Inside Wildwood Mansion

Inside Wildwood Mansion, take
a look around. A cat can be
found standing on a stool. His
words are soft, purring, while
his mind is ever feral. For bait,
he uses maple sugar candy, holding
it out enticingly near two caged
birds. The birds scream
with laughter, standing away from
the front of their cage. Cat is angry.
One bird says, ‘Are you nuts? We can
get worms from sugar.’ At that point,
the mansion’s lord returns, yells at
the startled cat, and boots him off
the stool.  And it all happened
inside Wildwood Mansion.

    That silly cat will have to work harder if he wants to fool those birds – and be faster than the master of the mansion.

    i don’t think the cat will give up for he will put his thinking cap on ans continue to terrorize those birds waiting for a tiny gap in the cage door, later explaining to his owner that they must have flown away!

    Wise birds! I disapprove of the treatment of the cat, though! 🙂
