Things were going according to plan. Cat watched the screens in front of him. He purred deeply as the hero went from screen to screen. Cat's minions providing just enough resistance to not alert the hero. His assistant Purdy stroked his fur.
“Yes,” he arched his back.
A moment later the hero crashed through the ceiling, ceiling board and dust crashing everywhere. Bongo the Dog coughed and flailed at the dust.
“The nefarious Cat, I should have known you were behind this!”
“Aren't I always?”
“But why lead me here?”
“Catnip?” asked Cat. Purdy placed a silver tray before Bongo.
“I don't have time for games!” Bongo the bulldog barked.
“Suit yourself,” Cat adjusted his golden monocle and took some catnip. Cat shivered and shook his head. “Darn! That was good.”
“That's it! I'm taking you in.”
“Not so fast!” said Cat shaking a paw left to right. “Purdy, ball.”
Purdy took out a shiny red ball and squeezed it.
“No! You're evil!”
Bongo barked, wagged his tail and jumped for the ball.
“Who's a cute little doggie then?” said Cat laughing. “Now fetch!”
Purdy opened a door to outside and threw the ball.
“I will get you for this,” barked Bongo running after the ball.
Cat rolled around on the floor laughing. “We sure showed him.”
“That you did,” said Purdy with a sigh.
“Don't sigh at me young lady," said Cat. "After the laser pointer incident of '09 I had to get him back.”
