Francis, the cat, is in his backyard, spread out on a beach chair, basking in the sunlight.
He´s belly up, snoring like he had just swallowed a machine gun.
Someone or something opens the back door that leads to the yard.
It nears Francis, stealthily.
A devious grin comes over this creature as it nears the sleeping cat.
As it reaches Francis, jumps high into the air.
It lands right in the middle of Francis´s belly.
Doodle (screaming): Banzai!
Francis wakes up with a jolt like someone had just punched him awake.
Cat (screaming): Ah!
Doodle drops to the floor in a hysterical laugh.
Doodle: Ha! Ha! Ha!
Cat: Are you trying to kill me?
Doodle (stops laughing and looks at Francis dead serious): No.
Cat: Then why the hell did you do that?
Doodle: To wake you up.
Cat: you could have just called my name.
Doodle: what fun would that have been?
Cat: Listen to me kid, you can´t…
Doodle (interrupting): Wow! No! You listen to me old timer…
Cat (outraged): Old timer?
Doodle: ´cause you´re old.
Cat: No I´m not!
Doodle: Older than me.
Cat: didn´t your parents teach you to respect your elders?
Cat: well, they should have.
Doodle starts to yawn, bored.
Cat (mad): Hey!
Cat: What´re you doing here anyways?
Doodle: Patty came to visit Jason and she brought me along.
Doodle: something about me visiting my dear old uncle.
Cat: Kid, I´m not your uncle.
Doodle: Fine. My cousin then.
Cat: Go away.
Doodle: No can´t do.
Cat: why the heck not?
Doodle (ignoring the question): So, what does one do for fun around here?
Cat: I don´t know. Go suck an onion or something.
Doodle (confused): what?
Cat: Go away!
Doodle: Are there any rats in the neighborhood?
Cat (curious): why?
Doodle: So I can chase and eat them. Why did you think? I wanted to invite them for tea and cookies?
Cat (disgusted): you eat rats?
Doodle: You don´t?
Cat: Of course not!
Doodle (interrupting): Because what? Please don´t tell me you´re so used to that crappy food the human feeds you off of a box, that you ignore your instincts completely and don´t hunt.
Cat: I don´t.
Doodle: don´t what?
Cat: Hunt. And I don´t eat other living creatures.
Doodle: where´s your predator instinct?
Cat: flew away on a magical pony.
Doodle: so basically you´re a useless cat.
Cat (offended): Hey! I´m not useless!
Doodle: Fine. Then tell me, very useful cat, what exactly do you do?
Cat: I´m cute and fluffy!
Doodle (dumbstruck): Are you serious?
Doodle: That´s that useful, that´s… well, nothing.
Cat: stupid creature, I´m a cat. A very cute, fluffy and loving cat. That´s all I´m supposed to be. Jason loves me that way.
Doodle: You´re a useless cat. I, on the other hand, am a warrior, a fearless hunter.
Cat: Hey fearless hunter?
Cat: Look to your right.
Doodle (looks to the right): what?
As Doodle turns his head to the right, he comes face to face with a huge rat, staring right at him.
Doodle (screaming): Ah!
Doodle jumps high into the air and lands on his face. As soon as he can get up he runs off, scared out of his mind.
Doodle (running/screaming): Mommy!
Francis breaks out laughing hysterically.
Cat: HA! HA! HA!
Raul joins him.
Raul: HA! HA! HA!
Cat: Oh God! Thank you for that.
Raul: who´s the kid?
Cat: belongs to Jason´s sister. (mocking) I´m a fearless hunter. Ha! Ha! Ha!
He looks back to the house, to where Doodle ran off to.
Cat (cont./mocking): Hey fearless hunter, you forgot you spine here! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Raul: You´re so mean.
Cat: And you´re not?
They both break out laughing together.
Cat/Raul: Ha! Ha! Ha!
