New Girlfriend’s Cat Unsure “The Fuck You Think You’re Looking At”

Tensions ran high early Thursday evening as local cat, and ardent defender of your new girlfriend Becca, Pawb Ross, was unsure “the fuck you think you’re looking at.” 

While you’ve been dating Becca for almost three months, you can’t shake the feeling that every time you walk into her apartment Pawb is somewhere, watching, and more likely than not, plotting. 

“Something wrong with your eye, boy?” the eyes of the four-year-old American shorthair question as perched atop his cat tower, he sharpens his claws. “What’s funny to me is you looking over here, act’n like I know you. Because brother, let me drop some knowledge on you: I was here long before you, and Imma be here eight lives after you’re gone. So do me a favor and take all that psss pss psss bull-spit somewhere else.”

“He’s really very friendly,” Becca tells you as she tousles Pawb's well-manicured mane, “he just needs some time to warm up to you.” A sweet sentiment, but one you and Pawb both know couldn’t be further from the truth, as all attempts to bond with Pawb have been as successful as the Hindenburg. 

As this issue goes to print, you swear on everything you hold dear that as you and Becca walked out the door, you felt his eyes on you. You turned back to look, and there he was, sitting on the window sill, eyes like twin daggers. As your eyes met, he dragged a single outstretched claw across his throat.
