Ghost dog claws on the linoleum, a common pet haunting.
When I was a kid (10?), my dad had to go to work at 4:30am. The dog thought this was too early and when mom and dad got up she would climb the stairs, thumpa-thumpa-thumpa, walk to my bed, tak-tak-tak (ghost dog claws on the linoleum), and jump onto the foot of my bed until I had to get up to go to school.
After the dog had passed on, every once in a while I would hear thumpa-thumpa-thumpa then tak-tak-tak (despite the fact that my bedroom now has wall-to-wall carpeting) and then hear AND FEEL a weight at the foot of my bed.
I’m told by other websites that this is a common pet haunting.

I would agree, James. We have several on this site describing the sound exactly as you do. Pet hauntings in the kindest sense by both dogs and cats seem to be frequent and persistent. Read similar stories in our archive of Pet Ghosts, Animal Ghosts at DreamWatch.com
Little boy ghost in the closet. “Strange things started to happen…”
This is my paranormal experience about a little boy ghost in the closet.
My grandmother was sick with cancer and so my grandparents decided to give me her canopy bed. Strange things then started to happen the days after. Every night around 3:00 am on the dot my closet door would open and a little boy would walk out. This happened to me for seven days straight.
“I can still describe this little boy ghost in the closet.”
He had on dirty old clothes, he had pale skin, bowl hair cut, and dark eyes like the dead. He would stand at the foot of my bed for about 15 minutes or so then he would turn around and walk back into the closet. I am still afraid of the closet to this day.

“A female figure standing over me.”
I don’t think this female figure is supernatural, but no one can explain to me what exactly it is, so I put it to you here.
This happened in 2014. I had been having vivid dreams and centered a lot on death, or the passing of a loved one.
I woke up to a female figure standing over me, but I wasn’t scared, in fact I looked, rolled over and put my back to it and went back to sleep.
“A cool breeze on the back on my neck.”
My sleep has been interrupted for a while now and one day I felt a cool breeze on the back on my neck multiple times—inside the house. Once I actually thought someone was blowing on the back of my neck and I turned to confront them—except I was alone in my own house.
This morning I’m hearing wind chimes. There are none unless the neighbor got some yesterday.
Anyone had anything similar happen?
