Cynthia: Sigh… I don’t know what it is about old photos but I could look at them all day.
Marcy: It’s four o’clock in the afternoon. You have been looking at them all day.
Cynthia: Every day more of these vintage photos of women with cats gets pinned to Pinterest. Seriously. Every day. My vintage photo board is up to 153 pins. Where do they come from? I guess they just languished in old photo albums and shoe boxes until a few years ago when the internet made it socially acceptable to be cat crazy.
Marcy: Us cats hypnotized you humans eons ago. The proof is in the photos.
Cynthia: You’re right, Marcy. The girl in the photo looks like one of the last Russian princesses. She has that entranced gaze of someone who’s been hypnotized. And, that wall eyed kitty looks like he is channeling Rasputin and is the one who hypnotized her.

Cynthia (her eyes dilating): It’s quite uncanny. It’s quite creepy. It’s like you cats have the same hypnosis talents as the mystical Rasputin who helped destroy the Russian monarchy.
Marcy (in her hypnotist voice): You will now go and get me Friskies.
Cynthia’s eyes glaze over and she smiles beatifically.
Cynthia: Sure. Okay.
Cynthia wanders over to the Cat Cabinet to get Marcy her dinner two hours before Friskies o’clock.
Marcy: All of us puddy tats have a little Rasputin in us.
Marcy smiles evilly and mystically as she eats her Friskies two hours earlier.
