Traditionally Halloween is a one-day observance. Not at our house. Trick or treat is an every day routine.
Anyone who shares their home with a cat or two will understand. Without daily cat treats there will be tricks — tricks that in the middle of the night border on the paranormal.
What is normal for cats, at least, is the occasional nocturnal disturbance. Most are easily explained. Things that go bump in the night, in other words, generally have four legs and a tail.
In our house I am the designated “ghost buster,” or should I say, “cat buster.” I’m the one elected to investigate those bumps, yowls, and screeches that interrupt a good night’s sleep. Thursday, October 24, 2013
