Not your problem

Last night, after we all should have been long asleep, there was a sudden screeching and scrittering right out front, startling the household. While I rushed about making sure we'd not left any of the cats outside.... came a vast odor. Scrabble walked the perimeter inside, checking all the windows and doors for security.
