A Feather In My Clock? Someone's Being Original


Before I start I'll just say that before I posted this story here, I actually posted it on a partner site-a ghost story one. I later found this one and wasn't sure where the story fit in, so I decided to post on both.


I suppose I should start with a tiny bit about me, with this being my first post. I'm 13, female, and I have no brothers or sisters. I have a pet dog who will probably be mentioned, but my other animals probably won't. Lastly, I love feathers, and I collect them, from big flight feathers to little fluffy "chicken butt" ones.

Alright, let's get to this story, shall we?

I've been away from home for some time, spending time on a holiday with my mum. My parents don't live together any more, but it doesn't bother me. My point is that no one was home, and my dog was staying with friends. No one had a key to our house but us, ether.

Now, when I got home, I walked into my room to dump some stuff on my bed. While in there, I noticed my alarm clock, which I keep on the bench beside my bed (of course) was ticking weirdly. I thought that it needed a battery change even though the time was right, so I went out to help my mum and then, before going to bed, took a battery with me and opened up the back of it. When you open the back, there's a box in the middle that has all the wiring and such. Outside of that box is empty space, and there's a lot of it. I'd never put anything in it though-it was a good stash place but it hadn't occurred to me to put stuff in it.

I have mentioned my feather collection earlier. Said collection sits in a basket on the other side of the room. I'd checked that, too, and it was still way over there.

When I opened the back of the clock, there was a feather in it. A little "chicken butt" feather (a small fluffy one). If there was any way it could have gone in then I wouldn't be writing about it. So, needless to say, there was no way for it to get in unless someone opened the back of the clock and put it in there. I asked my mum if she'd touched my feather collection and she said that she hadn't.

I shrugged it off, put it back in the basket where it belonged, and was about to change the battery-but then I realized that the ticking had sounded normal again once took the back off it and so I didn't bother.

That was last night. I haven't checked again, but I'm still a little puzzled. It definitely happened, too. I asked my mum this morning if I had asked her if she'd touched my feather collection and she said I did, so I didn't dream it.

So I guess my questions are obvious. How? Why? What or Who?

Thanks guys.

Thank you again for your input 😊
I am glad to knowit may just be my rat... She was an awesome little critter and I'm confident that she was fond of me. Also, sorry for not replying straight away-I have taken my computer to one of the technicians that work at the school I go to and it is currently getting a new fan put in it. Apparently this was a design fault and has happened to a lot of them after about this amount of time in use.

Well I think based on some of your replies to the other comments it might have been your pet rat who had passed. I am not sure on the computer part though, I know what you mean by it is an old computer. I my self have an old computer and sometimes have issues with it. But all the while I still think it was the rat just letting you know that it is still there. Hence why it would not be a threatening spirit and you haven't really felt anything before.

That does sound kind of interesting. I really should look this stuff up.

And no, no one close to me has recently died. I had an aunt that died late last year, but I never met her and by the way everyone else in my family talked about her, I don't think I want to have met her anyway. I know that's mean but...

Although I had a pet rat a few years back, whom a loved, and she died while I was on a holiday... She used to drag all kinds of things to the top of her cage to 'nest' in... I bed she's play with a feather if given one.

Thanks for your help

I thought so too, but like I said, I wasn't sure. Read the paragraphs above ^^^ I mentioned my pet rat, who died a few years ago. Maybe it was her, and I'd ask how she opened the clock, but... I mean, I'm sure she'd find a way around it, if she really did come back...
Thanks for the help

Umm... Hmm. If I really put a lot of thought in it I'm sure I could think of one or two things that went missing/turned up in strange places, but I don't think so. My computer started to malfunction about two or so weeks before we left for the holiday, and since coming back I've had about five problems with it that I haven't had before-plus the one issue I had before I left. Not sure if that's just my computer being an old computer of if something's messing with it, though...

I'll say that I have never felt uncomfortable or unhappy in my house, so if there really is a spirit here then it doesn't seem to be a bad one.
Thanks for the help

Such things like SLIders exist (Street-Light-Interferences). They are regular people who can control their energy to make electronics go wonky or things like that. It's quite a fascinating study-you should google it.It'd probably help your case,too.

Did someone recently pass away from your family/a friend? Feathers do mean many things in different cultures,friendship,grief,sorrow,etc.I imagine the spirit slipped it inside your clock as a reminder, and was curious if you still remembered...

This sounds like a ghost incident. Has anyone you know, met, or loved passed away recently? Including pets.

Well it is defiantly an interesting story but I am not quite sure how to answer this. Did you by chance notice any thing else that was strange? Like other things get to a different place with out anyone touching them? Or electronics acting in ways that are not normal? This is just to help clear things up for me. I asked these questions because I think it might be a spirit but there is not much for me to go on in this case so any other incident that is out of the normal day to day life, will help.
