Around two in the morning, Christina Bingman heard her dog, Alexa, barking and jumped out of bed to investigate.

“It was the ‘something’s out there’ bark,” Bingman told The Dodo.


Bingman immediately went outside to check on the family’s poultry, but after carefully scanning the entire yard, she found nothing unusual. Though she had no understanding why Alexa was so agitated, she went back to bed because everything appeared to be fine. Alexa’s nighttime barking woke her mother up several times until she finally got up for the day several hours later.

It wasn’t until one of her children woke up that Bingman was able to solve the mystery of what Alexa was barking at.

“I discovered that she was actually barking at the bag of cat food once the family had woken up for the day,” Bingman said. “My youngest told me to look at the window and laughed at how real the cat on the bag looked, and how giant it was. Then it clicked for me what Alexa had been trying to tell me. There was a giant cat staring in the window at her all night.”

The cat food bag usually doesn’t reside outside, but because the container it usually lives in was damaged and Bingman didn’t want any of her pets to get into it, she left it on a table outside the window. Alexa evidently did not like the fact that the bag against the window gives the impression that there is a huge cat outside.




“I immediately started to laugh,” Bingman said.

Alexa had only ever been attempting to protect her family from the enormous cat, so she was perplexed as to why no one would pay attention to her. Fortunately, the riddle has been solved, allowing Alexa to unwind and her mother to finally have a decent night’s rest once more.
