Interview with Cat

Character interview:
Cat which moved in with PJ
Q: What is your Name?
A: I do not have a formal name, or any nick names. PJ calls me
Cat, most of the time.
Q: Would you like a name?
A: I need to think about that. A name gives an aura of power in
a story, I tend to think of myself as a background character. Although
a name would be nice just in case PJ needs to refer to me when she
is out of the house. For now, Cat is a very good name.
Q: Where do you come from?
A: A very good question. I originally was a member of a six kitten
litter in the corner of a barn over in Columbia. But Mom
shooed us out when I was a wee kitten. I hitched a ride with a
furniture mover to Silver Springs, then down to Takoma Park, a short
hop on the Metro during rush hour, a run along Q Street NW, and I
found myself living in the murderer’s garage. I was just over a year
old and learning things about humans which scared me more than if
I was in a shelter. Once I learned what Peri was doing to fight
the Commies I decided to move in with her. So I waited for her
to leave the door open and I moved in. She does have a nice place.
Q: What do you do to help Peri?
A: Being a cat there is very little I can do. I try to stay out of her way, no use tripping her. Otherwise, I make the house look nicer. When she is out of the house I like to guard the house, you know keep the damned. Commies out of here.

Q: Are there other ways you help her?
A: Oh. Do you mean the physical things in case one of the bad guys
gets in here?
Q: Yes.
A: Well. You should have asked that. I do not like humans, you
included. I did not include that in my bio, you did read my bio? That my
thirty-ninth great-grandfather was a palace guard. That was not by m1stake.
It was on purpose. How would you like to forewarn your enemies that you
will scratch their eyes out and the is literally take their
eyeballs out. That does not do. Do not let your enemies knew your true
firepower. I have so much more I can do to, but I will not talk about it anymore.
Q: Okay. What do you eat?
A: I am very selective in what I eat. First is nothing that a human will eat, or at least nothing my human eats. I have tried feeding
her perfectly good mice, and rats but she runs away with them and
they go. away in the big water bowl.
Q: Besides keeping Peri company what else do you do?
A: I do not keep that person company. At best she is allowed to
be around me.
Q: Okay. I am sorry.
Q: So. you help Peri in any of her fight against the Soviets?
A: Of course. She is able to leave here completely comfortable
knowing that no Commie will survive attacking her home.
Q: Do you have any plans on moving to a new home?
A: Good gawd no! This is one choice assignment. Three squares
a good bed and a very nice CO … No this is a good place to stay.
