told me. ‘I had a real job on my hands to get the duvet back again.’ This has happened to poor dad more than once, now. Like me, he doesn’t need convincing that spirits are real! But we’ve lived in the house for 18 happy years and I’m sure we’ll be there for many more. There are worst house guests than ghosts, after all!
