I had just moved into my new home about two years ago. But as I moved in, I noticed that things would go missing from a certain place and wind up in another a couple of days after it was gone. I would hear footsteps and someone running around my house. And when I would go to investigate, I would find my windows open and once I even found a patch a black, dog-like hair stuck in a little crack in the window. So from then on I would lock all the windows and I even put locks on all of my doors from the outside, so if anyone ever got in the house, they couldn't get into my rooms.
After about a month and a half of peace, I thought nothing could happen again, but one night out of no where I was sleeping with my cat in the room when I heard a noise outside of my window, like a scratching noise. I tried to ignore it, thinking it was one of the stray cats that wandered around sitting on my window ledge. Until my cat started to hiss and her back arched, she was looking at the window. That's when I got worried.
I got up and pulled my curtain back to find a very weird "thing" outside my window standing there. Although I only got a quick glimpse of it before I screamed and it ran away, I saw a very hairy animal with the body of a human and the face of some kind of monkey with a big wide nose and a small forehead.
Since then I have moved to another room in the house and put those burglar bars on my windows and porch so nothing can even have a chance of getting into my home with out me knowing it. Another thing is that my ex-neighbor has said that she actually saw the creature in her son's nursery on a nanny camera, standing over the baby's crib then walking to the window and climbing out at around 6:58 p.m., which made her move and burn the tape after her husband saw it and didn't want news getting out about it so no one could bug them about what happened. Let it be known that there is a thing sort of Bigfoot around these parts and to beware.
you have a paranormal tale to tell?
