Subtle Terrors

You felt it
didn’t you?
That moment
hair on back of neck
straight
shiver
down spine
glance around
all alone
own house
where is this fear
where is this sense of terror
breath stopping
heart pounding
waiting
knowing
something is there
reaching out
skeletal
cold
fingers
scream
laugh
onto lap cat jumps
leaving self shaking
no sense of fear
of worry
eyes back to t.v.
movie still playing.
Notice not
staring off
corner
grumbles of discontent
hiss
growling
hush
settle down
never know
kitty can see
what you cannot
salivating in the corner.

And than there was One

Today was the day.
My friend came and picked up two of the kittens. Blackie and Itty Bitty.
I cried. I am not going to lie. I love animals and wish that I could keep them all. However not able to do so.
Loki will be remaining with us. Thomas keeps trying to bite him or rather dominate him and Loki is having none of that. Thomas keeps trying to bite his throat to get him to submit and Loki keeps fighting him off. And Thomas is so fat the fact that he is being defeated by such a little guy is kind of funny.
I know the other two are going to a great home. I will get pictures and updates.
But my heart hurt a little when I said goodbye.
