The curious caterpillar crept across the kitchen floor.
The sleepy man turned on the coffee machine.
The very hungry cat meowed at the man.
Meow. Meow. Meow.
I just fed you, said the man.
The very hungry cat looked at something on the floor.
The very hungry cat played with it a little, as cats do.
What the hell’re you playing with? said the man.
Don’t eat that, he said.
The man squinted because his eyes weren’t focused yet. It was still early.
The man bent over and tried to pick up what the very hungry cat was playing with.
It looked like green felt, to his bleary eyes.
But it felt like a warm piece of fat.
Yuck, said the man.
Meow. Meow. Meow, said the very hungry cat.
Frickin’ caterpillar come from, said the man.
Go ahead and eat it, said the man.
