What’s lurking out there in the night?
Something was lurking around outside my cottage yesterday evening, something that neither Sune nor the cats liked. I had opened the door so Sune could go out to do his business. He stopped for a second and sniffed in the air, ran towards the gate and started barking like crazy. He didn’t want to stay but still this was so interesting that he didn’t want to get in either.
I opened the door for my cats shortly after that so they could go out and do what ever cats do in the night. Bertil refused to get out at all but Teodor stepped out on the stairs, just to stop and sniff in the air. It didn’t take ten seconds before he jumped right back indoors again🙂
I think an hour had passed when I opened the door for Sune again but the same thing happened again. He really didn’t like what ever was out there. It wasn’t until just before we went to bed that he finally couldn’t feel any smell from the thing he didn’t like and finally my cats also went outside. I do wonder what it was.
I know we have a wolf couple in this region but I haven’t heard that they are close to here. It could be the lynx that followed the deers, because I don’t think a single deer was here all night after that. My dogs like foxes and badgers aren’t something they fear either. But then I came to think about wild hogs. They have never been even close to my cottage before but they walk on the bog and the bog starts behind my garage. But do cats fear wild hogs? I have no idea.
The deers came early today and i hope they eat what is left from last night too even if it is rather wet this evening. They really must because they were rather many at the same time here just minutes ago🙂 The fire is burning in the stove and since it is rather warm outside I don’t think I’ll have to keep it alive for very long tonight.
