Default I was being watched

I always jump just a little when I see an animal (pet or wild) while passing my flashlight beam along the top of the foundation. I am concentrating on water infiltration, insulation or rot and the "eyes" get me every time. This guy was calm and just watching...had to get his picture though.

Looked over to my left in the crawlspace this morning. Two glowing eyes were watching me. Little kitty gave me a bit of a startle until I realized what was down there with me.

One time in the past... I heard a rattle rattle. I did not pet it, I left the crawlspace without incident.

Yay
