If you have something to say, now would be the perfect time to keep it to yourself.
Wherein Colonel Phillips, Cat Wrangler Extraordinaire, displays his inherent cat-wrangling abilities.
The Rogerus Catticus is a stubborn and proud creature that loathes being a showcat. It wants to fight and do the right thing. The Cat-Wrangler knows it. The Cat-Wrangler tells the Rogerus Catticus where it should not go and what it should not do, because the Rogerus Catticus is a showcat and nothing more.
Out of spite, the Rogerus Catticus disobeys, and does exactly what the Cat Wrangler can’t order anyone else to do, because officially, he can’t send anyone in to do a job that will get them killed. But unleashing an irate, temperamental Rogerus Catticus is not giving an order.
The Cat Wrangler has simply laid a black sweater on the warmest, comfiest spot and told the Rogerus Catticus that he cannot sit there.
And if his glamorous assistant makes it known that the Cat Wrangler has laid out his jumper on purpose and that the Rogerus Catticus is going to try and sit on it, then people will try and stop the Rogerus Catticus.
So the Cat Wrangler forbids her from saying anything, and the Rogerus Catticus goes and jumps out of a high thing, sneaks in where he’s not meant to go, gets in fights with a Schmidtus Catticus, and brings home some half-dead things to show off to the Cat Wrangler.
He never realised that the Cat Wrangler laid out the black fluffy jumper for him on purpose.
