What a night we had here last night!
Everything was nice and peaceful until about 3:00 this morning. I usually sleep with M until about that time, when we both get up - M for a litter box break and me for a snack break!
i then got up on my window perch like always to patrol and snooze until M and D get up for the day.
This is what I was doing at 3:00 a.m. when IT HAPPENED!
Some intruder of a cat climbed the bush right outside this window and was clinging to the screen. You can see the bush really well in the top photo. I started yowling and so did the intruder. D sprang out of bed out of a dead sleep! I shot off the perch, landed on the bed, and zoomed off for the basement. where I stayed for a long time. D did come down there with me and tried to sooth my nerves cuz i WAS MAD! How dare dat other cat come over here and try to climb my window! D is mad too cuz dat kitty left holes in his window screen. Now he said he'll have to replace the screen.
M asked D if he got a good look at the cat, and he said no. All he saw was something clinging to the screen with ears and it's mouth open, hissing, and me putting up a ruckus! It was very very dark outside.
This same thing happened about 4 days ago too - only it happened about 8:30 at night when everyone was still up in our house. This time it happened in the wee hours of the morning. M is not happy and told D we'll probably have to keep that window closed or we may have to cut down the bush so no cat can climb up there anymore.
M wishes people would keep their cats indoors or on a leash because it's a real problem when they start visiting other houses with a cat in it. We don't usually have a problem with ferals in our neighborhood. This is probably someone's pet who they are now letting to start roam. We live in a city - not in the country where there is lots of room to roam around. Plus our city has an ordinance about keeping pets on a leash or in their own yard!
Sorry for ranting pals, but this really upset me last night, and I'm normally a very peaceful little guy!
