Years ago I was up late watching a scary movie, Paranormal activity in my basement/man cave
The glass stereo cabinet door popped open (spring loaded magnet so it has a distinctive "click-click" sound when opened) and slowly swung open.

This stereo cabinet is on fake hardwood and I leveled it so the door does not swing, it stops wherever I put it...and after this even I tried it and sure enough it did not swing on its own, it had to be pushed or pulled

so as it slowly opens I see through the reflectivity of the glass someone sitting on the recliner next to me...blurry as it was dark in my basement...I quickly glance over and of course nothing there

I look back and glass door is fully open and no longer reflecting off the recliner...I got up and moved it back and forth so the recliner would reflect again, NOTHING there

I left it at a certain spot and sat back on couch, still nothing on the recliner...scared the hell out of me...turned off the scary movie, put on a comedy, and turned all the lights on LOL

my youngest daughter at the time came downstairs halfway through the comedy, very late, and said "daddy, stranger danger"...I jumped up "WHAT"...she said "someone is sitting on the edge of my bed and scared me"

took her to our bedroom and told mom to hang tight, if she hears commotion get gun out of cabinet

I went into daughters room and...nothing...no sign of anyone...I was so sure my daughter saw something by the way she acted that I took a hand gun and searched the entire house...closets, under beds...woke up every one (hid the gun from other kids) and found nothing

very scary...there were a few other things, nothing horrible, just scary...eventually moved

Along the lines of what others are getting at. When we watch these things we sometimes invite them in with our focus or attention to it. So stop watching these things and they're less likely to manifest. If you have unwelcome visitors tell them they're not welcome and ask them to leave. Then invite your angels, guides and guardians in for protection and ask the arch angels to remove anything not of god from your home. They'll do it instantly. They can be everywhere and with many people at the same time.

My wife would say that you should take steps to "protect" the house. I've heard her tell someone to light some material and let it smoke while you walk it through the house as a cleanse (i think it was sage or frankensense (sp?) ). then put salt in the corners of the house.

I'm pretty sure you can find these activities on the Internet.

If this activity is indeed from spirits of deceased individuals, then it is my belief that it depends on what the spirit's previous belief system was.......i.e if the spirit was a believer in Christianity during their lifetime, then Christian symbolic rituals might have an effect, similarly if they believed in Buddhism then Buddhist rituals may have an effect.
In other words there is no one cure for all, but you have a better chance if you know something about the spirit that may be causing the phenomena.

Depending on your age and gender, it could be you causing the activity without knowing it. Women, especially ones in their teenage and possible child years may create what some call a poltergeist through mental stress without even realizing it. It is a form or PK also known as psychokinesis or telekinesis. Even if you don't fit the general criteria you can still consider this as an option. Another answer may be it is a wondering spirit who decided to cause some mischief before moving on it's way or may have stayed, likely leaving after awhile though. The cup for example could have been you causing it because of the program you were watching at the time it may have influenced latent abilities you may have , I would suggest trying to move a cup or even a pencil without touching it, it may take practice, but this could indeed be a possibility. The cabinet could have been due to an unnoticed earth tremor or the house settling and causing the cabinet to open, this one is more likely to have natural causes. As for the cat toy, it could have been your water pipes or something else of that nature that may have been sounding near or under the cat toy that only made you think that is where it came from. Unless major activity that can't be explained by any other minor means, I wouldn't worry, it's likely to not be a big deal and just a few minor incidents that may all be related or just happened in sequence of each other with no relation at all. I do hope this was helpful to you.
