oh chippy

okay so what the fuck

chippy is sleeping in her usual spot, pillow in the captain’s chair…

sound asleep. been sleeping a half hour.

i don’t know if she was still sleeping, because i am not facing her, when she started meowing. but she started meowing, and immediately i stood up and almost stepped towards the door - because when i hear that meow, it means she’s outside, fighting. when another meow sound behind me reminded me that she was inside, i turned and she was on the pillow, awake now from her own crying, and still crying, and then slowly got quieter and quieter until she stopped. then went back to sleep.

i went over to her and pet her and kissed her and picked her up and held her. i guess she was having a nightmare.
