(Teamwork with Shi Chen)
I met a cat.
It can’t be true.
Well at least not in my neighborhood.
Usually a cat lives in the upper-class neighborhoods like Upper side or near the mountain where the
My neighborhood is filled with slums, disease and violence. A cat will never come here.
For thousands of years, we human beings had been fighting against each other, for religious, civil
rights, gender, resource and so on…Until cats came along and put all these dispute into an end. Cat
became the ultimate symbol for everything. The scale of our cities started to change to adapt cat’s
lifestyle. Vertical structure is preferred, and strings are everywhere for cats to walk on. Tons of litter
were dumped in suburban area. Farmlands were transferred into catnip fields. To be adopted by a
cat, a catnip field is a must-have. And the waiting list is already endless now. I am still working my
way up to gain my first catnip box. For those who cannot afford buying a field, you can purchase
a laboratory catnip box with lower fee. Sometimes, they are still attractive to some domestic cats.
And now there is a cat standing in front of me.
I looked at her perfect, turquoise peaceful eyes, thinking about how to start a conversation without
scaring her away. That is when I heard the voice.
“Human being No. 13594652, agree for adoption?”
“To hell yes!” What just happened?
“Man, he’s lucky” “Wow that almost never happened!” “A cat would never adopt such a loser!!”
Before I realized, I am finally a decent human being with a cat. Now I’m gonna show her my first box.
