Cat on a hot tin roof
Last night we had a cat on our terrace! I heard some noises in the middle of the night. At first I thought it was H fumbling, then I heard a sound that could be a bunny's thumping so I went out to see if everything was ok. As I opened the door, a creature, H I thought, scampered in direction the bunny fence and "the forbidden zone". I followed just to make sure the fence was properly closed. As I came closer, this creature leaped over the fence and landed on the window ledge outside the bathroom. I was petrified, realised it must have been a cat. I rushed back to H's house and found her inside (innocent!) - completely indifferent. With shaking hands I put the hatches back on to lock her in and ran inside. Luckily nothing had happened to H. I’m still scared. And poor cat, taking a stroll on a 6th floor hot tin roof is not very self-preserving in the long run.
