Before I go on with my story, I would like to give a brief background first about myself.
I am not working in a call center but since I am working in an American company, it requires me to work on a shifting schedule because our operation is 24/7. We support supermarkets in the US, Canada and Australia and some parts of Europe and Asia. For 2 months, I am on night shift, sleeping in the morning. And this week is my last since next week, we will transition to a new shift.
Now with my story, it happened just this morning (Nov 29,'17). I came home at 9AM. Since I was very sleepy, I just ate a little then went straight to bed after changing my clothes. Mama and my younger sister went out to the market to buy ingredients for our lunch. I was alone with my younger brother who has cerebral palsy. He was lying on the sofa bed in the living room, taking his nap. I was in my bedroom. Now, we have a pet dog, a shiat tzu breed. She barks sweetly. It is as if no one will be scared when she barks and growls. She is very sweet.
I was already dozing off when I heard Winky (name of our dog) barking and growling. And it is different from her natural barking sound. I thought that she just saw a rat and she will stop eventually. But, when I noticed that she was barking and growling for more than 5 minutes already, I get up and decided to see what makes her do that.
I saw that she was looking towards the kitchen (lights are off in the kitchen and living room). She was barking at something I do not know. And when she growled, still looking at the kitchen, I got a bit scared because maybe she is seeing something, you know, that I cannot see. I went back to the bedroom, under the blanket and closed my eyes tightly. After a few minutes, Winky stopped growling. That's when I got my sleep.
So, what do you think? Is there really a reason to be scared of? Or do you think it's really just a rat?
