I have no idea what it was that made me think something was wrong. A seventh sense, a smell, something anyway. I lifted my head alert now to the feeling of the home and immediately could sense something drastically wrong. Someone or something was eating and it was MY food. I leapt off the sleeping place and cautiously made my way down the passage to where my dishes lay. The smell was stronger. My food but something else as well, a damp fur smell. I turned the corner into the food room and there it was, a Superior kitten, a LARGE, Superior kitten and a stranger. He sensed me and hissed turning towards me as he did. There was no other way out except through me and I hissed back. We both chose the same moment to jump. My food and water went everywhere as we collided and landed on the dishes, my strength and weight giving the bigger push. But we fought claw to claw until he was towards the way out and I was on the inside.
He ran. He was fast and was out of the clearway very quickly. I hissed and called after him loudly. I did not follow as I had won enough of a victory . My 'The Him' came flying towards me to see what was wrong and miracle upon miracle my 'The Her' woke up. They both looked around and discovered the overturned dishes. My 'The Her' set to cleaning up the mess and putting fresh food in my dish. I followed my 'The Him' as he checked the other rooms. He must have been checking to see if the invader was still there and as he made the light time in their food room I tried to tell him how heroic I was saving the property and chasing the invader off. I'm not sure if he understood or just thought I was hungry but moments later he presented me with a dish of fresh chicken. I thanked him by rubbing my body on his legs. Now I had food in both places.
'The Her' closed the clearway so nothing else could get in and I could not get out to find the thief. I had no choice but to settle down at her side again and sleep. After all, if I do need to go out I need only wake my 'The Him' and that's fun.
I shall have to find out who the invader was though in the next light time and see why he entered my home without invitation and stole my food. Maybe Ginger will know.
