Scaredy Cat

Tonight the fire alarm went off around nine in my apartment building. The cats have been through fire alarms before, and it always freaks them out. They immediately disappeared when it started, and not seeing or smelling anything, decidedly to leave them when I went outside.

For once, this fire alarm was legit, though it thankfully didn't do any damage to anything I care about. It looks like one of the garage doors died in a blaze of glory. Or at least we found it open, hanging strangely, and the sprinklers on full blast. It was like it was raining indoors.

The fire department couldn't seem to get the sprinklers turned off, and it wasn't until one of the maintenance people showed up that they made any progress towards letting us back in the building.

When I came back inside, Felix came running right away. She must have been worried about me, because she even let me hold her for a while, and she never does that.

Winston on the other hand, hid under the bed for a long time. And now he's trying to stir up the courage to leave the bedroom doorway. For all his beefiness and fangs and tackling Felix, he really is a big wuss.

They're both getting lots of treats and catnip tonight!
