    The car scares is the only one that bugs me, especially when the cat is coming from some place it couldn’t possible have gotten to on its own. Inside a linen closet?! Haha! Most of the rest can be explained as characters panicking and just not thinking clearly as a result, which happens often enough in real life. I’ve found myself going outside the house to investigate strange noises before without even thinking it could be something more dangerous.
