As many of my readers know...I suffer from insomnia and have for almost two decades now. I stay up late not because I want to but because I can not go to sleep. This does not mean that I sleep late in the mornings either. If I go to bed at 6:00 a.m. and my mother decides to get up at 6:30 a.m. well that is the time I get up...after all I can't sleep!
Last night around 3:00 a.m. I heard a big thump on the kitchen door..thought how odd...then I heard it again! I have my computer set up in the dining room which is right next to the kitchen. Went to my bedroom to grab my gun and returned to the kitchen where I yelled some...uhmmm...let's say choice words...and threaten to shoot.
Turned on the outside lights and shined my flashlight out the kitchen window but could not see a thing. With my gun in tow I went outside but all I heard was a cat meowing...and meowing loudly. There is a small opening under the kitchen door and perhaps the cat tried to fit under there...and that is where the thump noise came from?
First thing this morning I was out playing Sherlock Holmes but did not find anything out of place or unusual...however I kept on hearing a cat meowing, like a baby cat but never could find it. This evening I was on the south part of the property feeding Walter when I heard the meowing again. Maybe a cat is about to have her kitties?
It was a hot day, even at 7:16 p.m. the temperature was 90 degrees.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
