The Assassin

Giles Ravensburger adopted a cat.
He spent months training the creature to assassinate his enemies.
Sharpened its claws to even pointier points.
The cat didn't appear to be absorbing the lessons.
It needled at Giles's thighs.
Each talon piercing through his skin.
Small volcanoes of blood formed upon his legs.
The cat curled up and purred with delight.
