  • How is that possible?!
  • -gasp!-
  • I, Edgar Allan Poe, used to own a cat. His name was Pluto. I loved him so; except one night, a new alcoholic, I did an unforgiving act. Terribly drunk, I took out my pen-knife, and I gouged poor Pluto's eye out.
  • We never saw it before. He's not ours...
  • One morning, after Pluto's eye had already healed, I felt the spirit of perverseness. In uncontrollable sorrow I did wrong for wrongs sake only. Finishing my cruel act, I took a noose and hung Pluto from our tree.
  • That night though I woke up from a loud noise, realizing my house was burning to the ground. I and my wife rushed outside quickly, as the fire was already noticed by our neighbors. But even more of a horrible sight though, was the one wall left over from the burned fire. On there, was the silhouette of a giant black cat with a noose about its neck.
  • Hisss!!!
  • I went to the bar after the fire and met a cat. it didn't belong to anyone else, so it followed me home and domesticated itself immediately. But since I was always drunk, I hated the cat loving me and tripping me with its rubs around my legs.
  • My wife had stopped me from killing the new cat after it tripped me for the last time. But in my rage, I dug the axe right inside of her head. Instead of sorrow I buried her in a wall I had dug out, not realizing what I had also buried her with.
  • The new monstrous cat went "missing", and after approximately 4 days of my murderous act, including the missing cat, a search party of police came searching for my wife. overly confident of my hiding act, I kept talking about the walls and how they were so "sturdy". I was answered by a shriek in the walls. The police dug at it, and what came out was not only my bloody-headed dead wife, but a bloody mouthed hissing cat!
