5th sentence, 74th page: I think most of the human slaves get fed by-products.
Animals have decided to take over, and MacDonald is right in the middle of it.
I like it when stories flip our point of view right on its head. It’s kind of a different way to look at the world, and really think about your actions. The fact that this one is about pets, and while I was reading it, I had one dog behind me, and one in front…
The animals turn the tables on the humans. Lead, of course, by cats. I liked the way they did it too. And the fact that the voice telling the story is the only human who is really kept in a cage of any standard… he suddenly is forced to become the house pet when all of his fellow humans are forced into a very different form of slavery.
I think after reading this short story, I might let my puppy have the cuddles that she’s been pushing for for the last hour. You just never know.
