"This is an EVP our group, Things That Go Bump MN, caught while investigating the Palmer House in Sauk Center, Minnesota," says Ryan. "In the recording, you will hear our female tour guide say, "Ready to go?" (referring to shutting off the lights and going dark). Right after she says, this you hear what sounds like glass breaking and a male voice saying 'No!'"
To me, the voice sounds like that of a young boy. And it's kind of a mournful "No," as if he doesn't want you to leave. Go listen.

"We had a Siamese cat mix named Siris," reports Autie. "She was the sweetest cat in the world. One day, my younger sister and I were sitting in the living room doing homework. We had all been very busy that day and absent-mindedly forgot about Siris. Well, she meowed and meowed, like cats usually do, but she got nowhere because we were very busy. Then we heard her say, "Hello, guys. I'm here." I got up and she jumped off the table, walked to her food bowl, and sat down. It was empty. The poor girl was hungry and we ignored her!"
A talking cat? Ridiculous, right? Cats cannot talk. They don't have the proper vocal mechanisms to make speech. But should we be so quick to dismiss Autie's experience? Cats obviously can communicate with their owners. With purrs and body language they can let their owners know when they are hungry or when they want to go outside, etc. They do it all the time. So one explanation might be that Autie "heard" the cat's statement psychically. Owners are very often "connected" with their pets, and Siri's consciousness might have communicated with that of Autie and her sister.
Perhaps a more likely explanation is the Autie and her sister were very familiar with the sounds Siri makes when she wants something. Subconsciously, they interpreted those specific sounds as English words, making it seem as though their beloved cat actually spoke to them. What do you think?

An ad for a colonial house seemed like a dream come true, but upon stepping inside, it felt more like a nightmare - a nightmare that didn't quite end when she walked away. This is Margaret's story...
