A young Master had a cat that he treated badly.
He was also a penny pinching miser and would turn the electricity to the house off at night.
It was during these times the cat wiggled into the crawl space above the ceiling.
Night after night the calico tabby gnawed at the fixtures, fasteners and electrical wire.
The cat knew his revenge would be his last act but the world would be a better place.
One day the Master threw a party and stood under a light for a long time giving a speech.
Sizzle, pop, thunk and gasp. Peace.
