(Please suspend any dislike of me allowing my cat outdoors until the end of the story)
A few nights ago, Delilah and I went outside; Delilah to do her business and me to enjoy the cool breeze and fresh air.
I could hear rustling in the grassy area across the parking lot from our apartment. After my eyes adjusted, I could see the movement in the leaves. I walked up closer to see what was making the noises and saw it was an armadillo. Man, he was ferociously hunting through the leaves and grass for bugs.
I watched him for a while and he never even acknowledged my presence or looked up at me. He was a man on a mission.
I heard a noise behind me and found it was Delilah, back at the apartment, calling me to come home. I guess I needed to pay attention to her, so I politely took her picture from across the parking lot.
When I saw the picture preview on the camera, I was not sure I wanted to head home with spooky kitty eyes glowing at me. Lucky for me the real-life version of this picture was just a sweet cat who wanted to go back inside and get some food.
