I am the master of my domain. All that I see belongs to me and me alone….Hark! What is that I see? A trespasser?! They shall be punished for daring to cross into my domain without my permission!
As Nathan entered the living room, he crossed in front of the bookshelf. The next thing he knew, a big furball came hurtling down on top of him.
“What the-” he cried out while trying to keep his balance. Once steady, he reached up and plucked the tabby cat off his head. “Jake! What in world do you think you’re doing, you silly cat!”
Nathan set Jake down on the floor. Jake glared up at him.
You crossed into my domain! I am the master here and you must pay the price for trespassing!
Jake meowed at Nathan. Treats! Give me treats, right now, peasant!
Nathan looked down at Jake. “Let me guess. You want a treat. All right. I’ll get you one in just a minute.”
Jake meowed. Now! Right now, peasant!
“Yeah, yeah. I know. I’m going right now,” Nathan said as he plucked a book from the shelf and headed towards the kitchen. “Bossy cat,” he muttered. “Thinks he owns the place.”
