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.


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.


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.”


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.
