“My husband and I bought our first house in 1993. We moved from Bernardsville, NJ to Phillipsburg, NJ. The house in Phillipsburg was built in 1905 or somewhere around that time frame. Our kitchen was an add-on; it was not part of the house when it was first built.

A few years later, my husband and I had a pool put in. We were always finding things buried in our yard, from marbles to parts of a doll.

Ghost Video: Ghost Cat Caught on Film?

New York’s Shanley Hotel is a former bordello with a haunted reputation. According to the inn’s website, eerie events include chairs that rock on their own, chimes from unseen clocks, disembodied whistling, footsteps in empty corridors, and unexplained odors, among other things. However, owner Sal Nicosia claims not all of the hotel’s ghosts are human. And he says he has a video to prove it.

On January 15, 2013, paranormal investigator Stephen Barcelo recorded video of a cat in one of Shanley’s hallways (above at 1:00). However, there were no cats staying at the hotel at the time the video was filmed. Could it be Nicosia’s former cat, an animal that always behaved oddly at the reportedly haunted inn?

“When we moved into the hotel, the cat refused to go out,” Nicosia said. “I couldn’t get the cat to come into my apartment. I would bring her into the room and she’d run right out the door so I started feeding her in the hallway,”

Nicosia also said that he recorded an EVP of a ghost named Claire claiming the cat belongs to her. Do you believe his story? What do you think of the ghost cat footage?
