True Ghost Story: Tall Dark Figure

Location: Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Shawn on May 7, 2013:

“I am now 18 years of age. When I was around 6 years old, me and my family were living in this small house. I always slept on the couch. I would randomly wake up screaming, my parents never knew why. But this one night I was just lying awake and I look towards my sister’s room and all of a sudden I seen a really tall dark figure just staring at me. Then it went into her room. I was so scared after that. But nothing else happened after that night until a few years later when I moved into a bigger house.

My room was downstairs and my sister’s room was upstairs. One night I woke up from my sleep, and got some water, and layed back in bed. Then all of a sudden I seen a big black figure walk up the stairs. I couldn’t believe I seen that same figure. But this time i wasn’t scared.

Then just recently my sister got her palm read, and the women said a dark spirit is attached to my sister and is following her. It is so weird how I’m the one that seen it and my sister hasn’t! But my sister was really bad as a teen, so I’m wondering if the spirit was making her make wrong decisions!”

True Ghost Story: The Cat Comes Back

Location: Niagara Falls, OntarioCanada

The following report was sent into our website by Gladys on Oct 11, 2006:

 “One evening after my husband had been out, he came home to find a black cat in our kitchen which had come in through the open door earlier that evening, unnoticed by myself. We decided to keep her, she was starving, obviously a stray. We named her “Peek-A-Boo”.

Approximately one month later we realized Peek-A-Boo was pregnant and soon gave birth to three tiny black kittens. We had to force her to stay with them and take care of her kittens. As being a stray all she wanted to do was leave the house instead of being a tending mother to her babies.

One day about two weeks after the kittens were born, I walked in on her attempting to chew the head off of one. Horrified, I called the SPCA in our area and took Peek-A-Boo there where they decided to put her down, saying she would not likely be adopted out due to her nature.

It was the following spring that my husband and I were re-tiling our kitchen floor, getting ready to sell our house, that I first felt that Peek-A-Boo was a ghostly presence in our home. I was sitting on the kitchen floor about to install another tile when I felt a brushing against my left hip. I looked to see if it was Screech, one of Peek-A-Boo’s kittens we kept. There was nothing around me. Curious I got up and looked for Screech, finding him curled up asleep on my bed. It puzzled me, I told my husband about it and we shrugged it off.

Three days later as I was in my kitchen doing dishes, I felt a brushing at my ankles as if a cat was doing a figure 8 around my feet. I looked down expecting to see Screech, and again nothing. This creeped me out severely this time as I knew I was not imagining the soft brush of cat’s fur. Once again searching for Screech I found him laying in front of the fireplace.

I am convinced Peek-A-Boo was making contact of some kind with me, never feeling hostile, always a loving touch, I now feel easier with having to had to put Peek-A-Boo down. This is my ghost story, although involving an animal, a true story none the less. Thank you for letting me share.”
