Storyboard Text

  • Ever since I was a child, I have loved animals. When I married my wife, she got me many of the best kind. Pluto, the blackest of cats, was always my favorite however.
  • Mrow?
  • One night, I came home very drunk and fancied the idea that the cat was avoiding me. I took him and he scratched me! Thereupon, I grasped my pocket-knife and pried out of of the eyes of the beast! Afterwords, I felt much grief, but the cat avoided me like the plague.
  • Another day, I made up my mind to finish what I had previously started. I took ahold of the cat and hung it on a noose in the yard. 
  • I'm so sorry!
  • I love you!
  • The night after, I was rudely awakened by the yell of fire. It was with great difficulty that myself and my wife escaped from the leaping flames. After this, I started drinking. One day at the bar, I found a strange cat that looked like Pluto. I took it home with me, as the barkeeper had never seen it before. It was only after this that I realized this cat, too, was missing an eye.
  • My wife and I had been condemed to a little shack, nothing we were used to. The new cat looked almost exactly like Pluto, the only diference being a white patch on his chest in the shape of the Gallows! The cat adored me, always trying to be near me. One day, when going down the stairs, he went inbetween my legs and I grasped an axe to destroy the beast! My wife stopped me and I  implanted the axe in her head.  Imedially I thought of how to hide the murder. I decided to wall her up in the old chimney. Since, I had not seen the cat, and hoped it had ran. On the fourth day, the police came to investigate.
  • Don't get in my way!
  • Umm, sir? What's this?
  • YOU!
  • YOU!
  • In a frenzy to say something, I tapped the wall to prove its strength and was answered by a hideous wail! The police immediately struck down the wall! All at once we were struck by the horrible sight of my rotting wife and the beast! The beast with a bloody, dripping mouth and glowing red eyes! My nightmare had come true!
