Jennifer and Julian’s home situation was very normal, until Jennifer gave birth to a beautiful daughter. Ever since that moment, their family cat Luna shook things up completely. Luna would not let their daughter sleep alone, and when they got separated she would not stop meowing. When Julian realized what was going on he got the shock of his life.
He immediately called the police and they came with every available officer…
When the first police officer arrived he could not believe what he was witnessing. How could a cat have noticed this? He told Julian that he should be very happy with such an observant cat. Deep down Julian knew that he had screwed up, he should have been the one protecting his daughter…
Within minutes at least a dozen more police cars arrived at the scene. They immediately started asking questions to both Julian and Jennifer. The couple was in shock, they had no idea of the gravity of the situation until now.
What the officers came for was disturbing for sure. But the fact that it already started when Jennifer was pregnant was even more alarming. They had trusted the wrong people.
But why did Luna refuse to let their daughter sleep alone? And what did Julian eventually figure out that such a large police pressence was necessary?
It all started when Jennifer was finally pregnant, they both wanted this for a very long time. However, there was something that was bugging both of them, their cat Luna. They were hesitant about her reaction to the baby.
Jennifer had read some horror stories only from cats that would not accept another family member, Jennifer and Julian both hoped that Luna would accept this. Otherwise, they were definitely going to bring Luna to a shelter.
Then one day when Luna finally noticed that Jennifer was pregnant she started meowing at Jennifer’s belly repeatedly. Luna did not seem happy with the pregnancy, she started to act really weird. Jennifer got really scared of this strange behavior.
They could not figure out what was triggering this behavior. Did Luna feel threatened or was there something wrong with the baby that Luna could feel? Jennifer had to get answers, and quick before it would be too late.
Jennifer asked Julian to take Luna to the veterinarian. They had to absolutely make sure that nothing was going on with Luna before they would need to choose between the baby or the cat.
That choice would not be easy, but deep down they knew that if they had to choose they would definitely choose to bring Luna to a shelter if she could not accept the baby, this was to keep their daughter safe at all times. However, the vet could not bring clarity.
He did some medical checks to see if the cat was okay, there was nothing wrong. He told Julian that she must be feeling something that is going on with the baby. He advised Julian to take Jennifer to the hospital for some checkups.
When Julian brought the news to Jennifer she started crying. She felt like everything was wrong, Luna had probably noticed something that was going on with the baby. Jennifer mustered up all of her courage to call her doctor. He told her to come in immediately.
Jennifer called her friend, Eve, who was there for her almost every day, to take her. She had been helping during the pregnancy around the house. She showed up within minutes to help her friend get to the hospital. When arriving there the receptionist told her she could go in.
The doctor did some elaborate medical tests to make sure everything is alright. The ultrasound, as well as the other tests, did not indicate anything that was wrong with Jennifer or the baby. They still did not get the answers they were looking for.
When they arrived home Jennifer broke down, she kept crying. She did not want to choose between her child and the cat. Eve comforted her. Eve told Jennifer that she would be there for them when they couldn’t be home. Eve would become their babysitter, she had plenty of time.
This comforted Jennifer, there would always be someone there to keep an eye on Luna. A couple weeks later, Jennifer finally gave birth to a beautiful girl, Lily. Luna had still acted strange, but this is when more erratic behavior started happening.
In the first few weeks, everything seemed to go fine. Both Jennifer and Julian were home to care for their little girl. Luna seemed to have calmed down. But when they started working, Eve called them with some concerning news.
She told Jennifer that Luna refused to let Lily sleep alone. Luna would not leave her side. Jennifer was totally baffled. When she told Julian he did not think much of it. Luna was just caring for Lily, he thought it was beautiful.
Then one day Eve called in distress, she had separated Luna from Lily and after returning downstairs, she was attacked by Luna. Luna was definitely overprotective, Julian knew that Luna had to be punished for this behavior.
With a heavy heart, he returned to the veterinarian, and the vet gave Julian a choice. He could bring Luna to a shelter or he could figure out why Luna was acting this way because the vet had a feeling something was off.
Julian took offense to a comment that the vet made, he said to Julian that they were probably the problem. Luna did not trust them to let Lily sleep alone. However, Julian knew deep down that there was something else. He could not be the problem, could he?
For a while, they decided to observe Luna together with Lily. Lily seemed to love the cat, and Luna definitely loved Lily, the could not say goodbye to Luna because she was overprotective.
The problem was every time that Julian would bring Lily to bed or Lily fell asleep Luna would be at her side. Julian just accepted the situation, until one day Eve called that she was bitten by Luna. This gave Julian a sudden realization.
Julian realized that Luna had only reacted really strangely when Eve was around. Luna was calm when she was not around. Eve must be the problem! He knew it!
Jennifer told Julian that he must calm down, but she refused to let Julian do anything erratic. Jennifer told Julian that Luna refused to let Lily sleep alone at night as well, so Eve couldn’t be the problem. Could she?
