Becker is afraid of strange things

So, in the summer, Jess and I go swimming when we can. (We haven't been in awhile, because I've been sick and there was much editing to be done.) When dry and not in use, I fold up our pool towels and leave them on my bathroom counter, with our bathing suits folded up underneath. They've been there for, oh, two weeks or so, so this is not something new. Sometimes Azzy will even sleep on them.

Last night, Becker decided he was MORTALLY AFRAID of them.

Becker had some other mortal fears, like the vacuum (okay, that one I can understand) and brooms (that one I can't - it doesn't make any weird noises, cat!) and the swiffer and, for some reason, balloons. I can't figure out WHAT is scaring him about the towels/bathing suits pile, though. I picked up both the bathing suits and held them out to him, and he was fine with that. Then I held the towels out to him, and he was fine too. But if I tried to put him down ON the pile, he would FLIP THE FUCK OUT and go tearing away to hide in my room and shake like I had just tried to feed him to a meat grinder or something.

WTF, cat? Seriously, WTF?
