It’s not nice to laugh at the suffering of others, I know.
But if you’ve ever put a cone on a cat or dog, you’ve probably seen the way they sit like their head is weighted down, and they can no longer move.
And then they just look at you.

Why, human? Why?
You will pay for this indignity one day!

I certainly hope they can’t plot against us, otherwise we’re all in trouble. Maybe that’s why some people wake up with a cat on their face, or a dog shoving them out of the bed?
Perhaps that is their subtle but fiendish way of repaying us for the indignities of cones, funny haircuts, and cute costumes. To target us in our sleep, when we are at our most vulnerable…
Or maybe we’re just on the comfy bed, and not paying attention to them.
