The Scary Thing Under The Bed!!

She saw it! Fran Reynolds was in that intermediate stage between sleep and consciousness but she beheld it entering the room and what a terrifying experience it was! All had been quite, the time--around three a.m. The nightlight in the hall allowed her to see the clear silhouette of this night time invader.
No it wasn't human and it surely didn't belong to this home!  What a strange looking creature it was, a relatively small body making it's way across the floor---but it's head incredibly big---the like she'd never seen before. The whole thing lasted mere seconds, fast and quick not enough time to even focus on the shadowy creature! 
It darted under her bed...and then her beloved cat CHELO let out a shriek. Poor, Chelo! This thing, this unknown creature of the night...was attacking her. How horribly unfair can you get!
Fran let out a scream, calling out frantically to her husband Bill laying sound asleep.
"Bill! Bill! Bill! There's something....something.....something under the bed! It doesn't... doesn't..... belong here!!!! What is it!!! Something, something, something!" Fran pushed out of her terrified soul, barely able to speak.
Chills ran down both of their spines as Bill jumped out of the bed functioning on pure adrenaline. Flicking on the light Fran pulled back the covers from off the bed and they cautiously peaked underneath feeling great trepidation of what they might find. Their fear gave in to anger as soon as the light fell upon the culprit.
No, there was not two creatures under the bed...only one...only one. It was their beloved cat CHELO.
"Chelo!!!" they exclaimed.
Apparently she'd got her head stuck in a super big grocery bag and had began to panic running around the house. The creature with the huge head lunging under the bed was none other then her!
Chelo gave a look at Fran, the type of look which seemed to say, "Sorry Mom. I got my head stuck in this thing in the middle of the night and didn't know what to do!" The mystery of "The-Unknown-Scary-Creature-In-The-Middle-Of-The-Night"...SOLVED.
Special Note:  This is a true story!  The names have been changed to protect the innocent.  I'll say one thing though the picture of the grey cat under the bed sure looks a lot like our grey cat Zola! ;)
