Diablo: She asked me to make a New Year's resolution.

Phoenix: And?

Diablo: She asked me not to bite her anymore.

Phoenix: And?

Diablo: We reached a compromise. I'll try not to break skin.

Phoenix: Tell me how come you are her favorite?

Diablo: I don't think we are going south.

Phoenix: Okay by me. I hate that traveling gig.

Diablo: Yeah, but look outside. See? There is snow everywhere.

Phoenix: It don't bother me. I'm not going out there.

Diablo: Yeah but...there isn't any more grass to eat.

Phoenix: Diablo, I think you been eating too much rabbit. Rabbits eat grass. You're a cat. You eat rabbit.

Phoenix: What do you see?

Diablo: Nothing.

Phoenix: Let me up there.

Diablo: Careful. Don’t push me.

Phoenix: Well? Are you going to do it?

Diablo: I’m pretty thirsty. I heard dogs do this all the time.

Phoenix: Yuck.

Diablo: It is kind of far down in there. I don’t know if I can reach the water.

Phoenix: Lean way over. Balance. Keep your tail back. Steady. Careful.


Diablo: I’m starving.

Phoenix: Me too.

Diablo: How come that lady isn’t coming inside to feed us?

Phoenix: I’m not sure. For some reason she can’t open the door. There is something wrong with the lock.

Diablo: I want something to eat. My belly hurts. It was last night when we had our last meal.

Phoenix: We can prowl around the kitchen and see if we can open something up.

Diablo: Valerie did a pretty good job locking everything up. I haven’t been able to open any cabinets. There isn't nothing on the counter except an onion. I might eat peas, but I got to draw the line on the onion. I’m not that hungry, yet.

Phoenix: We don’t have much water.

Diablo: The toilet…

Phoenix: Don’t even go there.

No Petting

Phoenix: Where the hell is everybody?

Diablo: I miss Valerie. No snacks. This lady comes in, feeds us, cleans the litter box and leaves. She watches us eat.

Phoenix: That is so you can’t sneak a bite of my food. You and your rabbit and pea diet.

Diablo: You can have some.

Phoenix: I’ll stick to beef and chicken byproducts, thank you.
