Rule one - something has happened to him. He is cold. He's not giving me food or touching me. I've waited as long as I can. I'm hungry and the water is gone. The litter box is full.
Rule two - time to go out. I don't like being out. Out is noisy, dangerous and violent. I like being in or just on the edge of outside. There is so much outside.
I need food. I'm hungry. Rule three - find food and eat.
He resembles my person. Perhaps he will give me food.....
Rule four - run. Hide.
I don't know what happened. He looked like my person but he spoke and moved and now I hurt. Rule five, don't trust people. Keep away from them. Will be hard. I can't see. The blood in my mouth is making me sick.
Rule six, find help. Stay away from people, find food and water, eat, hide, stay safe, and find help.
That noise is food. This way. Another person, beware. Remember rule five. Don't want to do it but I smell food. Rule three. Must approach him. Speaking hurts. Eating hurts. Don't let him touch me. Remember rule five. Follow rule four.
Food at last, food at last, employ rules three and four, eat, run and hide. Try to follow rule six and find help. I need help.
Rule seven: he can be trusted. He will give me food. Rule eight. He can touch me. Rule nine: she may touch me. Rule ten...I may stay in here. It seems safe....
Rule eleven, stay close to him. Keep an eye on him.
Remember rule one.
Don't let another leave me.
