I am beginning to think I may have ...

... a Poltergeist!

First my freezer drops dead, then the 'fridge, then the ice cube maker. This morning my computer CD player said it 'couldn't read' the disc that played perfectly well yestermorn, and now - just come back from shopping and found a picture that was hanging peacefully on the wall when I went out - sitting on the sofa!

The cats were cowering behind an armchair - when I asked them about the painting they spat at me and fled - last seen on top of the wardrobe in the bedroom!

Help - somebody send for an exorcist!

Oh Tabby. My neighbour said that to me earlier. It must be something in the air.

There's a new book out about poltergeists, apparently it's flying off the shelves.

Was the picture held up by picture wire? Sometimes it rusts and snaps.

Just a thought... maybe the painting fell on one your cats..or all.. so it would explain why they were cowering. Even if it didn't it must have scared them.

Ooeer! Spooky ST!! We never know what goes on when we are out! I often wondered whether the little figures on my Christmas Tree came alive when we weren't there because I would always find several of them lying prostrate on the carpet whenever we returned.

Perhaps a ghost was trying to scare Techno cat, Nemo, because he had broken all the electrical gadgets by pushing the wrong buttons!

Perhaps the kitties were chasing a crane fly or something and jumped up, knocking the picture.
If not, it's a spookable!
