“Memories, all alone in the moonlight”

16 Nov

I’ve had this bizarre hallucination lately… Maybe it isn’t a hallucination as much as an optical illusion but, it is something I am seeing that is not there (can I get a “BEAUTIFUL MIND” up in here!?).

Either way, I’m seeing cats.

No, I’m not seeing CATS, the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, because I would be much more horrified in that case.

I am seeing actual meow meow fluffy kitties.

And it’s not like I just go into my room and there is a cat on my bed, staring me in the face. Nor do I have an imaginary friend cat that I have named Booger Face that follows me everywhere and that I keep in a bassinet.

What I see are cats, or something that appears to be a cat, that is scampering away out of the corner of my eye. So never a full on cat just the thought of “was that a fucking cat?” and never being sure. If I am home alone and particularly paranoid that day I will see something move and will assume it is a cat scurrying away…even if I am in the shower…no place is safe. It also happens a lot when I take a walk at night. If the anonymous creature is not big enough to be a bear (read “Bear Attack!” from Oct. 18 because I don’t know how to link things yet…) I firmly believe it is a cat.

Maybe it is the Cheshire cat and this is Wonderland, phase 1. If I see a rabbit in a suit I’ll be sure to report back. After I cage that shit and sell it to a zoo.

Or maybe it’s Professor McGonagall from Harry Potter. Next time I see a cat I’ll whisper crucio and see what it does. If I find myself in Azkaban I’ll know the truth but, alas, it will be too late…

Now, why I’m hallucinating, or optical illusion-ing, cats I cannot tell you. I love cats!! I would like to clarify, once agian, I am not referring to the musical! So why I constantly think a cat is following me I can’t tell you.

Either way, it is pretty weird and I have deduced that I either have some brain juice leakage in my doohicky (I believe that is the medical term) or I am simply an insanely anxious person who hallucinates cats all the time. Wait. I guess that’s all it is…though I’m not going to discredit the brain leakage hypothesis at this current juncture.

    You should go and see a doctor, maybe you are developing cataracts.

      Another spam-ish comment, “they” probably thought you were trying to sell me an anti-cataract potion. if so I am all ears! or all eyes…?

    This is weird. Not because you are seeing cats…but because I saw one too! The other night I was standing in the kitchen just after making a cup of tea. The mug was resting on the corner of the worktop and I nearly wet myself when I caught a glimpse of a cat sitting on the kitchen floor. After a blink it had gone, and was simply replaced by the steam coming off the tea.

      That is weird!! I bet it will happen again though, any moment is prime for a cat hallucination! Maybe there is a cat conspiracy going on…I wouldn’t put it past them.
