I should have guessed

So I was cleaning around the house tonight when I noticed that heavy winds had blown down the make-shift cardboard window blockers that I had wedged on either side of my air conditioner. You know, those side pieces that keep the hot air from coming back in? So I figured, here’s a good time to actually cover them in plastic and tape them in place.

So I do, and in the process of sealing them around the conditioner, I see a pair of eyes staring back in the window at me from the dark. Keep in mind that there’s absolutely nothing outside this window other than a tiny square of rooftop, and I’m totally in my underwear!

Believe me, I nearly jumped a foot! But, of course, it was my cat, who had obviously snuck out onto the roof and was giving me a very quizzical “Why are you taping my door shut?” look. So I had to take the whole shebang down, lure her back in with kitty food and start over again from the beginning.

Ah, these silly kitties!

  3. LOL. That must have sent your blood pressure up! Leave it to a cat to make a blah process interesting!

  4. LoL my cat did that once too. It does give one a fright!

  5. Ha! There’s nothing freakier than the cat stare, is there? I almost didn’t notice the kitten curled up with her because it’s so tiny. How sweet!
