So like a year ago, one night after I finished brushing my teeth and went out to the kitchen,as I looked out the window,I noticed our motion sensoring lamp that is right above our door flashing repeadetly. I thought it was our cat,but I still wanted to be sure. As I stepped out of the door,I noticed my cat was already sleeping. At this pont I started to freak out a bit,because I have had several weird paranormal experiences around my house before. As I was sitting in the kitchen scared and trying to figure out what it could have been,my lamp went flashing crazy again. Right after this,I started to hear some kind of loud whining,or evil laughing of a baby..it didn’t last that long,just a couple of seconds. I have no idea what it could have been. The most simple answer would be a ghost,however neither me or my parents don’t know anyone in my family that would have died at such a young age here.

Hedgehogs? They make a most unholy row, and will often set off motion detectors, but nobody ever looks down...

Sounds very scary though. Love to hear some more of your weird experiences round the house! Welcome to the board.

Could an insect or bat (chasing said insect) have set off the light? Could the noise have been from your cat? They can make incredibly unnerving noises when so disposed, which is often child or baby like.

Welcome :)

As others have said, I would postulate an animal of some sort... fox? Or could be an electrical glitch of some description perhaps (which would not explain the noise you heard, though). The thing is, noises that can seem perfectly reasonable if you can see the source, can take on a whole other meaning if you're already in a heightened state of panic or anxiety and cannot see where the noise is coming from.

Do you have a camera attached to said motion detector, (something to consider if this event happens again)?


The thing I don't understand about ghosts and motion sensors is surely there would have to be something physically there for the motion sensor to detect.

Don't forget to keep you feet and arms u.der the covers for the same reasons you have already mentioned. If any appendage is poking out of the bedcovers then they will take you/eat you/replace you/wear your skin. Just stating the rules is all!

Bed covers have magical, protective powers.

This reminds me of the time I heard something thumping against a 2nd story window where I was trying to sleep. I thought it was a bat, a not unprecedented invader there. They carry rabies, so I finished the night in another room, too scared to look behind the curtain. It turned out to be a poor moth trying to get out.

I've got young tawny owls in the tree outside at the moment. They make a kind of 'squeak-whistle' noise when they are calling their parents for food. It's fine and birdlike when you know what it is, but I can imagine someone who's never heard it before, finding it a bit scary.

It's eldritch, that's what it is.
