Storyboard Text

  • I married young, and got along well with my wife because she loved animals as much as I did. 
  • We had an assortment of pets, but my favorite was our cat, Pluto. He was my best friend. Pluto was completely black and very large.
  • During mine and Pluto's friendship, I hate to say it, but I began to drink, more and more over time. By each day, I became more moody, irritable, and selfish. I became violent  towards my wife and the animals, except Pluto. I deeply regret doing this. 
  • But one night, I did something I will never forgive myself for. 
  • One night when i came home from a long night of drinking, I thought Pluto was ignoring me. I grabbed him by the neck and cut out his eye with my pocket knife.
  • Pluto's empty eye socket was making me feel guilty, then enraged for being guilty. After a few days, I couldn't take it, so I took the cat outside, slipped a noose around his neck, and hung him. 
  • That night, I woke to the sound of a blazing fire. My wife and I got out alive and in the ruins, the image of a cat was burned into the wall.
  • I convinced myself that Pluto's death and the image on the wall weren't related and moved on. 
  • I stroked the cat and when I began to leave, the cat followed me home. 
  • When I got home, my wife immediately fell in love with the cat, so we had to keep him.  
  • One night I was at a bar with a bad reputation, and there was a black cat sitting on a barrel of gin! 
  • I soon began to dislike the cat, though. And the morning after it followed me home, I discovered it was missing one eye, like Pluto.  
  • Of course that just made my wife love and more. I just avoided the cat, and it looked for me more. This made me very angry.
