Once upon a time there was a rather bright cat with a rather dull brother.
One day, Mr. Bright announced, “I hate city living!”
Vowing to follow his dreams, he began an epic journey, until he detected the pitter-patter of cat feet behind him.
“Go home!” he meowed at Mr. Dull.
Mr. Bright shuddered at a wind growing colder as night drew near. “I don’t know.”
“MeeeeRrrrAAARRRRRRR,” Mr. Dull shouted.
A kind human heard his cries. Now they live in a mansion, have a cat door, and wear badges on their collars.
Sometimes loud triumphs over brilliance.
