The Mutilated Cat Ghost
The cat reappeared two years later. The cat was bleeding and appeared to be dying. It finally fell to the ground and vanished. The next day the woman's mother died of a stroke. The cat appeared one final time four years later. It appeared and vanished as usual and the following evening the woman's father died.
The story of the manor's history was excavated some years later. The manor and all its estates had been owned by a young boy. His father had been a knight and when he died he past everything he owned on to his orphaned son. His son was kept in the care of a guardian until he came of age. The guardian plotted to take the estate from his ward. He killed his ward and tortured him. He tortured him by forcing him to watch his beloved cat mutilated and boiled alive before he finally killed the cat and the boy. He then tried to install his own twisted bastard son in the young boy's place. The plot was discovered and the guardian and his bastard were tried and hung for their crimes.
