Nothing like a screaming cat....

OK, don't be freaked out by the title of this post! ; ) But I thought I would share about the scary and Erie moment I experienced this afternoon.
I had finished school early and was going to run, so I got my ipod and headed out the door. I would run/walk few laps then, come inside occasionally to get water. Well, I was out there, walking and listening to "Caledonia" on my ipod, when all of the sudden, I heard a cat start screaming and a man yelling, I yanked my ear phones off, and listened in horror at the sound of the cat screaming, I looked over at my little brother, who stood wide eyed, probably thinking the same thing that I was thinking, and that was, that our cat had been crossing the road and someone had hit her. As soon as the screaming stopped, I ran into the house followed by Titus, and ran to the front window were I could see the road. I didn't see anything, so I ran into the kitchen where mama was making cookies, and crying and trying to tell her what was going on, we went outside to the road, thankfully we didn't see any sign of our cat, so Mama, told me to call her, and look around for her, so I did, but seeing nothing, and remembering the Erie sound, decided to go inside and take a shower. After a few hours had past, my brother finally saw our cat, and she was unharmed. Praise the Lord! You never really realize how much you love something, until you think that it may be dead (I know that sounded a little naive)
I still don't know what it was, all I know is that I don't like the sound of a "screaming cat". = )

Oh!! That is so sad! I am glad she is alright. But it makes me think, because we have 2 cats, and I love them so much, and I feel sorry for you because I can't imagine that happening to our cats! haha... Lydia, I had a dream last night that I went to your house, and Carrington was there too, and it was so fun!! But it seemed like we had been best friends our whole entire life... haha! :D

Well, I meant that it seemed that way in my dream. :D ( that we had been friends for along time) I don't blame you for not understanding, it was probably really confusing. I wonder how long we have known each other though, do you know?

Well Abigail and I started writing letters when I was 11 and she was 12. So 3 1/2 years to 4. So for you two, probably just a little less than that. :D
