I let out almost silent meows of delight. As the only cat of the household, my owner will never find me here.
“Kitty? Where are you?” Alice calls. “I have something nice for you.”
Ah … bribery. Nope–not gonna work with this feline.
“It’s some special food I know you’ll love.”
Aw, cripes. I can’t resist a new culinary delight. So I decide to make an entrance. I dash out of my hiding place, weaving around furniture. Alice gasps, dropping the food, which I devour. Then, next thing I know, she’s caged me!
“Nice try,” Alice coos. “Vet time now.”
