Yesterday morning I was actually in the kitchen actually doing something kitcheny with the radio on and turned just in time to see Buddy tearing around the corner into the kitchen, across the floor, and through the kitty door into the garage.
Oh, yes, yesterday was garbage day and the truck was coming down the street. Scaring the snot out of Buddy. Like it does every week.
Now, our big cats will hide under the bed or other furniture when they are scared, but the little ones think that the garage is a much safer place, not realizing that it is closer to the street and the walls are thinner and noises like the garbage truck makes are much louder in the garage.
