When I was 3 my family moved into this house where this old lady lived for a long time. She said she had to tape her crucifixes to the wall because they would fly off. Our landlord warned us that she might be a little crazy but harmless.The house looked like an old Victorian, or colonial which isn’t typical of the area.
A little after a month later, I wake up to go to the bathroom and when I came out I saw a black figure sitting on the stairs leading to the attic. I got scared and hid under my bed but it came to look for me. All I could see from under my bed was a pair of glowing yellow eyes and I could hear a purring noise. It reached out and touched my hand and then ran off somewhere. The next day I saw it by a dried up creek near the house. It spoke to me in a raspy whisper and it pointed out a snake that was lying still. He told me to jump over it to make sure it was dead. The snake was dead but my mom almost had a heart attack when she saw me play with it. I told her the “Cat Man” told me to do it and she dismissed it as an imaginary friend. This thing was tall and skinny, wearing black and had the face of a hairless cat with the glowing yellow eyes.
I moved with my father when I was 6 but for those few years I would wake up with scratches all over my body. The only one I know of that has seen the Cat Man was our neighbor’s German Shepard and he chased after it for hours. The Cat Man tortured me for 3 years and I couldn’t get anyone to believe me.When my oldest son turned 3, he told me about a bad man that likes to scratch him, too. I never once mentioned the Cat Man around him. He has a few scars on his body I can’t account for and he refuses to sleep alone in his room.
I have another son that is turning 3 in a couple of months, and a daughter that is 8 months and I worry if the same thing will happen to him. I thought “imaginary friends” were supposed to be friendly.
Did something evil attach itself to me? If it did, can it go after my children, too? How do I get rid of it?
