It’s been a scary few days.
The first night after we (allegedly) peed on the couch, some new stuff showed up on the couch. When Betsy and I went to hop up there, it stuck to our feet! Oh it was terrible, it just wouldn’t come off, even if you licked it! And what’s worse is that it made a loud rustling noise as you moved (because it was stuck to your foot). It must’ve been loud, because it woke mom and dad up, and they came out and grabbed us and took it off our feet – which hurt a little, because it pulled on our fur.
I tell you what, I don’t want a repeat of that, so I think I’m going to steer clear of the couch for a while.
The next day, this big scary man came with these big scary smelly tubes and it sounded sort of like the vacuum, but it wasn’t. And he was doing something to the couch, and it smelled different – I just stayed hidden in my corner. Eventually the scary stuff went away, though.
Then, that night, everything went dark all of a sudden, but mom and dad were still home – and it was too early for them to go to sleep like they usually do (we hadn’t even had dinner yet!). Dad said something about the “power” being out because of the wind. Betsy and I didn’t like it, though, so we huddled together (of course I was just doing it to keep Betsy company) in dad’s office. At first, the lights kept flashing on and off and there was this loud beep every time (dad apologized and said it was the “smoke alarm” or something). But eventually the lights just went out for good and it was very dark, except for these light sticks mom and dad kept carrying around and shining everywhere. Eventually, though, dad and mom stopped moving around with their light sticks and settled down, and then it wasn’t so bad. We even had a nice dinner (mmm… fresh lettuce). Then, later on, the lights came back on all of a sudden – and stayed on! So everything was back to normal.
On a good note, Betsy and I did manage to sneak into the bedroom this morning! But the closet was closed, so we couldn’t go play in mom’s shoe forest… but it was still nice, until mom chased us out!
I don’t know if all this scary stuff happened just because of what we (allegedly) did on the couch, but I’m not keen to repeat the experience, so I think Betsy and I will be staying on the floor from now on, thank you very much!
