This is my cat.
There are many like it, but this one is MINE.
My cat is my best friend. It is my life.
I must master it as I must master my life.
My cat without me is the same. Without my cat, I am useless.
I must buy food.
I must play straighter than my enemy who is trying to bite me.
I must fight him before he eats my ears.
My cat and myself know that what counts in war is not the milk we drink,
the noise of our belies, nor the smoke we inhale.
We know it is the birds that count. We will hunt them...
My cat is human, even as I, because it is my cat.
Thus, I will learn it as a cat.
I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories,
its sights, and its barrel.
I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage.
I will keep my cat clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready.
We will become part of each other. We will...
Before God I swear this creed.
My cat and myself are the defenders of my country.
We are the masters of our enemy.
We are the saviors
