The fire alarm in my house kept going off for no apparent reason the other night (that’s not the part that amused me). This happened once before, on President’s Day when I was home from work, and this time, like that time, it turned out to be nothing. But also like last time, my landlords had to call the fire department. So while Chris and our upstairs neighbor Heather and I were waiting outside, we saw this woman stroll through the backyard with…a cat on a leash.
I can’t decide what the weirdest part is:
-She walks her cat on a leash
-She walks her cat on a leash through other people’s backyards
-She walks her cat on a leash through other people’s backyards in the middle of the night
-She said to us, as if there was nothing weird about it, “Hi! I’m just walking my cat.”
Of course, I have never had a cat, so maybe I’m the one out of the loop and it’s perfectly normal to waltz through other people’s backyards at night with a feline on a leash. Let me know if it is, okay?
