What a night Thursday night! I was on the bed watching television when I noticed two eyes staring at me from inside the drawer of the dresser. The television sits on top of the said dresser so at first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me and it was from the television. So I turned the television off. I could still see the eyes. Again I assumed I just needed a few minutes to adjust. I waited about five minutes and the eyes were still there.
So I guess I should let you know I have a very intense fear of rodents, especially mice. I also have a cat who loves bringing in his live captures and letting them lose in the house sometimes. So of course the first thought is this is a mouse in the drawer. Running through my head are thoughts of what to do. Shut the drawer and pray the mouse doesn't escape before morning. Scream at the top of my lungs until Don hears me, he's downstairs trying to get the kids use to their new room, or just ignore it and hope it goes away. Well I chose the last option. Less scary it seemed at the time.
About thirty minutes later I become aware that it is now moving in the drawer and it's much bigger than I thought. New thoughts, it's either an escaped rat that is super sized or a raccoon that somehow got lost in our city and made his way into our house. That's when I noticed it was moving towards the front of the drawer. Now it's eyes are focused right on me and our basset hound realizes there is something in the drawer. He's showing signs of being scared. This scares me even more if he's nervous. All of a sudden the creature in the drawer leaps out at my face and the dog.
I'm screaming and the dog just gets up and heads outside. He leaves me to deal with the creature that is now attacking me. It's also at this point that I realize it's our cat and not some super sized rat or raccoon. Why do I always forget he loves sleeping in obscure places where he won't be disturbed?
