It was a cold and misty night and everyone was getting ready to sleep. In those days, I used to throw off my quilt while sleeping. So, my mother told me to close the door and asked me to get into my sleeping bag.
As, a child I didn’t listen to her properly and went to sleep without closing the room door.
The much-needed warmth of the sleeping bag provided me comfort and I was soon fast asleep. In the middle of the night, the strange sounds of snoring startled me. I woke up and tried to look around and the sight froze me.
It was a cat lying beside me. The furry creäture was lying so close to me that I could hear it breathing heavily.I was so terrified by that intruder that I let out a loud shriek.
My family arrived to rescue me but before they could reach my room, they saw a cat running outside. In fact, my piercing sound was enough to wake it up from its dreams of mouse and cheese.
Later, my mother scolded me for not closing the door and I was so terrified to see the hair of cat beside my pillow that I preferred to sleep with my sister for the rest of that night.
I have often been asked about the reason of my bitter attitude towards the cats. So, this is the reason. I admit that all cats are not bad. But, that intrusion in my room made me so terrified that despite all my efforts to reduce this fear, I have still not succeeded in discovering any innocence in this cat family.
I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings because I know that most of you love their cats 🙂
Still, I wonder if you have something similar to share. What animals are you afraid off?