Jennifer came up with a genius idea. She told Julian to install some cameras around the house to keep an eye on Luna and Lily. This would definitely get some more answers. They could even keep an eye on Eve during the day.
Eve seemed to be hesitant about Julian installing cameras in the house. She asked if it was necessary, and what caused this. Julian thought this was very suspicious. He already did not trust her and now she started asking all of these questions.
When Julian reviewed the first few days of footage nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Luna was still very protective. Luna constantly kept an eye on Eve. It really started to look like Luna did not trust her. Julian wanted to confront Eve.
Julian had to do this without Jennifer knowing, they were best friends after all. Julian got himself really mad and yelled at Eve. ”What are you doing to my daughter!”. Eve was totally caught off guard. She assured Julian she had no bad intentions.
Eve fired back at Julian, she was furious. How could she have done anything? That stupid cat behaved like this ever since Jennifer was pregnant, and she was not even around during the night. Then Jennifer came home.
Jennifer got really mad at Julian for confronting Eve like this, she could not believe that he was accusing her best friend of being a threat to Lily. Jennifer gave Julian an ultimatum, either figure it out quickly or get rid of Luna.
Julian realized that very moment that Eve had said something that would give him all of the answers he needed. Luna reacted the same way at night. He had never reviewed the night footage, but now he definitely will.
Julian started up the software, he gasped when he realized that every single night the recordings were wiped off the hard drive. There was definitely something really strange going on here, but what?
He decided to make a separate encrypted backup every day for the night recordings. Julian now knew for sure that he was going to get to the bottom of this. Luna had probably noticed something that he neither he nor Jennifer could sense.
The very next day Julian was eager to watch the footage, his suspicions soon got confirmed when he loaded up the recordings. The footage of the baby’s room was disturbing, he saw something entering through the window.
Julian was in complete shock, he felt his heart pounding in his chest. When he reviewed more of the footage he was even more shocked. He had to quickly call the police before this gets out of control!
Julian explained what he had seen. They told him they would immediately send all available officers to his home. Julian knew he just had discovered something huge, but what warranted such a huge police presence?
Julian called Jennifer to come home, and within minutes he heard sirens outside of his house. The first officers had arrived. Jennifer arrived home as well, she demanded an explanation, when Julian showed her the footage she fell on her knees. Why?
An officer told Jennifer and Julian that they had to be proud of their cat for sensing this. They reviewed the footage and immediately asked Julian more questions about their home situation. He explained their cat’s behavior and reaction to Eve. This triggered the officer.
”Where is she?” he asked. They wanted to ask her questions. He gave them her number but she could not be reached. Where was Eve? They asked for more information, and Jennifer told them everything they wanted to know.
Meanwhile, Luna was upstairs with Lily, when officers entered the room she immediately ran over to the wall and started meowing at it. It looked like Luna wanted to tell the officers something. There was something hidden in the wall.
They used a sledgehammer to destroy the wall. They destroyed the wall without even asking Julian or Jennifer. There was a hidden compartment behind the wall! What was going on here?
Without hesitation, they pulled everything out of there, including a safe. They had to get a safe cracker. In the meantime, other officers were running a background scan on Eve Anderson. What they came up with shocked Jennifer and Julian.
There was no Eve, she was not findable in a database, nor was she ever registered anywhere. This person whoever it was fabricated her whole life. Jennifer broke down, she had known her best friend for over 10 years now, how could this be happening? What was in the safe?
Eventually, a safecracker arrived, and Luna in the meantime kept meowing at the safe. She also kept a close eye on Lily. She smelled something. When the safecracker was finally done they realized the gravity of the situation.
A whole bunch of money, jewelry, documents, and passports were found inside the safe. When opening one of the passports the officers recognized the person. Jennifer screamed, ”Thats Eve”.
They found a hidden stash from Eve. The police captain came to Jennifer, he told them that they were dealing with an international spy named Elizabeth Holmes. She was wanted in seventeen countries for espionage. Jennifer was shocked.
The reason she infiltrated the lives of Jennifer and Julian is that Julian works as the director of the national security company. He has access to the entire national security grid. Elizabeth had probably been hired by a rival company to leak secrets. At night she wiped the footage and tried cracking Julian’s computer.
Luna was the only one that noticed something about Elizabeth, this is why Luna tried her very best to protect Lily from any danger that she could sense. Luna had cracked this case wide open. Officers told Julian that he should be very proud of their cat.
Eventually, they managed to catch Elizabeth trying to leave the country. She had noticed the police presence at the house, and she would not get caught. But when she did she confessed everything. Luna saved the day.
Luna and Lily grew up as best friends. Lily eventually learned the entire story from her parents. She and Luna have been inseparable ever since. Luna never stopped looking out for Lily. Julian and Jennifer tried to be more careful about who they let into their house. If they made a mistake again, at least they had Luna to watch out for them.
