Then I saw some shadowy figure with a cap just staring at me. |
He just stared at me for about 2-4 minutes, maybe more. It felt like time didn't exist so I can't tell.
So then he suddenly dissapeared, and I felt a huge rush of fear, and I felt pressure on my chest, even though I could
still breathe, like that guy was choking me or something. Then I woke up.
Sounds like a Shadow Person?
My daughter used to see these when she was going through a lot of stress.
As the for the "cat feet", they may very well have been from the deceased cat, in which case I'd say it was more protective than harmful. Pets sometimes seem to stay around those who loved them.
As for the other experiences, your friend needs to learn some grounding and shielding. It seems the high stress triggers these experiences for some people. Could that be an issue?
