In the middle of the night I was dreaming. In the dream I suddenly heard screeching and wailing. I awoke in the dark listening. Had the sound been in my dream or in real life. It had sounded like a cat fight. I lay there in the dark listening. I didn’t hear anymore sounds. And then I heard a cat meowing loudly. I don’t know if that was the winner or the loser.

Next morning I went outside looking to see if I could find any aftermath of the fight. A neighborhood cat was nearby and slinked into the woods. He seemed fine.
