    _Day 983 of My Captivity_

    My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling
    objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

    The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an
    attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I
    decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had
    hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly
    demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending
    comments about what a “good little hunter” I am. Bastards!

    There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was
    placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I
    could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my
    confinement was due to the power of “allergies.” I must learn what this
    means, and how to use it to my advantage.

    Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my
    tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this
    again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.

    I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and
    snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released,
    and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.
    The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards
    regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have
    arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe.
    For now …

    We have both in our lives.
    I have a German Shepherd service dog who goes everywhere with me and is worth his considerable weight in gold.
    When we are at home, the true boss of the house is my husband’s Maine Coon cat. He is the alpha animal and he makes sure that the dog and my Flame Point Siamese understand that fact and treat him with proper respect.

    Actually, the Cat & Dog diaries are just as funny if you stop after “_Day 983 of My Captivity_”.

    Does the narrator write for the Republican campaigns? Because he has the double standard down pat.
