Under the shade of an oak tree, Calico Kasey rested, waiting patiently for her human to come feed her. What she didn’t realize was that it was Labor Day Weekend.
“How was I supposed to know that she would be gone for three days?” Kasey said. “If I had known, I would have made plans to catch some food. But now all the good hunting spots will be taken.”
Kasey strolled to the woods hoping to find a few shrews. Unfortunately, she met confrontation with Tabby Thomas and Ginger Garlic who had already called the territory.
“They were all like, ‘You get off our turf, you mangy fur ball.’ When it comes to food, cats can be so aggressive,” Kasey said. “I’ll have you know that my human brushes me at least twice a week.”
Kasey went to the Student Center next, hoping to find a human who would pity her. But no one was there. The entire campus was empty.
Later that night, she walked to Chicken Express across the street to see if she could find anything in the garbage. Once there, she met brutal retaliation by Centerstone’s local cat gang, the Catnipped Crew. They pushed her into a corner and proceeded to pummel her with paws.
“If anybody tries to steal grub from our territory, they get busted,” leader of the Catnipped Crew Jaguar ‘The Scar’ Johnson said. “We make sure they learn their lesson.”
Broken and defeated, Kasey limped back to her spot under the oak tree and collapsed. Believing it to be the end, she closed her eyes.
When she awoke, she was in a dimly lit room decorated with cat posters. Kasey tried to move but felt resistance. Looking down, she noticed her body was wrapped in bandages.
“What the cat is going on here?” she meowed loudly.
The door swung open and her female human entered the room. She walked over to Kasey and carefully stroked her fur.
“I couldn’t go see Kasey this weekend because I was preparing my apartment so she could come live with me,” the female human said. “I never thought she would try to steal food from a cat gang.”
The human promised Kasey that she would never be alone again.
For the first time in her life, despite being sore and beaten up, Kasey felt at home. As her human pet her, she purred herself back to sleep.
