This happened in November of 2010, and I would like to get a wider opinion on what it could have been than my disbelieving family.
It was around 11 at night and I was babysitting a little girl who I have known for over two years, and before then I had never had a problem in the house (despite horrific babysitting clichés).
It was a really hot, humid day and the house still hadn’t cooled down by 11 so all the windows and doors were open, and being in Western Australia the house had quite a number of flies in it.
I was watching TV and I heard a loud buzzing noise, like a fly so I looked over towards the sliding glass door because I thought that a fly making that much noise would be visible from where I was sitting on the couch. My eyes locked on a cat sitting just outside the door, perfectly still, staring at me. It was a very pretty cat, in good condition, but what really freaked me out was that it was 1) looking directly at me and 2) it’s eyes were glowing red.
I freaked out. I mean, I watch Supernatural, I used to read Goosebumps, nothing good could ever come out of this situation, I mean, for God’s sake, I’m a babysitter! I was surely going to die!
Being the forthright person that I am, I decided to refuse to look at it, ignore it and hope that it would go away, praying that it wouldn’t be able to get in as I wasn’t ever going to invite it.
After about five minutes I heard the loud buzzing again, and five minutes after that I worked up the courage to peek at the door out of the corner of my eye and the cat was gone.
I don’t know whether my imagination was working overtime, or whether I truly saw something evil, but I know that I have not been so scared for a very long time.
What do you think?
