Things that go Meow in the Night
In my younger days myself and my friends used to experiment with soft drugs - weed to be precise. One of the joys of these times was long card playing sessions at one of our friends houses whose parents are ex-hippies who would allow us to do as we pleased in their home, as long as we cleaned up after ourselves. After a long evening of 'the bong olympics' and numerous rounds top trumps all but myself and one friend has gone upstairs and passed out - leaving us to clean up. We were very responsible for potheads and cleaned every surface, binned all the rubbish (even seperating the recycleables) and mopped the floor - leaving the kitchen/consewrvatory cleaner than we had found it. As had become tradition we had one final spliff in the back garden to reward us for our hard work before we would turn in for the night. It was then that it happened.. an event we still talk of today and caanot explain. The only way either of us can describe it is.. in the middle of the night a tree full of cats fell down - with only us to hear it. We were sat on sun loungers at about 3:30am, stoned but compus mentus when the almighty sound of a large tree collapsing in the distance behind us halted our conversation on the infinity of the universe above us, to be followed by sustained cat/kitten yowling, meowing, neigh - crying, somewhere in the darkness behind us for a good ten minutes.
Do cats grow on trees? Well, in Lancashire anything is possible. Or do cats worship trees in midnight masses and were mourning the loss of one of their idols (it would explain where they go at night), perhaps we will never know. But I for one will never forget the night that a tree full of cats fell down, and scared the living shit out me.

I like this idea!
Having sat in the back garden early one summer day, watching the cats behaving totally differently from how they behaved indoors
