a short time ago in a house not so far away from here…

“Well. It’s about fucking time. Where have you been?”

“I have been to the Stupid Friends Guild – remember them? They used to take care of you-”

“Whatever. Don’t let it happen again. I want my dinner on the table promptly at-wait, what the fuck is that?”

“This, is a cat carrier.”

“Cat carrier?” *eyes narrow*

“That’s right.  A cat carrier.  And right now, it is carrying your new best friend!  Shadow, I’d like you to meet: Dakota!” *sets cat carrier down, opens door – a cat easily twice the size of Shadow waddles out, hair cut to look like a lions mane and paws*

Dakota: “Hello!  So. This is my new kingdom, eh?  No sun-rock to lounge on?  Ah well, I’ll make do I suppose.”

Shadow: *eyes wide, jaw on the floor*

Dakota: “And who might you be?”

Shadow: *screams* *runs to the stairs, turns around*


Shadow: *screams – races up to the landing, looks through the rails*

Dakota: *laughs* “Skittish little thing, aren’t you?”

Shadow: *screams – runs and hides*

“Oh boy. This isn’t going exactly the way I’d planned…”

      Oh, it gets worse. There will be more following this one and detailing the daily struggle for dominance that has been ongoing for weeks now.

      Example: This morning, 5 am, 2 cats, 1 hallway – battle royale…
