This story was told to me by a young reader of my bulgarian blog "Misterika". I am receiving readers accounts every month but this is one of the most intriguing cases that I ever came across.
That girl first appeared as a reader of my blog around 2015. Her young age (16 at that time) was not a suprise as a lot of teenagers are visiting Misterika thanks to the ghost stories. She was persecuted by vivid nightmares almost every night. We (me and other readers) tried to help her by giving her some advices how to get a better sleep and get rid of nightmares. It seemed that nothing works (or only worked for a short period of time).
Then at the end of 2016 something strange happened. I have described it here:
Next months nothing extraordinary happened to this reader of mine. It seemed that things are getting back to normal. Up until end of September / beggining of October. The girl did not remember the exact date as she told me what happened weeks later (at that time I was in very bad condition and even had a surgery so I lost contact with most of my readers for some time).
This is her story.
That evening I was angry for something (I don't remember the reason now) and I went out to sit on the stairs. One of my cats immediately came to me and laid near my feets. This cat always come to me because when she was small I managed to join her to other cats and they stopped chasing her. At one time I noticed that the cat is looking at the direction of the centre of the village. I live on a place that is somehow elevated and some things can be seen from here - like the local school. At first I did not pay attention to the cat but she continued to stare at that direction so I looked too. What I saw was something like an aeroplane, or at first I decided that this is an aeroplane because of the lights. But when this "aeroplane" almost reached the roof of the school it started to move backwards and then disappeared. I thought that it might be hidden behind one of the trees but the first time this object passed the trees I saw it was not small enough to hid behind them. I waited about 5 minutes but this "plane" did not appear ever again.
From that evening the cat is acting strange. Every morning as I am going to school that cat is coming with me. First several days she was accompaning me only some distance away from my house but now she is coming to the centre of the village where she waits until I catch my bus and then she goes back home (note: this girl is not studing in the local school, she is traveling to the nearby big city). One day the cat tried to stop me with every possible trick, she even laid on front of me and I almost miss my bus. That day was awful, did the cat knew what was coming? But this is not all. That cat is acting so nice to me only at the morning when I am going to school around 5:00. That cat was always with me before and always cuddled to me every time I sat somewhere. From the appearance of the "aeroplane" this cat is acting very coldly toward me most of the time and always looks around as if she is expecting something. In the few times she laid to me, she did not relax, she was always on the alert. I noticed that cat sometimes sits at the corner of the terrace looking for a long time in the direction of the village centre.
This was the story of my reader. First let me say that I believe that this case is real and not a reader's fantasy. Through the years I have communicated with a lot of readers and sometimes I manage to catch people who likes to make things up ( believe me - not only teens but people of all ages like to fantasize). I don't think that is the case this time. Something happened in both stories this reader told me but is it paranormal? As always I tried to come up with rational explanations.
About that aeroplane that went backwards. When you are looking at a moving object and it is on the same level as your vision, it might look that it reverses its direction when actually it is turning. I tried to ilustrate this with this picture:
The plane moves from point A through point B to point C. But for a observer on the same level it might looks like it moves from A to B and then in the opposite direction back to point A.
About the cats. They are strange and temperamental animals. They may change their behavior for no reason. I have had a lot of cats through my life and I have seen how a cat temper change. So in this story all might be just normal.
Still is there a posibility that we are dealing with something extraordinary here? Is it possible that this is a case of years long alien observations (abductions?) of this girl? Did the cat sense it? I wonder are there any famous abduction cases in which some animals take important part (besides owls that propably are false memories hiding aliens) ? I remember one case that I read in a bulgarian UFO book. I think it happened in Russia and almost the whole forest (including trees) rised up and prevented an abduction from aliens. I am not sure if it is a real story but anyway I will try to find again this case. I have a lot of bulgarian UFO books that describe events from Bulgaria, Russia and Eastern Europe as general and I think a lot of cases are still not known to the english-speaking world.
Anyway, back to this case - does anyone has any suggestions?
BTW I just realised something. This is how the previous article ends:
Next days that girl had strange vivid dreams. Up until that encounter she had nightmares very often. Now they cnanged to strange confusing dreams in which her cat is replaced by a cloning. Other people are repaced too.
Now we have a strange cat behavior for real. WTF!
