Sunday night I went to bed and was drifting in and out of sleep when I heard a crunching noise. Now I have a cat door in my bedroom, and I have a cat food dispenser right inside that door, so I assumed it was a cat. But Bits was lying on my chest, ears erect, and Gwacie is a cat food gulper so I suspected another cat.
I pulled out my trusty iPhone, triggered the flashlight app and shone it at the cat food dispenser, only to discover that I had a skunk in my bedroom! yeah. So I did the only thing that made sense. I turned off the flashlight, settled into bed and waited for the crunching to stop. It did. And the dispenser was empty. And the door will be closed when I go to bed from now on.
