As you all know, I'm cat sitting. Every evening I go hang out with her for an hour or so. We cuddle, play, and just hang out.

Last night the rain was coming down. I had the front door open so the fresh air could waft through. It was nice really. We had a little break through. I told her I wouldn't take any more embarrassing photos of her and she decided she wouldn't bite me...well not bite me nearly as much. So we had an evening of uninterrupted cuddling.

Except there was something a little off. We both noticed it. Every once in a while there would be an odd feeling in the air. She'd look at me with a look on her little face almost asking if I noticed it also. I'll admit it's that time if year. There have been a few odd things happening around our apartment. I tried to ignore the feeling. She wasn't though. Every once in a while, her tail would poof up and she'd get a little jumpy.

But then I started hearing a low noise. I looked around a bit. The cat was looking at me. I turned down the television a little to see if I could here it better. It was gone. I went back to watching the television. Then I heard it again. It was low. Almost a low growl. The cat growled a little bit also. She walked over and looked in the kitchen. Then walked over and looked out the door. Looking around for what ever was making the noise. Then she came back and sat in my lap again.

I was trying to decide if it was far off thunder. I heard it again...we both heard it. The cat and I looked at each other as the low rumble turned into a growl. It was so eerie. I was frozen. I couldn't figure out which direction the noise was coming from. It sounded like it was right next to us.

I really wanted to turned up the tv and ignore it all together. But there was no ignoring this now. The growling was getting louder. I muted the television completely. I sat there and waited for it...the tension in the room grew and the growling started again. Man I wish Mario was here....wait a minute! Goddamn it, Mario!

I was leaning against the wall that we share with our neighbor. On the other side of that wall is our couch. Where Mario was passed out snoring very loudly. That growl I was hearing was Mario snoring away on the couch!

Can I tell you how frightening that sound is through the wall!!! It sounded like something demonic was in the room growling at us! I stormed back to our apartment and woke him up "goddamn it Mario! You scared the shit out of me over there!"

Then I started thinking about it...oh god, I don't want to know what sexy time sounds like!!!

  1. You know one of the first nights I moved in I heard him snoring and it scared the living daylights out of me.
    Now it's just kind of funny.
