I had a cat once. It took a while to find a good name for him so we called him Hairy because of how many times he would shed. We got him when he was only a month old.
So I was a Freshman in high school at the time and I had just got out of school and was on a whole week vacation. My mother left a note on my table when I got back saying she will be gone for the rest of the week so I can be on my own. I was so relieved when I saw that because I was thinking, “Finally I have some time to myself.”
I decided to just chill out the first day, do nothing and hang out. I was gaming until midnight 2 A.M. until I decided to hop off and go to bed. I fell asleep on the couch that night. Knowing my luck I was awoken by my cat meowing obnoxiously and scratching the couch.
“Stupid cat, go away. I’m trying to sleep.”
He went to another room.
About a half hour later my cat zoomed out the room after meowing a lot. He seemed focused on something but I couldn’t see what.
I woke up the next morning and my cat was still acting weird. Sometimes terrified. I held him sometimes to play with him and calm him down. 15 minutes later he’s back to the same routine. Meow, run, meow, run. I was getting annoyed by it. So I went to the room where he meowed and stayed there for an hour.
Nothing happened at all.
He didn’t even meow. So I eventually left and went to go sleep on the couch again. I was asleep until 3 in the morning until I heard scratching on the couch again. I put my arm down to the couch to pet my cat thinking that it was.
But when I pet him what I felt wasn’t my cat’s fur.
It felt rough and not like fur at all. I looked to see and as soon as I looked. I was staring at the face of something nonhuman, disgusting. It smiled at me. It had claws as sharp as a razor and its teeth looked black and gunky. I passed unconscious after I saw it.
I’m 30 now I have my own house and a good paying job. My house is OK but that’s not the point. I swear I could still see that face. That smile. And at night I think I can hear breathing. Sometimes I feel it on the back of my neck.
