Cat



He woke up that morning in disbelief. It was insane, and illogical. He purred and mewed, angry at the stupid actions that were being implemented in the society.

The Ministry of Cat had introduced a new rule. Fish would be banned in the state. Any cat or kitten, found eating a fish, or in possession of one, will be awarded strict punishment.

Why should the Ministry decide his diet? Weren't there other important issues that needed more attention than what one ate?

The cat had no answer. He smelt fish cooking in a nearby house, and walked away dejected.

  3. Poor cat, but he's right! Society, government should never tell us what we can and can't eat but sadly, here in the US, it's already starting. The government here is getting too big for their britches so to speak.. Too much government can be a bad thing.. A sad tale Amrit.. A sad tail!
