I can see him coming. He doesn’t know I’m waiting for him to walk around that corner. Quiet! He must not hear me, or will surely run. I see his head, now his body and finally his long tail. It’s time. I leap! Got him! He struggles tries to bite back but I have a good hold, he is not going anywhere. I’m silent, but the noise he is making, it will wake the whole house. Silence you fool. Just then the lights come on above and I hear footsteps. It’s too late I have been discovered. “Whiskers! Let go of Misty!” I release him unwillingly. Misty gives a look of pure victim. While I know better. My human walks away, but when they are out of sight I’m seized by my brothers jaws and it starts all over again.
