Hi! My name is Jennifer & I'm not a Cherokee Indian. I stayed in a remote cabin for a little more than a week during this past Thanksgiving in Topton, North Carolina. I found this website looking for answers because I know there are Cherokee reservations close to this town. One night,I believe it was the 6th or 7th night, I couldn't fall asleep & went to the bathroom. On the bathroom floor were hundreds of crawfish, many were so tiny but there were 3 big ones with their claws out. They didn't seem to want to bite me, they seemed friendly. I was in shock because I didn't know if I was hallucinating or stepped into some type of parallel time warp. I first thought they were lobster but then my own voice confidently said, "they are crawfish"! I don't know much about crawfish & I was thinking what is going on & why is there such a big crawfish problem in this cabin now & how did I know they were crawfish. We were in the middle of the woods & Lake Nantahala was a few miles away. I never saw any crawfish before this particular night. I went back into the bedroom & there were spots of light coming through the curtains into the room. I see a huge black dog at the foot of my bed. I'm not scared of him & he is just lying there. I get into bed blinking my eyes & thinking what is going on. In the corner of the bedroom, I see a hairy brown looking short alien man. I close my eyes, open them, put my covers over my head, he is still there, the dog is still there & the little dots of light are still there. I glance a few times at him, he just stares back at me. My little boy is sound asleep next to me. My husband is in the other room with my other son asleep but I don't want to move. I lay there in bed thinking when is this going to stop, what should I do so I just try to go to sleep. I waited & couldn't fall asleep. I'm figuring that I'm imagining this still & walk very quickly past the short, hairy brown man & use the bathroom again. Again, there are crawfish except the 3 big ones are gone but there were hundreds if baby ones still. I was so scared of stepping & crushing them because they were so tiny so I'm trying to keep my feet off the floor as much as possible. I go back into the room, the brown hairy man is gone, the dog is gone but the little spots of lights are still there. I check the bathroom, the crawfish are all gone. I go back into the bedroom & the spots of light are gone. I visit Western NC at least 3 times a yr & usually stay in Franklin or Sylva closer to town but have never had such a strange experience. I'm from Florida & love the nature of Western Carolina. Can anyone give me any insight on what this was? I'm not on drugs. I was completely awake. I'm not crazy. I didn't feel threatened at all & the big black dog seemed like he was the protector of me if this makes any sense to anyone. Thank you for reading this.
