All right, all right. Don't begrudge your King a little hyperbole now.
So last evening, the Human was cooperating with my desire for some fun playtimes with my very favorite Red Birdie wand toy.
She was dangling and swishing and whipping that thing like nobody's business. That little birdie was dancing, my friends.
Suddenly, though, that Red Sparrow reared up like Godzilla and whipped itself around, strangling my precious tailio--my tender floofy Tailio, Kitties! I took off like greased lightning, trailing that red snake behind me. The Human was laughing, I tell you, laughing like some kind of heartless maniac while I ran for my life.
Then, as I flashed by for the third or fourth time, she grabbed the stick part and held on and I kept running and that thing pulled my precious tailio right off, I tell you, off.
And yeah, sure, it looks all innocent now, posing for its picture, but I will never trust that little $#%$&@ again.
