Well, here we are again.
For those of you who are new to my blog - you are in for a treat; it's not that long a read - and you'll never have to read it again.
Seriously though; if you are reading this for the first time, then welcome. These are the ramblings of my mind and the wide and varied thought processes that lurk within the dark recesses of my brain. Be warned; you never know what you might read.............
So: do cats watch horror movies? I ask, because we have recently installed a Cat-Flap and our cat "Toby" is still getting used to it. In this settling in period, Toby has taken to approaching the external side of the Cat-Flap, peering through the pane, and meowing to come in. 'The external side of the Cat-Flap has a 'hood' - a top and sides that extend out from the door by about 2 inches, and this gives shade to the pane. So Toby approaches the Cat Flap, comes right up to the pane, and meows - but not always; a lot of the time he just stares through the pane.
Now, this might sound quite normal or even cute perhaps - but believe me when I say it is also quite unnerving. The door in which the cat flap sits is white, as is the cat flap (We're not Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen you know), and the aperture of the cat flap is just big enough for a cat to fit through - which makes sense, otherwise it wouldn't work. Add to this, the fact that Toby is black and white and what you have is the fact that every now and then I walk past the door with the Cat flap on my way to the fridge, and as I do my gaze is drawn to the cat flap because a shaft of light comes through it. Many times I have looked at the vacant cat flap, then obscured my vision as I get something out of the fridge, and then as I close the fridge door I am suddenly confronted by the aperture of the cat flap being completely filled by the silent, staring face of the cat.
