"I was 13 and was babysitting my neighbors' kids. It was my first time, so the parents walked me through all the rules about the bathroom and tv and food and bedtime, etc. Just as the parents were taking off for the night, the mom came back in and whispered to me, 'don’t go into the basement'. I avoided the door to the basement all night until I had put the kids to bed. I walked slowly to the door and put my ear against it. I heard what sounded like whimpering. I ran to the couch and started watching tv to get my mind off of it, but then I heard something fall in the basement and knew someone was down there.
"I went over and opened the door. The whining instantly got louder. I went down just three or four stairs so I could peek down...and I saw...a goat. As soon as the goat saw me, he started bleating loudly. It scared the crap out of me. I went upstairs and the goat was still bleating loudly...so much that it woke up the kids. The oldest girl came out and said, 'Did you open the door to the basement?' I said, 'Yeah, why?' She said, 'When you do that, Carlos thinks you’re going to feed him and he starts yelling'."
This person said that she reckoned the mother had whispered it to mess with her.
