A few weeks ago, a fierce thunderstorm hit in the middle of the night. Lightning struck so close that it shook the house and woke me from a sound sleep. Violet didn't stir.
Linda runs the vacuum, our cats chase each other and knock things over, the TV blares, music plays, and Violet sleeps through them all.
So why then does she wake from a sound sleep at a mere whisper when Linda and I are trying to have some "alone" time?
