The other night the boyfriend heard scratching in the kitchen, coming from underneath the house. There is no basement and there's a few boards missing around the bottom where an animal could come in. I thought it may be a mouse since he couldnt tell me how loud it was, just like a man. "I dunno" *shrug* he says. Last night around 3am it woke me up, It was frickin loud!! Just kept scratching til we got up and ran water down the taps. It shut up but I was up almost the whole night after. Sigh. We couldnt check for prints because it snowed all night and the only thing we saw were weird prints, which maybe looked like deer? Looked like something was running and bounding fast past our house, about 4-5 feet between the marks, and the marks looked like four legs all together almost like a horse galloping and taking a stride. ( ) ( ) kinda shape. Anyways, any ideas what it could be? We covered the entrance area in snow so whatever it is, we will likely see the prints tomorrow. Boyfriend is chill about it, I am freaked out for some reason. It's RIGHT UNDER US, what is it! The cat is there in the kitchen right now so I assume it's under there at the moment, cozy and preparing to FIGHT ITS WAY IN TO MY HOUSE!! AAH!
