Was working at computer today when suddenly had eerie feeling I was being watched; slightly unnerving as teenagers were at school and husband was at work. Slowly turned around and there was cantankerous cat – sitting 6’ behind me. Upright, poker straight, unblinking and staring at me. Just sitting there – staring at me.
I stared back at her. She stared back at me.
I refused to look away. She refused to look away.
I hung on. She hung on.
I yawned. She licked her nose.
Eventually she admitted defeat – blinked, stood up, stuck her tail in the air and walked away. I grinned.
Yes, I’m aware that makes me slightly ridiculous for engaging the cat in a staring competition…I don’t care.
She started it.
