“Believe in yourself… take care… my boy.” After that, I heard a few wisps of breathes… and then her lungs never moved any longer. She took care of me when my parents left me… and now I was alone. My heart became to fill with hate, anger, sadness, and the feeling of revenge. I would keep to Whiteclaw’s words… and protect my alley, even if it takes me to her!
I crouched and waited, for I knew that this very night… the Hellhounds would come. They would try and kill more alley cats, but I still remembered that dreaded night like it was this morning… I am now 2 years old, and still have the same feelings that I did that night. Hatred, and revenge is what I felt the most tonight, I swore to myself that if I would not drive all of them out… I would not let them leave without at least one less from their group! Lying dead! So, I listened with ears pricked, and eyes alert. For I saw the same shadow that I had that night before, closing in around the same corner… but suddenly, I was in a flashback from then, when I saw the shadow… the blood trickling down, her dying in my paws.
But I was awoken by those Demon paws striking me down to the ground. The force was so powerful, that it knocked the breath out of me! I screamed and squirmed, but it had me pinned to where I couldn’t escape! I knew what I would have to do… so, I lay there limp. And the Hellhound was distracted by another cat that he left me. I knew that I could have fought back, but I failed. So, I quickly hauled myself onto my paws, and headed towards where the Hellhound had gone.
I saw another flash of black… and then nothing. That was the series that happened every couple nights; they would show up… kill a couple cats, then leave. That was my life… I am always the lucky one! Everyone either dies or leaves, but new cats always come… but I stay true to my word, and will never leave my home.
“What the… where is everybody?” I asked myself as I hopped out from under a box. As I searched around, I could find nobody… ‘Now… where could anybody… be?’ I asked myself confused. “You take a five minute cat nap… and when you wake up, everyone leaves!” I yelled frustrated.
“Where is the next kitty litter?” I heard a woman-cat whimper… now first, she sounded like a pretty little housecat… and what was a ‘kitty litter’?
“Excuse me…” I asked as I searched from where the voice came from. “Who are you and what are you talking about? What do you mean… kitty litter?” And then as I turned the corner, I saw her… as purely beautiful and white as Whiteclaw! My jaw dropped as I saw her, for I felt like I had knew her all of my life! “May I help you?”
“Yes, where… oh, I am Pollypaw. And who are you?” She asked as she batted her eyelashes towards me.
“I am… I don’t know?” I answered stupidly… but I never knew a name besides pest… robber… and ‘The Shadow’ but that was just a cool nickname.
“Silly kitty, I’ve been called mind blowing before but wow… this is pretty extreme!” she said as she started to pad towards me. “Now, what is your name?”
“No… really, I don’t know- I don’t have a name.”
“Oh dear… well, I’ll just have to give you one then… I mean… if you don’t mind!”
“Oh, no that’s fine!” I said thoughtlessly.
“Now… I’ll have to get to know you before I name you so… mind showing me around?” she asked me as she flicked her tail around my whiskers.
“Sure, no problem… where do you want to go,” I asked as I led her towards my home/corner.
“Anywhere warm.” She said as she sat down, and curled her tail around her paws and shivered.
“Oh no… today is the day that they come!” I yelled.
