Ratty Cats

I'm looking at my pack of four indoor cats gathered around the basement door waiting for daughter to come upstairs -- why she's down there, I'm not sure. She's supposed to be sick in bed.

Anyway, the cats remind me of a pack of rats. It's creeping me out.

The other night, I dreamt that I started a new job, and the woman who was training me said, "We have a bunch of rats who run around on the floor, but just ignore them."

Me: "What? Ignore rats running around, testing my trousers for climbing grip? Are you nuts?"

Training lady: "Really, they're fine. We've even named them."

So I tried to work, but my eyes darted continuously to the floor looking for rats, terror building in me.

Then I awoke abruptly to find the four ratty cats laying on the bed around my feet. Coincidence? I think not.

Do you ever feel like animals take over your home?

    That would freak me out too, but my dog definitely rules the house. Good thing she's not rat-like, at 100 lbs she'd be a scary rat!
