This week, when I had to give Princess Piggy Poo her fluids, there was a show on TV called Zoo based on a James Patterson novel. I think watching this show was giving Princess Piggy Poo some bad ideas.
Based on this first episode, Zoo is about animals turning on people. Maybe it will be a Planet of the Apes for cats. Male lions in Africa have banded together to hunt and kill people using diabolical human strategies, just because now they can. And dozens of house cats in Brentwood, CA have run away from home and up a tree. I don’t think the fire department will be called to rescue the kitties in the next episode, because it looks like they will be terrorist tabbies with something nefarious up their paws.
When the commercial for Zoo came on while my parents were visiting, my father said, “Who would want to watch that?” Princess Piggy Poo, that’s who. She may have a guinea pig-sized brain but she seemed to be taking it all in. And I’m sure there’s some awareness on her part that her teeth can be vicious.
I understand Princess Piggy Poo wanting to get back at me for sticking a needle in her back and filling her with warm fluids — a little jumping and attempted biting is to be expected — but I didn’t like the look of revenge in her cunning cavy eyes. My plan is to move our weekly fluid shot to another night when there is something tame is on TV. What ever happened to shows like Lassie, Flipper, Gentle Ben and Mister Ed? Maybe those shows are partly why the animals in Zoo are revolting.
