Was It My New Haircut? June 14, 2017

Filed under: Cats,Fright,Katerina — Janet @ 10:59 pm

I returned home today following having my haircut.  Nothing radical – just a bit shorter.  I went to the back window/door  and saw the cat – BRIEFLY.  When she saw me she leapt out of her box and ran like a streak of lightening across the deck, leaped up on the railing and jumped three feet across the gap to disappear in the foliage of the neighboring trees.  How could she do this???  I was really scared that she had come to grief – a broken leg? or worse?  Well about 5 minutes later I was relieved to see her sitting on the fence post on the opposite side of the house.  She proceeded to come up the stairs to the deck but she was obviously quite shaken – and very wary of the slightest sound.  Cautiously she sniffed around the deck and eventually, gradually came inside.  She was breathing hard and I could almost see her still shaking.  A very scared cat.  What did she see??  or sense?? Had she been daydreaming??  And was suddenly startled to see me there?  I honestly don’t think it was my lovely new haircut.  Husbands and cats tend not to notice such things.

    She probably heard something—as you know, cats have very sensitive ears!
