BLURB

Is it a rat? A cat? Well actually it kind of looks like a gremlin. No that can’t be, they don't exist. But now I'm not so sure anymore. Wait, it's one of those little creatures you wear as an accessory! What are they called again. Big pointy ears, bulging eyes, black button nose, small body and even smaller legs. Very mischievous and sneaky beings. You'd think they are calm and cuddly, but to one's surprise they are quite the opposite. Aggressive and vicious, you better watch your fingers when trying to pet one of them. Perhaps the Napoleon complex reached into the canine world, for these little pests try to make up for what they lack in size. Come to think of it, I like it! They don't take crap from anyone or anything, not even that Rottweiler. They will stand their ground and fight until the death. Sadly the inevitability of the little Jack Russell biting the dust first is a given, but it’s the principle that counts. I must have one. [Alexia Kalteis]
