I got frightened for a moment, staring out into the dark hall.
Then I looked down, and there he was looking back up at me menacingly.
Slowly, I backed away from the door, Teh Kitty swept quickly through the room, looking for God knows what, and in another flash he was out and scampering back into the darkness from whence he came, his claws partially sliding, partially tapping along the hardwood floors. A few seconds later I heard tiny thumps added in. He must have been half running, half sliding down the stairs to the bottom floor.
'I want a cool cat like that, just not so scary and ugly' I thought to myself as I climbed back into bed to go to sleep.
