Lord Likely and the Lost Cat
Yes, dear readers – it is true. I have lost my prized pet lion, Thundercock.
The last I saw of him was when he was out playing on the lawn, merrily chasing a door-to-door salesman around the garden, playfully tearing at the man’s clothing with his ferocious claws. Ah, what a loyal pet he is!
However, a couple of hours later, I went to go and feed him with my man-servant, Botter (by which I mean I accompanied Botter who was performing said task, not that I was feeding the wretch to Thundercock himself, though I have come close on occasion). To my utter shock, horror and dismay, my poor pet had seemingly vanished into thin air.
If anyone has seen him, please do leave a comment letting me know where he is, and whether or not he has savaged any dignitaries or paupers (so that I know whether to reprimand him, or praise him).
‘Tis imperative dear Thundercock is returned to me, lest he falls into…common hands. Heavens! The very notion makes me want to vomit into my own hat.
Many thanks indeed, ladies and gentle-men.
– Lord Likely.
