This is the story of Poet, the Bengal boy-kitten's quest for the magical golden ribbons of power.
I look way too innocent to be the dominator of the universe. Hee hee hee...
But I am ferocious!
First I must convince this human who is trying to give directions that I am completely under his control.
Me? Trying to escape?
Yes! The Flying Nun ain't got nuttin' on me!
I will look innocent and she will think she can safely walk right by me with the golden ribbons of power.
Innocent faces really confuse humans.
OMG! She fell for it!
There they are - the golden ribbons of power!
The golden ribbons are necessary for world domination. I will attain them.
Capturing these ribbons is more difficult than it appears
If I stretch out to my full length she will be so dazzled by my beautiful coat that she will not see me grab the golden ribbons.
Finally the golden ribbons of power are mine! I shall dominate the universe!
I am the ruler of the universe, but I won't let it go to my head.
Now I have time to play one of my favorite games - Ha, ha, made you look.
There is a large monster at your feet!
(This will make her look and then I can say: Ha ha, made you look.)
Now he's behind your shoulder (she still hasn't looked - a tough cookie to crack).
Wait! It went over there!
It's *just* above your head now!
Finally! She looked!
Ha! Ha! Made you look!
You want to see me naked on this bear rug?
It is true that my dazzling racer stripes are quite beautiful.
And when you see my whole coat pattern you wonder if the night has a thousand eyes.
Papa is proud of my rosettes.
I suppose with my devastating beauty it is my fate to pose and pose and pose...
