I Almost Love You
Elvira Robinson charged me with full force, she was glaring and
I did what I had to I leaped onto her chest, knocking her
entire body backwards and onto the floor.
That was the last obstacle at the shelter. But just a few
minutes later, I began to hear police sirens converging upon the
I continued walking southbound and slightly east towards
the downtown core. It would be a better place to live in. It’s
easier for a cat to get lost in the crowd.
It’s nice strolling through a clean, quiet residential area
on a moon lit night, with stars engulfing the sky.
Most humans think that cats never glance up at the sky;
that they don’t even notice the sun, moon, stars or other
terrestrial bodies therein. That’s a bit stupid.
After roughly an hour of walking I decided to shift
direction, heading due south. I was now within ‘striking range’
of the downtown core.
But just as I crossed the street a vehicle with high beam

Worse yet, part of my poop and pee had dropped just underneath
the driver’s door. The driver would likely step on my excrement.
Well, I certainly wasn’t going to clean up after myself.
I had more important matters at hand. Besides, there was
likely to be a handsome reward for my capture. I had to continue
I scanned the area, using my eyes, ears and nose to detect
danger. I scented a few dogs in the area but they were likely
getting ready to hit the sack. I also scented a lone squirrel
Squirrels generally don’t pose a threat to cats, unless, as
in my case, the individual notifies the police after seeing me.
As I continued my trek a lone person called out to me.
“PSST, hey there, come here please.”
“Huh, who is that?”
