October 18, 2016-My heart sank and I stayed completely still…had I heard this correctly? That the small human was missing? I did a quick tally; it was about to grow to three if I didn’t do something soon. Simba was missing and now the small human…I couldn’t bear it any longer.
“Open the bag,” the female voice commanded, “I want to see what’s inside.” There was a second of silence before my large human spoke, his voice was flat and unwavering, “You already know what’s inside,” he said. “OPEN. THE. BAG.,” the voice repeated. I could tell her patience was wearing thin by the way that she spoke in syllables.
I had no idea what was in the bag that the large human was holding but I knew that it was NOT one black cat! I needed to act quickly so I took my sharpest nail and made a slit in the top of the duffel bag. I tore through the opening and bit the hand of the tall, thin woman who had tried to abduct me yet again. There was no way I was going to surrender! She would never take me again! She screamed out in pain and dropped the bag on the floor, in the midst of the chaos my large human swung the bag that he was holding and knocked out three of the henchmen that surrounded the tall, thin woman. It was absolute mayhem but time stood still for me.
I watched as it all unfolded in slow motion, like a beautiful dance. My large human swung around and whirled the bag around in the air, above his head and let loose on anything that got in his way. Henchmen flooded into the warehouse from their hiding spots and I watched as my large human took them out one at a time. It was glorious! He scooped me up and while we raced to the truck, he barreled over the tall, thin woman and her henchmen scurried to help her to her feet.
We bounded out the back door and raced to the truck, we were almost one hundred and fifty meters from it and we would be safe! There was a moment of silence and then a huge BANG…I watched in horror as the truck exploded in front of us.
