Before I get to the story I wanted to share, I wanted to give an update on my knee. I went to my doctor yesterday and the x-rays were normal. She prescribed me an anti-inflammatory/pain med and gave me a referral slip to a specialist to use only if my knee doesn't improve. It is beginning to hurt more to walk than it did at first, but still isn't too bad. So, now we wait and see.

Last night I was sitting on the couch watching tv and hubby was in the basement hanging some laundry to dry (I hang a lot of my clothes to keep them looking new longer). I kept hearing this strange noise and I thought it was a kid outside. It was nearing midnight and after I heard it a few times, I paused my show to listen more closely. I determined it was a cat and returned to watching my show.

However, the cat didn't stop and I began to worry that it was either stuck somewhere or being attacked. I decided that I was going to grab a flashlight and go take a look at what was going on. I searched around and couldn't find my flashlight, so I decided to use one of the boys'.

I'm sure it was very intimidating to see a grown woman carrying this flashlight (and no, mine isn't one of the recalled ones)....

I'm sure it was especially intimidating when I turned it on and it roared at them!! Haha!!

So, I head out with my nifty flashlight and found 2 cats. They just looked at me like I was crazy as I pointed the light at them. One of them went under a car and the other followed and they began to meow loudly again. I told them to knock it off and I didn't hear them the rest of the night. After coming back in and thinking about it, I came to the conclusion that the awful sound I was hearing was not a cat in pain, but a cat in heat. Why, oh why, does that meow have to sound so bad??
