Because I fear I'm going to be a bit of a grouch today. It's 4 am and I've been awake for 3 hours.
It started with the usual noises (snoring). Then the heater. I've complained about its tinking noise before. So I retreated upstairs. Then I heard a scratching clawing type noise. I thought it was the cats but when I went in the hall it seemed to be coming from overhead. Oh joys, do we have critters in the attic? Or was it just something on the roof. It seems to have stopped now but I am still awake and twitchy. Grrrrrr.
If I can fall asleep now I might get 2 hours before a cat wakes me for breakfast.
I wonder how Oscar sleeps in his trash can?
Update. I think the critter was scratching on a metal vent on the roof. Kind Frank ventured up on the roof and could find no sign of entry.
