    Text Nothing spooky I suppose. But I was walking my dogs once along our usual route and we saw something odd. S There's a few other people who walk their dogs here but generally it's just you and your dogs The route we go cuts through a forest and then follows the outskirts of the forest in a half loop before it cuts back into the forest to head back to the start. One day l'm walking my dogs and way off in the distance on a hill I see two animals come over th

    Text A couple of years ago I slept over at my sister's house in my baby niece's bedroom. At 02:38 am I was woken up by a small dog getting onto the bed with me and settling itself down to sleep. I reached out to touch it, it was really comforting but then I realised my sister's dog was downstairs and definitely not little. I reached for the dog again but it had vanished. Sister told me my niece woke up every night at about 3am and I've always wondered if it

    Text My grandma had a Welsh Corgi who lived to be 19. The week after they put him down, the next-door neighbor came over and was surprised that the dog, who was very protective, didn't bark when he knocked on the door. My grandpa told him that they had put the dog to sleep a week ago. The neighbor got really serious and said, "No way. I've seen him every day standing under the big tree in your front yard." We took this as a sign that he was still near us

    Text When my grandfather passed away we sat on his front porch later that night and 3 great horned owls flew over our heads. My mom busted up crying saying that when her sister passed away a great horned owl flew over like that, and when my grandmother passed away 2 owls flew over. I'm very curious if when my mother passed away the same will happen for me.

    Text living in Western NSW, I was out exploring the area when I saw a When I was kangaroo with unusual markings - it had a white face. A while later I mentioned what I'd seen at the local pub and everyone got quiet then quickly changed the subject. I find out later what I'd describe was considered a bad omen in the local dreamtime, and I totally believe it. It gets a little odder. It wasn't a totally white face, it was like a white skull marking. It sti

This could have an guys suddenly stood up on his hind legs, looked around, and sauntered down the opposite side of the ridge and out of sight like a guy going for an evening walk.

    Text I might have posted these before, but I have two: In college, my roommate and I we're walking around town at like 2 am (not drinking, just..weird kids) and we passed a dead cat in the gutter. It was a calico, big brown spot on one side and an orange one on it's face. Rigor mortis had set in, and there was a kind of greasy smear coming from under the head. We guessed it had been mashed by a car. We walk down to a park, wander around, and come back the sam

The wind was blowing and clouds were skimming across the moon and the trees were tossing wildly. I got spooked since we lived way out in the country, plus Halloween plus spooky stories. I actually felt then saw Padfield come out of the moving shadows from the was hit by а car place he usual

    Text When my mom was dying, she kept talking to my deceased grandmother. She'd tell me all excitedly, "today me and Grandma watched the cardinals! They were so beautiful!" I thought it was odd bc my mom was never a bird person. In fact, my mom about her best friend who was this big bird watching groupie. Not my mom. So when she went on and on about the birds she watched with Grandma, I knew it was real always joked Fast forward to her death. I kid you no

    Text I used to live up in New Hampshire and for a brief period of time was having semi-frequent encounters with shadow people. At the time I had a job where I wouldn't leave work until about 1am and I lived in a densely wooded area. For a while it was bad enough that when I'd get home at night l'd be scared to get out of my car and walk to my front door. Then one night I was driving home and as I came around a big bend I looked up and at the edge of the tree lin

    Text I had 5 other people with me at the time it happened. We were camping in southern Ohio at a private camp grounds. It was about 11PM and we were walking to pool that was at the front of the site. When all of a sudden it looked like a large black cat (about the size of a mountain lion) was crossing the road about 60 yards in front of us. As it gets about half way across the road it stands up and walks (like a person) into the woods. We were all about 16 years

    Text Growing up we had horses. I lived in New England and we had lots of area to ride on a hill (the town called it a mountain, but they had delusions of adequacy). One time I riding and my horse stopped suddenly and refused to move forward, he then moved ere traveling, a little panicky. I looked and could barely make out the talking to our local 'town historian' and he was telling me of the lost smallpox hospital up there (in 17th century New England, if y

    Text My girlfriend and I had just had her boxer put down after a lingering illness. I had a dream a few nights later of her dog coming into the kitchen and then leaving, and of me turning to my girlfriend and saying "did you see that?!" In the dream, she hadn't. I was asleep a few nights later and had a vivid dream of her dog coming into the room and jumping up onto the bed, then lying on my chest. I could feel his weight, and I struggled to come out of sl

    Text When I was a teenager, I went to a two day music festival, and while I was gone my mother decided that was a great time to have the dog l'd had my whole life put down. (She was really old, and I knew it was coming, but I wanted to be with her). So needless to say I was heartbroken, couldn't stop crying, and as I'm laying on my bed I feel this big whomp, just like when she'd decide it was bedtime. I could feel her curled up against my back, all warm, and

    Text My cat used to run down the hallway at top speed and jump onto the bed every night when I would tell him it was bedtime. The day after he passed away I turned the kitchen lights off and told the dog it was bed time, then heard the cats collar bell and footsteps hall. It happened a few more times and then stopped for years. About 2 years ago when the dog got sick it started happening again, every once in a while at first and then every night for the

    Text My cat died suddenly. It was less than a month after I had my second child, so I was a little distracted. I will always feel guilty about it. I went to my doctor within a week of my cats death. My dr looked at my back and asked if there was "something I wanted to tell her." There were scratches (according to her) that went all the way down my back and were bleeding. It looked like I had been attacked by an animal. I rushed home to look in the mirror and
