You got it. Or it got you –

You don't know how the cat got on your shoulder. But it's there. It bends its head and whispers something in your ear: then it leaps off, and is gone before it touches the ground. An hour later, you are still trembling.


Nothing doing.

It's gone. Was it ever there to begin with? Suddenly you're not sure.
