about a month ago, i thought i was going crazy. i was hearing noises coming from somewhere but couldn't figure it out. at first i thought it was the cat. i've tried to tell myself it was. what if it wasn't? with winter setting in, i was afraid it was either squirrels, mice or bats [or something like that] which had come to nest on the space atop the roof or between the walls. as suddenly as the noises started, they stopped.
i spend a lot of time at my desk where my computer is located. typing away, i realized i needed a file from my desk. i also thought i heard the return of those noises. not really thinking about it or looking, i pulled the bottom file drawer open to grab the file but ended up grabbing the head of something furry! no, it wasn't a mouse, squirrel or bat. just my little friend who had decided to play "you can't find me anymore" in my desk. talk about heart attacks.
having no clue how he did it, i finally caught him red-pawed and in the act! he was climbing into back of the desk via the shelf next to the drawer and crawling through a small space.
i have to say we both jumped the first time it happened. he was still fast asleep as i grabbed his little fuzzy head. these days, my little filing clerk just lets out a loud "hello, you woke me up!" whenever i open the drawer.
i decided he needs to be filed under "c" for CUTE!
