who always crosses herself when she takes her daily walks and walks by our house. Neighborhood cats conspicuously avoid our front yard except for when chasing squirrels that run up the old tree on the street. The squirrel will run up the tree. The cat will suddenly notice something or maybe someone and then hiss at seemingly nothing, but with their hair standing up on their backs. They will hiss, do that arched cat back thing, and run away. Like I said,
we live in a seemingly boring house in a boring non-descript suburban neighborhood. But we have ghosts.|

Purchasing a home is a very exciting experience, and so was what came along with this Panorama City home located on Van Nuys Place and Cedros. A beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, swimming pool, garage conversion into a 1 bedroom, small kitchen, and 1 restroom was more than our family of six expected. The walk through of the home was unusual, as my husband and I and my four children were viewing the home with the realtor for the very first time. My two daughters and I decided to walk into the house from the back yard while my husband and my two boys stood with the realtor out back by the pool. My oldest daughter was in the restroom on the left side of the house if you are facing the pool, and I was standing in the kitchen with my youngest daughter asking her if she liked the house.
This would be our first experience with the ghost in the home. We heard four hard pounds on the bathroom door. My daughter yelled out ''what!'' As I did the same thinking she needed a napkin tissue or towel. Moments later, it happened again, the same four loud hard pounds on the restroom door. Being very annoyed, and upset now because of the bangs, and very embarrassed, I yelled out to my daughter '' what do you want?'' My daughter feeling the same way, and responded to me with the same annoyed tone as she opened the door. As both our eyes made contact, we both knew automatically that the pounds we heard came from neither of us, and exited the house.
Weeks later we moved into the home, and late at night we would hear footsteps in the front room. I had seen the apparition of a woman in a long nightgown petting her cat sitting in the front room on my couch by the window. I also had an infrared camera set up to monitor my youngest daughter while she slept in her room. One night as my daughter slept on the couch in the front room, I set up the baby infrared camera so that I can watch her as I folded clothes in the laundry room. To my surprise, I saw the transparent lady with the long nightgown, sitting at the foot of the couch watching my baby sleep. I could not believe my eyes. As I ran to the front room flicked on the lights, the apparition that I had seen had disappeared. I lifted my daughter and prayed and safely put her to sleep in my bedroom.
