In the morning we found socks outside our bedroom doors, where none of us had left socks.
We quickly pieced together what had happened. The Evil Sock Creatures had been creeping up to harm us in our sleep, but were thwarted by a vigilant patrol cat.
Patrol cat had left the bodies behind. After all, she needed to race off to try to save her companion cat from the Grocery Bag Monster that was starting to devour him.
It isn't easy patrolling the household, but she is ever vigilant.
