No more missing it's litter tray - thankfully - it was just being very noisy.
When the wind huffs and puffs outside, the monster seems to like hovering around the skylight above the dining table making all sorts of noises as the leaves blow across it. It was unnerving, but just about livable with.
That was until the monster got mad...
I came inside early on Tuesday, hoping to have a nice long afternoon napping in the dry warmth, but my slumber was soon interrupted by some banging on the roof.
I jumped up from my nice comfy bed and cautiously headed towards the dining table. I looked up.
Sure enough, the monster was back!
R had gone out, leaving me and the roof-monster alone!
How could she?!
I spent the next two hours hiding behind a chair, eyes fixed on the ceiling in order to be prepared should the monster poke through.I had to make sure it didn't come down into the apartment and attack me! As I stared up at the skylight, I even saw shadows fall across it from time to time!!*
* R would like to point out it was a couple of guys - hopefully - fixing the roof to prevent any more peeing ceilings...
R said it was all over, but it wasn't...
The following day it returned.
R was out yet again.
I know! How can she be so cruel abandoning me every day in my hours of need!?
This time, the monster took the skylight off and exposed me to the chilly air I had come inside to escape from! I realized to my absolute horror there was not one, but two, monsters! I could hear them talking - sounding pretty human-like to be honest - hoping they weren't discussing how hungry they were...
Plus, being exposed to all the outside elements whilst in your house, where it's supposed to be a shelter from them, was terrifying! (As well as pretty cold.)
Another long afternoon was spent keeping an eye on what was going on.
When R came home I demanded she put the glass back in the skylight, but she did not obey my orders, and it was 4.30pm before I could finally sleep! It wasn't the best sleep however, as I felt I should keep one eye open and one ear switched on just in case the monster decided to return and catch me out.
