I don't know what is was. It was long and skinny, and at first I thought it was the new baby daschaund we have, but she was in the garage. To me it looked like a ferret, but I had my glasses off and it was dark. All I know is I screamed bloody murder for my husband to help me, and I grabbed my baby girl and told her to get out of bed. My husband came running and we searched the bed and room and found nothing. My husband thinks I was dreaming. I was dreaming before I felt that thing touch me, and shot up out of my sleep. I am so scared now and I can't go back to bed.
