The Cat's Diary (right page of a two-page layout)


It's a cold, rainy night here, a perfect night for scrapping! No point at all to these two pages--none--except that I had fun making them. The story and credits for this page can be found on The Dog's Diary, the left page of this two-pager.


The Cat's Diary (journaling)
"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 throw up on the carpet. Today I captured a mouse and dropped it 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. Stupid humans!


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


The annoyingly perky female guard insisted on taking my picture for something called a “layout.” Feh! I do not know what this is, but I saw that it was important to her, so I confounded her efforts by turning away at the last moment and giving my fiercest scowl.


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.


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 a simpleton. 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..."
