Well, to keep a long story short, the title sums up this posts content. My wife and I have two cats and while I've never been a 'cat person' per
say, I have been turned by the cunning intelligence that these animals possess. My wife has owned our two cats for 8 years and 4 years, respectively.
I have been in the picture for 3 years and have seen these cats personalities and abilities to do just this: sit, sleep, beg for food, beg for pets,
and talk. Yeah, I said talk, they meow and as long as my wife keeps talking to them, they will continue to 'meow' in different tones and pitches.
It's funny, really.
Anyhow, the reason for the detail is that these cats were behaving really strangely last night. I work from home and my wife works downtown, so the
cats have a solid routine. They ignore me all day and sleep, then when she gets home around 6pm, they come downstairs, eat a bit while my wife
changes, then the cats go to the living room to get pet by my wife, while I finish up cooking dinner.
Last night, we had eaten dinner and cleaned up and had just started a movie. The cats in their normal positions, either on the back of the couch, or
at our feet. All of a sudden, the our larger/older cat, Avery started to walk away. His hair was sticking straight out, looking 'fluffier' than
normal. He was looking all around, like he had a sense, but couldn't locate the cause. My wife noticed first and said "Babe, look at Avery." I got
up off the couch and followed him quietly to the front door. He stuck his nose in the corner, stood up on his hind legs, and started licking and
smelling the air with his head straight-up. Our smaller cat, Pants, followed him over to the corner and started doing the same thing, but then started
walking in tight circles right behind him. This is when they both stopped what they were doing and walked around the staircase and down the hall to
the door that leads into our garage.
This is where I walked over to grab my cell to record what they were doing. I walked back to the garage door and filmed them acting all weird.
Typically, when I hold my cell phone up, they will cease doing what they're doing, as if they know the purpose is to mock their stereotypical
cat-ways. This time, they kept doing what they were doing. Sniffing and licking the air, walking cautiously, and widening their pupils.
I opened the garage door and they walked off, wanting nothing to do with the garage. I stepped out and felt and saw nothing out of the usual. Just our
two cars parked in their and both the doors shut.
I then followed them inside, to the back patio door. I walked outside to see if there was anything out of the usual I could sense. Nothing out of the
usual, just a passenger plane on an approach path and my neighbors backyard lights on.
When I went back inside and quit filming, I walked to the front door to make sure it was locked. About 3' from the front door I walked into what I
can only describe as a 'field' of static. Every hair on my body stood up, I got a chill in my legs, and then more static. I immediately reacted by
telling my wife to walk through the same place. She didn't feel anything that she thought was different. Then I experimented and walked to where our
cats had decided to lay under the dining room table. They typically go nuts when I get low, and come begging for pets. This was not the case; They
avoided my every touch and then my finger sent a static shock into one of their noses, causing them both to run into the other living room that we
I was like "Honey, did you see that!?" Then I walked back to the 'field' of static. It was in the same place and I felt a pulling on me. That's
all I can describe it as, a 'pulling' or a 'tugging.' It was strange. I felt completely awake and energized.
I live in Cedar Park, Texas. A fast growing suburb of Northwest Austin.
Thanks for reading my novel. Can anyone spread any light on this for me?
