Something strange in your neighborhood? The pet parent in this story certainly has reason to believe so after seeing what seemed to be a ghost on camera.
The woman, who goes by @ileensilva on the video sharing platform TikTok, checked on her Furbo pet camera after getting an alert that her dogs were barking. She saw the dogs run to the window to investigate the disturbance, while something even more insidious began to move right behind them.
A blanket draped over a couch begins to move–a bit too lifelike for an otherwise inanimate object–almost as if it were breathing. Meanwhile, the dogs continue their auditory assault on passers-by, completely unaware of the ghoulish goings-on elsewhere in the room.
According to the Mirror, the woman shared the video on TikTok, perhaps asking others if they believed the blankie was possessed by a spectral spirit, or just blowing in the wind. Some of her followers were justifiably freaked out by the breathing blanket, but several cynics wanted to see more before they could believe.
Without knowing more about the metallurgic properties or ancient cultural relevance of this home, it’s hard to tell if the blanket was moved by realms beyond or a perfectly placed draft.

Believe it or not, this wasn’t actually the first time such “paw-ranormal” activity has been caught on the popular Furbo camera. Though the ghost in this video is eventually “unmasked,” it’s no less hilarious for a hound-based haunting.
