And all this time I've been blaming Madden....

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
For the past couple of months one of my cabinet doors stays constantly open.

In this picture its the top cabinets to the left of the stove that you can only see part of. They are identical to the ones on the right though...



This is the cabinet I keep my spices, Pam spray, sugar, tea etc. in and there isn't any room for a kitty to get in there anyway, but since Madden can open (and close behind him for that matter ) all of my bottom cabinets, I assumed he was the trouble maker behind this one.

Both doors on this cabinet are constantly open, which drives DH and I nuts, we're constantly closing it. Maddens been blamed for opening the doors now for a long while.

Well just a bit ago, I walked into the kitchen and found them open again. I sighed, told Madden I'd appreciate him leaving the doors closed (which only got me a dirty look and a flip of the tail) and then settled on the couch with my laptop.

Madden was right on my heels out of the kitchen and climbed in my lap on the couch. He was not in there alone. After about 15 minutes I got up to get something to drink, and the doors of this cabinet are wide open again!!

Madden was with me the whole time, so now I guess I owe him an apology!


There have been other things that have happened since we moved here including one MAJOR incident that has caused me not to go into the kitchen after DH goes to bed anyway (they say you don't believe it until you see it), so I guess now Madden's off the hook!

I'm thinking ghosts, or a bad hinge.

The hinges are good, the house is level, BOTH doors are coming wide open mind you.


I have full reason to believe I share my house with more than my husband and my fur-babies. I've seen my roommate.

That's scary and exciting. Is it a male/female? Have you talked to it?

Its an older man, I've only seen him once, asked him not to suprise me like that again and have not seen him (fully) again. After doing some research I think its the man that owned this house three owners back, he died while he lived here, although I don't know if he died HERE or was just in residence at the time. I can't find a whole lot of info about him. The only strangeness has been in the kitchen though, which I find kinda odd.

We had a ghost in my parents old house - but she was friendly, so things were good.

Are you interested in getting rid of him?

As of right now, I don't really have a reason too. The first time I "met" him face-to-face, I certainly wanted him gone, but now I've realized that he is harmless. More than anything I'd like to know why he's hanging out in my kitchen!

She used to scare me too (when i was a young teen), but then we offered to take her with us when we went to the cottage to an old delapitated house that had rumours of being haunted. We would go down the dirt road, stop, open the door and go to the cottage and stop to get her on the way back. After that it was no prob - I think she actually did something to scare some robbers. Our house was robbed, but something stopped them mid robbery and they ran out the back of our house trailing goods (from other robberies) thru our back yard. Hardly got anything of ours - didn't even get to my mom's jewellery box. We respected her, she respected us.

Have you tried asking him? I find this very interesting
My cousin has the gift to see spirits!
post #13 of 29
Wow!! That would be so weird! But col at the same time!
post #14 of 29
Since you've asked him not to scare you I don't feel silly suggesting that you also ask him to stop opening the cupboard doors too. Of course, if he gets bored he might start messing with other things then.

First off I want to say that I am in love with your kitchen!! and secondly I see that you also collect roosters-thats awesome!! I do too!!

And third-if I had a ghost in my house I am afraid I would be moving out!!

Thanks for the compliments!! I kinda fell into roosters when we got married, it all started with one piece (which you can't see in this picture) and grew from there!

I don't plan on moving anytime soon!

I suppose there are worse things that he could be fiddling with!



If you guys want, I'll make a new thread and tell the whole story about the night I "met" my kitchen friend. Its a little long, and I'd like to open it up to anyone else's real life ghost stories as well...I've never posted about it before b/c I didn't know there were so many believers here!
post #17 of 29
Pleas do post the story. I have one from a friend I'd happily share there. None of my own but I'm a big believer.
post #18 of 29
Yea please share! I have a few stories.

Of course there are
I've never seen anything that looked "human" with features or anything.

If he/it stays in your kitchen and never really makes you uncomfortable it may more or less be like a recording, playing over and over, not something that will interact with you. Maybe you can try to get pictures?

I think that's really interesting.. Though I think if I saw a ghost in my house, I'd be terrified..

This is very intriguing. When you "talked" to the ghost and I assume it is in English. How do they respond? If they responded vocally, does the sound come from within the ghost? Also, how do they look like? Transparent? Solid? Please let us know. This is all too interesting.

Yes I speak English, and no he didn't respond. I spoke "at" him I guess the day after I had saw him for the first time. I assumed he listened because he has never surprised me like that again.

As for appearance, he was VERY solid. He wasn't the least bit transparent, looked just like someone was standing there. He looked totally real and alive...up until the disappearing part. I never knew they could look so real!!
post #25 of 29
I'm afraid I'd be one of those people who would just talk at them and ask them if they minded not scaring me too much. I believe.... I have seen one that was completely solid looking... although it was a cat.

I lost a foster kitty when he ate thread from a sofa (2m of the stuff - silly creature... we couldn't keep him away from the thing!) but his little sister was still with us. (That's my Bootie-boot). When she got sick through the depression of losing him, she got a high fever and spent time lying on the bathroom floor to cool down. I went to work in the morning and decided to bring her back to work to the vet once I was done with my shift. When I got home, Bootie and my colleagues cat Mille were lying together on the bed.... with Toffi, our recently departed kitty. I swear to God, he was as real and I am sitting here! He looked at me, looked at Bootie, looked at me and put a paw on her. I knew what I had to do.... I said (out loud) "ok, I'm taking her to Tom now" *he's the vet. I went to get her box and was out of the room for 10 seconds.... when I came back there wasn't a sign that Toffi was there. He hung around for a while though to make sure she was ok. When the cats were all sleeping and you knew where they were, there was always a little blue blur pad across the floor in front of you, or you could hear him pad, pad, pad to Bootie and then it would stop. It was really comforting.
