Prologue

He Plans His Escape

I don't know how long I've been here.

Machines beeped all around him.

I'm not sure I even know where I am anymore.

He heard the scientists speak, and his ears twitched.

I only know one thing.

As his shoulders began to shift, he heard them gasp.

I need to get out.

The cat opened his blood-red eye and snarled dangerously as the group of scientists around him started to scream.

I need to get out now.
