"Mr. Rhett, What is it?"
"The problem with cats is that they get the exact same look on their faces whether they see a moth or an ax-murderer." ~ Paula PoundstoneThere are times when a cat sits and stares, not really focusing on you but seems to be looking "through" you. Does this make you uncomfortable? Do the little hairs on the back of your neck stand up? Do you feel a draft of air in your hair at these times?
"What are you staring at, Miss Scarlett?"
Sometimes the stares are associated with that slight, quick move of the head, snapping to attention; but the focus is four feet behind you. Do you ever feel the creeping tingle on your arm or scalp, like an insect lighting on your head at these times?
"Hey, Nick, whatcha lookin' at? Nicky?"
Do you start to hear the "Jaws" theme music pounding in your head; or feel the touch of a cold, clammy hand on the back of your neck? Do you have visions of "Jason" and his white hockey mask or "Freddy" and his long sharp knives? Do you feel the wheels of Friday's Ark rolling down the track towards the deep ocean? Can you hear the crazy clown at the Carnival of the Cats and the music from the carnival tents at Furry Paws? (Turning slowly) What? OH NO!!!!
(Made you look, didn't I?)
