Storyboard Text

  • I was best friends with my owner. I followed him everywhere. Recently, though, he has been becoming more angry and violent.
  • One day he came home after a long day of drinking and partying. I could tell he wasn't happy so I tried to stay away. He lunged at me and I had no choice but to attack.
  • His eyes filled with rage as he grabbed me and lifted me off the ground, cutting my eye out.
  • A few days later, he dragged me out to a tree and hung me in a noose. This isn't over. I will get revenge.
  • After my demise, I manifested into the form of another cat, whom he would find at a bar. I was going to make sure that this man got the punishment he truly deserved.
  • I had annoyed him since the day he brought me to his house. One day, he came at me with an axe. His wife stopped him from killing me with it...
  • Until he killed her...
  • He buried the body in the cellar wall. Days later, the police came looking for her. Little did he know, I too was in the wall. As the police were about to leave, I decided to blow his cover.
  • Then he was taken to jail. The end.
