So before I start, I want you to read the title to this post in the tune of the video below:


Got it? Good. Let’s begin.

Have you ever had a crazy experience that you didn’t realize was crazy until afterwards? I recently had one that involved a cat and a gentleman in a car.

I hopped out of my car, grabbed my purse and headed for the stairs leading to my apartment. As I walked to the top of the stairs, a car that was driving by slowed. The guy driving rolled down his window.

“Hello, how are you?” he asked smiling.

I turned around.

“I’m doing well,” I said.

Suddenly, I heard a loud meowing sound. I looked around to see where the cat was but I didn’t see it.

“You look nice,” said the guy in the car.

I turned to look at him.

“Thank you,” I said.

“So, would you give me your number?” he asked.

“MEEE-YOOOWWW!”

I turned to look for the cat and saw a gray and white striped cat standing to the left of the stairs. I looked at the cat trying to figure out why it was meowing so loudly. We made eye contact.

“MEEEEE-YOOOOWWWW!”

It felt like the cat was talking to me trying to convey an important message that needed to be yelled. I turned back to the guy in the car.

“No, I can’t,” I said. “I’m seeing somebody.”

“MEEEEEEE-YOOOOOOWWWWW!”

I ended the statement with a smile and turned to walk down the stairs. The cat followed me continuing to meow. I walked down the first flight of steps and turned to look back. The cat ran away. I turned and continued my walk down the stairs and to my apartment.

As I closed and locked my door, I chuckled to myself. The whole exchange was kind of funny. But then I stopped and thought, “What if the cat was looking out for my best interests?” “What if the cat knew something about that guy that I didn’t?”

Sometimes random animals know best. Well, when they’re not trying to maul you, that is.
