Last week, David was heading to bed at around 11 p.m. when he was alerted to what he thought might be an intruder. Lacy had already retired to sleep, so it wasn't out of the question to think some uninvited guest had snuck inside unnoticed.
David's heart began to race.
"The room was dark and I was frightened because I heard this strange, loud slurping sound coming from where Lacy's dish is," David told The Dodo. "All I could see was this strange dark mass hovering near her water dish and had no idea what it could be."
Lacy's white fur stands out even in an unlit room, so this obviously wasn't her. Was it a raccoon? A skunk? David held his breath and flipped on the light.
