I was sitting here at my desk getting ready to go online. All of a sudden, I heard something moving inside the cabinet of my desk (right next to my feet). I slowly looked around and saw that Stinkie was still sleeping on the bed - it wasn't him. I knew all the other cats had gone back outside, except Thumper, who had been sleeping in another bed in another room. Besides, the cabinet was closed. So I quickly ran away from the desk. Then, I thought to myself "Well, I have to open it to see what it is. But, no, what if it runs up under the bed or something. What if it's some strange creature." Obviously, I didn't open it. I was too scared that something might run out at me. I didn't really know what to think. So what did I do? I yelled for somebody else to come in here and get it out for me. I just went yelling "Come here! There's something alive in the cabinet! Get it out!" I stayed far back, on top of the bed, while the cabinet was opened. - I've got you in suspense now, don't I? - I bent down (from a far distance) and saw Thumper laying in there balled up in a ball looking at me upside down. She had gotten in there through the hole in the back of the cabinet without me seeing her. I just fell back on the bed and said "Ohhh. Thank God." Then, of course, I started laughing. I wasn't expecting it to be a cat. I thought they were all accounted for. I was thinking more along the lines of "BIG rat". Anyway, that's my silly scare for the week.
