The Rat Freak Out

Well, you know that in our lovely new high-rise, there are no rats yet.  At least not that I knew of.
.
But the other night, Eddie was snoring so I went into the second bedroom.  I am just about to fall asleep in there, and I here the scritch of a mouse.  At least I hope it is a mouse, not a rat.
.
I can see a lot (the window shade is open and the light of the city is coming in) but I don't see it.  So I lean to get a better look.  My bed creaks, and the mouse scritches faster and then stops.
.
Oh my, a Mexican standoff.
.
So I look some more, I don't see anything, but I hear the mouse rattling around near the far wall.
.
And then I remember, I have a terrier.  Terrier are raters for goodness sake.  I saw Hastings kill a rat the size of a football in zero seconds flat, I know Trevor can take this mouse.
.
So I creep out of bed and walk slowly to the door.  I can hear the mouse somewhere, trying to skootch away.  I am going to open the door and get Trevor...
.
I open the door and tip toe out towards the other room, when Tervor and I run into each other.  I made an interjection that didn't all seem like a girly scream, and Trevor barked in a way that did not at all resemble a freaked out pup.  And we realized that we had been stalking each other on opposite sides of the wall.
.
We adjourned to our separate beds and felt both silly and relieved.

Classic. Thanks for the chuckle. I needed it after one heckuva weekend and an intense Monday.

Very funny. I did indeed LOL...and I'm not just using the common internet vernacular to seem supportive. I actually almost peed a little --svh

So glad it wasn't a rat, even though. Trevor for sure could have taken it. I remember also waking in that bedroom to Trevor scratches but not realizing forever that he was in the room and wanting out!
