Doctor of Philosophy's cat Gift
The year I wrote my doctoral thesis, I shared a house with a Canadian classmate who had a cat named Monster.
Monster has to eat and drink, but still love hunting, not why, just to prove that it can do.
Sometimes, I wake up in the morning, an eye, will see the half-dead bird, in front of the nose struggle.
Sometimes it's a semi-live snake, sometimes a rabbit, sometimes a squirrel or a smaller mouse.
Not why, just to prove it.
I have no doubt that monster will one day give me a bloody horse's head, as it did in The Godfather's movie.
Once, my roommate came home for Christmas and entrusted me with the monster.There is a big snow, snow deep 80cm,monster but all night did not go home, the next morning, I shouted in the streets:
Monster, Monster, Monster, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty …
While shouting and shaking.I thought you were about to show up, after you send me anything, I will accept it.
I shouted in the ice and snow all morning, lost the meaning of life to turn home, as soon as I came home to see him sitting gracefully on the sofa, looking out of the window, the sight did not look at me.I immediately believed a rumor about cats: "The only reason cats are such noble hunters, willing to be with humans, is that they are waiting for their owners to die and eat a free meal."」
