SOooo SCARY!!!!

OMG, my heart is still pounding & fingers are shaking as I type this..!!

Honey on the couch dozing off so I decide to check on Chocolate in the backyard. He's got a muzzle on, the, grrr, neighbour's son taunts the dogs from his upstairs window. they don't have a screen on the window making it all the more convenient for their CAT to be wondering in & out... and "tanning" on the rooftop. yes, this drives Chocolate ABSOLUTELY BONKERS....

so anywho, I step outside & I hear a neighbours' dog barking in the distance... but no Chocolate. I look around & decide this barking noise... is coming from the shed.

It's Chocolate! he's stretching out the muzzle with EVERY continuous bark...

wtf??! he's jumped over the lawn chairs stored there, grrrrr! & he's barking like a MANIAC at something behind a door that lying on its side against the wall....

I run in the house & get the squirt bottle (haven't used it in YEARS!)

once I've tacked the door to the shed that's been stick in the icy snow, I start squirting that sucker... he is NOT listening.. all my rational thought goes out the window.

I'm starting to thinking he's cornered a skunk (one walked past me 6 feet away last night)! ... or a snake, then I think to myself it's WINTER, Aggie :rolleyes:

ok, so what is it? it's not meowing or hissing... I'm wondering if it's simply a fallen treat, geez... there's NO sound coming from behind the fallen door... I wait... is it a squirrel? a racooon?

moments later, I hear GROWLING, as tho it's a miniature BEAR...!!

BUt Chocolate's been sprayed so much he's whining... and the fact that the mystery animal (?) hasn't appeared. He walks towards me & take him home by the collar (THANK GOD FOR THE COLLAR!!!)

so behind the screen door, Chocolate, Honey & I are waiting and watching what's to come out of this shed..... .....

It's the NEIGHBOUR'S CAT!!!!!
