Excerpts From a Cat's Diary
My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling
objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry
cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the
mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture.
Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant.
Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet
while they were walking almost succeeded, must try this at the top of the
stairs. In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once
again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair...must try this on
Slept all day so that I could annoy my captors with sleep
depriving, incessant pleas for food at ungodly hours of the night.
Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in attempt
to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear into
their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I
was...Hmmm. Not working according to plan.
I am finally aware of how sadistic they are. For no good reason I
was chosen for the water torture. This time however it included a burning
foamy chemical called "shampoo." What sick minds could invent such a liquid?
My only consolation is the piece of thumb still stuck between my teeth.
There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed
in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell
the foul odor of the glass tubes they call "beer." More importantly I
overheard that my confinement was due to MY power of "allergies." Must learn
what this is and how to use it to my advantage.
I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches.
The Dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is
obviously a half-wit. The Bird on the other hand has got to be an informant.
He has mastered their frightful tongue (something akinto mole speak) and
speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his
current placement in the metal room his safety is assured. But I can wait, it
is only a matter of time...
