    uuuh, that cat sounds wierd! It is interesting to note ‘poltergeist activity’ mentioned. Is this how it was commented on? I assume the term Poltergeist in relation to anamolous kinetic movements,draughts etc is of fairly recent vintage.

    Interesting point lilmunky.  I have tried looking for the original text for the Puddle Dock case but have not found it yet, so I don’t know if they actually use the term poltergeist or not, though others writing about the case in more recent years do use it. 

    How old is the term poltergeist though?  It may be interesting to try and find the earliest reference to it.
