Last night (well early morning, around 1 am) was weird, I let Jaya out, and about 20 minutes later, I opened the door to let her in. She was near the porch when I opened the door, which is unusual, usually she's clear across the yard. But, she trotted away before I could step out onto the porch.
Straight ahead of me, probably the length of about 2 football fields and up on a foothill, was a huge fire. I called 911 and they said someone reported it about 5 minutes before I did and they thought the hockey rink was on fire. I told the dispatcher 'No, it's much farther north than that, even north of the dog shelter which is about 4 blocks north of the hockey ring.
He relayed that info the the firetrucks who were already headed up to that area, They couldn't have missed the fire though once they got up on that 'bar' and saw the flames. It burned high and hot from 1 am to 3 am, when I finally went to bed. And the sound of the fire could be heard from my back porch.
Strangely enough, while Jaya was aware of the fire, she wasn't freaking out too much, and she took her good sweet time in coming in like she's been doing since HaHa's death. So the fire and the crackling, hissing sounds it made didn't terrify her.
I wish I could get a night time cam to monitor my back yard and just see what travels through it during the night. I might then be able to pinpoint what has Jaya so afraid of that she's coming into the house at a full run.
