Last night was interesting and confusing. So, I live in the shed out the back, there is insulated walls. The other day I can hear scattering/noises behind the walls, I'm thinking great, I have mice but we haven't seen any in a long time around here and my room is really clean. Anyway, I go to bed. I get woken up because Sunny is growling and this is not like him at all. I turn the light on because I was worried him and Serenity were about to fight but Uh, Serenity is no where in sight near Sunny, she's fast asleep under the futon. Unless she quickly scurried away but I know my dog and I am pretty **** sure she would have reacted to Sunny growling at her. (So, I'm confused why he growled but whatever) Since he's been odd at times, I decide to get up to see if anything may be making him growl. I shine my phone light next to him and I.. Ewww.. See this dead thing, I seriously have no idea what it was. It was grey and it was big and it was dead. To big to be a mouse, could be a rat but we've never seen one around here.. It looked bigger/furrier then a ray though.. Maybe it was a different animal? I don't know. I have a phobia of dead things and I just didn't have the will power to look at that poor animal last night. I didn't know what to do.. I couldn't touch it (bad phobia of dead things).. I had other options but I was tired and so grossed out. I went back to bed but it took me a little bit to fall asleep because I kept imaging Sunny jumping on my bed with this thing. I am so happy though that I kicked both dogs off the bed at night (I love them sleeping in the bed but I'm over the dirt they leave behind). He would have eaten that thing in my bed and I would have freaked out. So glad he knew the rules and stayed on the futon. I still wonder what the hell went on. I mean, how did I not wake up to him going after this thing? Or was he lucky and grabbed it in one quick movement? Why didn't Serenity go after it/fight him for it? (then again, she's been weird with food) or did she? These are one of those things you just don't expect to happen. So many questions! My only concern was Serenity and Sunny fighting but I would've woken up to that. I had planned to dispose of it in the morning but he ate it. I honestly didn't even consider the fact he was going to eat it. Well, he got a full raw meal! And I think there's more in my wall because I heard them when I woke up. I hate having a phobia of dead things. It took me so long to even be able to touch raw meat. Anything 'interesting' ever happen to some one here that they didn't expect?
