I, Effing Feline, have discovered the most wonderful cartoon every penned. Click the thumbnail below to behold the cartoon and bow down to its ultimate feline truth:
Today I’m selecting a snippet from Escapee, the upcoming science fiction romance by my pet human, Ed Hoornaert (aka Mr Valentine). Mr V likens this book to The African Queen in outer space. This scene compares to Humphrey Bogart returning to the destroyed mission where he’ll rescue Katherine Hepburn … except the role of grizzled supply ship captain is taken by Catteroon (Catt) Sayers, and she’s about to rescue the hero. Lance is her android copilot.
Never before had Catt gotten to Castle Mountain ahead of schedule. Of course, never before had her last supply stop, Rundle City, been reduced to bloody rubble.
For the last two hundred miles, she’d hidden under the cloud cover, taking advantage of rare calm weather. Now she fought the unresponsive command box to lift Escapee into the clear upper air. When they were free of the clouds, she hesitated before issuing her next command, afraid of what she might see.
“Amplify Castle Mountain.”
“Amplifying Castle Mountain visual,” Lance responded.
Seconds later, after the viewscreen flickered to life, Catt stared at utter devastation. She swallowed hard, hoping her lunch would stay down.
Effing Feline again. Great cattoon, eh?
