I heard my window flex. I thought someone just slammed their car door outside.

It felt bigger than that at Lankershim and Hesby! However, the only thing that distinguished it from the horrid, nightmare construction of the behemoth across the street was that it continued longer than a truck dropping its load would have.

Yes, I'm next to Toluca Lake (Tujunga at Camarillo) and my house had what I'd call a "gentle shake." Said to the felines, "there's another earthquake." Had no idea it was so close. Sometimes when it's mild, it just means it's a larger quake but farther away. Is there a fault line near here???

Caroline, the Verdugo Fault is near Toluca Lake. And other fault lines aren't far away. You can see their locations on this California Department of Conservation map: http://www.quake.ca.gov/gmaps/FAM/faultactivitymap.html ... Or Google. There are lots of maps and information online.
