In Which I Should Be Scared

Something strange happened yesterday.

I came home from running an errand, and instead of greeting me at the door like he normally does, The Boss' cat was sitting on the living room floor. I kicked off my shoes, and as I was taking off my jacket, I looked over at him.

He smiled at me. I know that sounds strange, but I swear that he did. I rubbed my eyes to make sure I wasn't seeing things, and sure enough... there he sat, calm and complacent, with a smug smile on his face.

I felt the small hairs on the back of my neck rise up. Something wasn't right.

I walked over to where he sat, and as I approached he stood up and walked into the kitchen. I looked down at the floor, and saw this:

My stomach dropped and a shiver ran up my spine.

He had arranged his toy puppy and a piece of string in such a way that it looked like he has eviscerated it. 

I looked over to see where the cat was, and he was sitting on the kitchen floor, unusually calm.

That could be you, he seemed to say. 

I was a little disturbed by this, but I brushed it off. I fed the cat and gave him some fresh water. 

... and I watched my back the entire evening.

One of my cats is a sociopath but she LOVES me, which is all that counts. Had to give the neighbor she attacked $200 me it was the easiest way out.
I'd stock up on meaty bones & dog porno if I were you.~Mary

Moonspun said...

Watch that he doesn't wrap those toy dog intestines around your neck...

The Social Frog said...

That's kind of amusing really :)

You're the one who feeds her, so you're safe!

I hope!

Heather said...

The funniest part is that you bought her a toy shaped like a tiny dog in the first place. You're encouraging her. ;P

MIT Mommy said...

Yes, I think that the fact your cat is playing with a dog voodoo doll is a little disturbing.

Rachel said...

Sus: I try to anyways. Creeps The Boss out.

Miss Grace: Oh, I am.

Frank and Mary: The sad thing is, that there is probably such a thing as dog porno these days.

Cape Cod Gal: I am afraid!

Moonspun: If he could, I'm sure he would.

The Social Frog: Amusing and creepy.

Splodge: I hope so, too!

Heather: The Boss got that for him. The cat freakin' loves that thing.

MIT Mommy: It is disturbing. I think he needs therapy.

Rachel: Weird in a creepy way.

A Reason 2 Write: Very true.

Lola said...

And that's why I'm coming back as a cat!

Kat said...

I think your cat might be a psychological terrorist.

Badass Geek said...

Lola: If you come back as a cat, I'll adopt you. But no peeking in at me when I'm showering.

Kat: I think so, too.
