so last night i laid awake in my bed, tossing and turning.i wasn't sure why i was having a hard time falling asleep. then after i'd been laying there for about 45 minutes, i heard a clinging noise. it sounded like silverware on a dish. it freaked me out to no end because i knew there was a bowl on the floor i had just eaten from with a spoon in it. and i didn't know what was causing the noise. i summoned up all the bravery i have and sat up and peeked over and to my complete shock i saw my cat licking out the rest of the bowl. okay i know that doesn't sound like anything, but i had NO idea she was in the room. she had been hiding out under the bed not making a sound. also keep this in mind, i share my room with my 5 month old.. not only that, but everytime i allow the cat in the room under my supervision, she jumps in the crib. i used to check under the bed before we went to sleep everynight, but i never saw a cat under there so i stopped checking
i didn't quite realize the gravity of what just happened until i scooped her up and put her out. but then it sunk in. if i hadn't have been tossing and turning when i normally fall asleep quickly, she would have gotten out from under the bed and jumped in that crib like she always does; possibly trying to snuggle with my daughter because my cat is a big snuggler.
