Sissy knew there’d been an interloper, things moved, food consumed under cover of darkness; she’d have them tonight, catch them red handed. Settling down in her chair among the shadow’s she was twitchy jumping at every creak.

Three thirty she heard it, a patter of feet, as they came close she leapt! Knocking a glass to the floor ‘CRASH’ Incensed she scratched and fought. Just then Mark switched on a light. “Sissy, did you bring in a hedgehog”?  He promptly chased them out into the cold night, scratched his head picked up the broken glass and returned to bed.

  2. I swear our cat used to bring wildlife indoors just to hunt inside the house! I love the perspective from the cat and somehow the phrase “interloper” made me think of cat-speak more so than dog. A fun flash with unexpected prickles!
