Excerpts from a Cat's Diary
Day 59 - My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I'm 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 one of their house plants.
Day 62 - Today, my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their legs 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. Didn't work.... must try this on their bed.
Day 69 - Slept all day so that I could annoy my captors with sleep depriving, incessant pleas for food at ungodly hours of the night. Results were mediocre.
Day 81 - Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body in an attempt to make them aware of what I'm capable of and to try to strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little kitty I was......Hmmm, not working according to plan.
Day 88 - 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, foaming, chemical called shampoo. What sick minds could invent such a liquid? My only consolation is the piece of thumb still stuck between my teeth.
Day 90 - There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary confinement 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.
Day 98 - I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and may be 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 language 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.....
