That's hilarious.

SHE was the noise. She was screaming to mess with me. And she knew exactly what she was doing. I should add a clause about her voice being hoarse. :)

Unfortunately my own version of fried cat story was real, but fortunately I hadn't left the room so it was an almost-fried-cat story! I still don't understand how I missed him, maybe because he was black, but after a few loud thuds I realised what had happened - and out jumped a very wobbly black cat.

Oh my. Hannah was devious enough to know exactly what she had done. I suspect she chuckles about it daily when I get in the shower.

Kim, thank you so much. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was surreal. She's great.

Actually produced sounds suspiciously close to “hehehehe” - and then snorted.

Our cat Boopsie would send congratulations but she doesn’t give a damn about anything.including the mouse that’s living off her friskie treats in the kitchen.

Cats are absolute taskmasters who like to pull you back into line should you ever make the fatal mistake of not doing what they want, despite you never fully understanding what it is they could possibly want from you.

That's exactly right. What's one to do? Sweet, loving, and highly manipulative. Thank you for reading and for the restack. I appreciate both.

So...the horrid screaming was because why? You dared turn on the dryer while she planned on sitting on top? Wtf Hannah?

Cats are just a superior race who think us humans are complete muppets 😁

I looked after my brothers cat one weekend. Unfortunately it was at my flat and not his usual home so he sprayed all over everything including myself prior to going on a night out 🙄

That's for sure. No shenanigans.

Oh, be fair: there are plenty of shenanigans! It's just that dogs are checkers at shenanigans, and cats are Deep Blue.

Hahaha. That is the best story. Cats are so clever and ridiculous.

Different version of Cat Scratch Fever.

Hehe, you know, this is my biggest fear, that one day I'll turn the dishwasher or washing machine on and our cat will be inside it and I won't have realised!

I’m reminded of the day I took three black plastic bags of old clothes to our local tip, the man at in charge said that I must empty the bags in the relavent skip and put the plastic bags in another... you can probably guess the rest! Grey Cat (as she is named) appeared flustered but unscathed... thankfully. If I’d taken the clothes where I usually take them which is to the city EMMAUS we probably would have lost her.

Cats are a race apart....

I’m glad of your happy ending though... but what was the noise?
