Yesterday when I was sitting at the computer, preparing for class, I heard a few girls in the hallway scream. I just figured they were getting excited about something or other; but then a couple of girls that were in the teachers room also screamed. I looked to my left and I see this blur of golden fur fly by me and into the closet room at the end of the staff room.
WHAT IN THE WORLD?
Turns out a cat got into the school and was desperately trying to find its way out. It came out of the room, ran behind the computer desk, and jumped onto the filing cabinets on the other side of the room. There are big, regular windows on either side of the staff room. There are also windows above those. The cat was trying to jump to where the top window was -- I guess he thought it was open, but of course there wasn't anything to grab onto and it just fell each time (and knocked off rulers, books, etc.) The cat then proceeded to meow the most horrified meow I have ever heard -- as if it were screaming bloody murder.
One of the teachers opened the bigger window and after a second of getting it's bearings, it jumped...two floors down to the gravel parking lot. I guess they say cats always land on their feet. I am assuming the cat is okay, but I didn't hear about it or see it after that.
So yes, that's my second cat story from this school. Last year there was this cat that would always come into my International Understanding Class and just kinda hang out with us. Cute.
On a totally unrelated note: Why do I get laughed at for eating a whole apple? Is it just some weird Western thing? I don't get it.
