were occurrences at about 4 or 5 am when thumping running footsteps (and scratching like claws on feet) were heard in the attic overhead. The footsteps were heavy enough that I could actually feel the vibration in the rooms below them.
The sound went from one side of the attic to the other and back again and around the whole attic faster than any creature could go. This did not sound like human or animal. I described this to Lars and he actually
laughed at me and said it's just squirrels in the attic.|
This became a regular occurrence several times a week. One rare evening tom stayed home and
went to bed early. At about 4 am the heavy footsteps came clunking down the attic stairs. As I pulled the blankets over my head I remembered that tom was in his room on the other side of that staircase.|
I was about to yell to him when I heard him yell ''did you hear that? '' I answered I'll meet you in the hall. We met at the door to the attic - and it was unlocked. One morning I picked up Lars we ate breakfast and we bedded down to get some sleep.
