The day began as a normal day. I started with my morning rounds, making sure all was in place, nothing out of the ordinary. Then it hit me, my nose caught the scent...a Lizard! Where exactly was this reptilian creature? Instantly, my Feline ears targeted the hiding spot, he was hiding behind some boxes. The Hunt was on!
As awesome as I am, I am unable to move boxes, so I waited and I waited and finally...BAM...I got him! Oh, this was a mighty Lizard, the battle ensued until he finally could fight no more. Now, being the generous fellow that I am, I felt the need to share this amazing Trophy and present it as a Gift to my Human Companion. I scooped the lifeless creature into my mouth, proudly paraded through the shop and presented my Gift directly onto my Human Companions foot.
What happened next is a blur, it all happened so very fast. My Human Companion did not react exactly as I had expected...the blood curdling screams were enough to make my fur stand on end. And then it flew by in a flash, my Gift flying through the air at top speed as my Human Companion kicked it with all her might! My Trophy hit the wall and I hit the deck! It was quiet, too quiet. I slowly crept from under my bed, my Human Companion still in shock, I quickly sought out my Trophy. There it was, laying there on its back, all 4 legs in the air. I ran stealth-like claiming my Trophy.
After pulling herself together, my Human Companion began searching out my Lizard, so she said "could be properly disposed of." Nobody was touching my Trophy, so I did what any normal hunter would do, I sat on it. This seemed like a perfect plan, until she scooted me out of the way in a panic trying to find the Lizard. It was gone! My Lizard was gone! Where could it be? I looked frantically side to side, but it was nowhere to be found. Then I heard the screams again, I look at the crazy Human and she's looking directly at me pointing & screaming! What? What? And then I felt the grip on my neck. This tiny little dinosaur is alive, and it's clinging to my neck with a mighty bite! I try desperately to swat the beast from my throat, but it won't loosen its grip. I dive to the floor, and begin rolling fiercely from side to side and simultaneously batting at the beast, but it won't give! I don't know how much longer I can go on, I'm a lap cat for goodness sakes, I'm not used to such activity! Finally!!! The Beast loosens its grip and with one final dive-roll I'm Free!
Before I could catch my breath, my Human Companion scooped up the lifeless Lizard and tossed it outside into a plant. Nooooooooooo! How could she? My Prize, gone forever! Well, my Trophy might be forever gone, but the story will forever be told to all who enter The Doggie Bag. So, when you enter my domain please don't ignore my mews, there is a monumental tale to be told, and I am the only one who can tell it.
'Till next time,
