Diablo was livid. His Feeder was going on vacation, leaving him in the care of a lowly cat-sitter. He vowed to exact his revenge. When he found the credit card lying on the kitchen counter, Diablo made his move. He pawed at the shiny object, deftly grabbed it with his teeth, and ran to conceal it behind the sofa. When the Feeder arrived at the airport and discovered her loss, she would make her ugly crying sounds. It would serve her right. Feline karma is unforgiving. When the Feeder returned, Diablo would punish her further by ignoring her for days.
