I was interrupted in painting today by the cat screams (yes the kinds you hear in the movies) of two cats who appeared to be in a terrible disagreement. They were the classic cat screams that you hear all the times in the movies and cartoons when the cats are being attacked by the dogs. It was loud enough that we stopped painting and opened the doors to see what was going on. They eventually chased each other down the hill and their terrifying screams faded away in the distance.
Oh, but that is not all. The other day we were walking down the hill to go to dinner and we see these two cats starring at each other, but this cannot be described as a minor stare, it was more like they were burning holes into each others eyes. They were making the most horrible noises, noises I never knew a cat could ever make. Nothing could interrupt them or even make them flinch. We were making barking noises and they didn't even move. They were literally there for about 7 minutes before we got tired of being freaked out by them and left for dinner. Yeah. Cats in Italy are freaky. Like, really weird.
