So the other morning, we were running and I saw a cat running across the road. I didn’t think anything of it. It happens, right? My roommate slowed down and I got ahead of her. Oh, I thought, that’s not one cat, it’s three. How odd. Cats aren’t really social like that, are they?
They were ahead of me on the sidewalk by some garbage cans and I ran straight at them. If I knew anything about cats, I knew they’d scatter. My roommate fell even farther behind. They didn’t scatter but they did retreat up a driveway together and my roommate immediately caught up with me. “Kitties!” I said.
“Uh, those weren’t cats,” she answered. “They were raccoons.”
WHAT?! I laughed, a little nervous. “Well, I guess I’m glad I didn’t know that. I would’ve been scared.”
“I WAS scared,” she said.
