May Ling here.
Do you recall Felix's Pet?
Well he didn't stay hidden under the litterboxpool for long.
In my excitement to get him, he ended up behind me!
After a mighty battle, in which he lost a few more appendages (appendagae?), he gimped underneath the stairs. Mommy took pity on him and told me to let him expire in peace.
She's a lousy peace-nik.
I settled in to wait. You never know, he might reappear. He could've become a zombie cricket--after all, Felix played with him first and in my considered opinion Felix is a little "off". If you know what I mean.
Suddenly I heard a noise! I went on High Alert.
Was I going to have to slaughter a newly-resurrected brain-thirsty beast?
Nope. It was a false alarm...he never came back, alive or undead. Rats.
Just as well, I suppose--Mommy doesn't care for crickets and a zombified one would prolly send her (even further) 'round the bend.
