A Haunting in the Valley

Posted on November 12, 2011

This is a account of the current hauntings in the Home I live in in the City of Chatsworth California. I moved into this house as a guest of some friends of mine and have been here for about 15 or so years.

Soon after I moved into the house I would hear footsteps at night when no one was awake or walking around. Having experienced this before I simply listened to see if it was one of the children or the Man whose home I was living in who at that time was a High School Math teacher. When I opened the door to my room I would see nothing. The footsteps always sounded as if they were walking on a linoleum or tiled floor but the floor in the hallway has a rug on it.

After hearing this for weeks I told my roommates what I was hearing at night. The Wife of my host told me that they had been hearing those footsteps ever since they moved into the house. She also said if I wanted to see a different type of ghost, to watch out of the corner of my eyes when I was watching television in the living room. I did so and ever since then I occasionally see at least 3 different ghost cats.

It took several years for me to actually see the ghost who was walking in the hallways and occasionally opening and closing the hallway doors when either I or no one was home. One night I stayed up late to watch a movie on the TV and when I went into the hallway I saw a dim figure at the end of the hallway. It looked like a middle aged man with dark wavy hair. My Host has white hair and has had it since his early 20′s so I knew it was not him. The ghost walked through the closed door at the end of the hall which was at that time being used as a store room. I continue to see the ghost cats (although there seem to be more of them now) as well as hearing the doors open and close as well as someone walking in the hallway to this day.

      I have not investigated anything per se’ but I have been seeing ghosts most of my life. I have posted 2 previous stories here, one of my seeing my Grandfather in Germany shortly after he died in Mass. The other is about a poltergeist that lived in my Mothers old condo in the city of Stanton CA.

    Wow Raymond, very interesting! More so because I am from the valley. Seems like they are harmless….funny about the cats. Maybe they are reproducing in Kitty heaven.

    Take Care,

      There is nothing all that scary in the house, the ghosts are harmless, even the one that walks around the house mostly at night, although occassionally I hear him during the day.
