A man and his feline companion A struggling alcoholic’s love for his cat. The Black Cat is a twisted short story that brings the reader through a chaotic recollection of the narrator’s past. Word choice sets the tone early on in this story giving it chaotic sense of the narrator’s distorted thought process. The narrator recounts his experiences with “The black Cat” however he fails to realize that it is a mere figment of his imagination. “The Black Cat” our narrator see’s is in reality a symbolism for his struggle with alcohol.
But this blow was arrested by the hand of my wife … I withdrew my arm from her grasp and buried the axe in her brain. She fell dead upon the spot, without a groan” (Poe). This is very similar in presentation to how The Tale-Tale Heart presents it, not that big of a deal that you did the act. The narrator kills his wife without a second thought because he wanted to kill the cat, but what I take from it is that he does not care about his wife enough that killing her does not mean anything to him, and that is insanity. In The Tell-Tale Heart the narrator does a very similar thing to what happens in The Black Cat, kills someone with no feelings of remorse for a very arbitrary reason.
“Pluto—this was the cat’s name—was my favorite pet and playmate.” He said. (Poe, the black cat) He had abused everyone and all the pets he had. But yet he did not abuse Pluto. He loved that black cat, but then he became ill due to the amount of alcohol

Some cats use a slow rhythmic motion, while others knead fast as if they are performing in a parade. Some cats also knead when they want to show affection to their owner. If your cat kneads on your chest or in your lap, it is most likely that it is showing its love for you. However, this can be painful for the owner as a cat can dig its paws in you. The happier the cat is, the harder it will knead.

The Butter Battle Book was the event known in history as the Cold War. In addition to Dr. Seuss symbolism, Dr. Seuss used rhyme as another poetic element in his books One example of Seuss’s use of rhyme in the Cat in the Hat is, “…Make that cat go away! Tell that Cat in the Hat you do NOT want to play... He should not be about...when your mother is out!”. The use of end rhyme such as “away and play” and “about and out” is scattered throughout many of Dr. Seuss’s
The two cats are stated to be almost identical in nature. They are both abnormally large, black, missing an eye, and extremely “sagacious (64).” The only notable difference of course being the white spot on the second cat’s chest that eventually turns into gallows, which is significant as reminds the narrator he hung the first cat. These two cats represent the two sides of the narrator’s personality. The earlier cat’s innocence allows it to be the victim of the narrator’s actions. The second cat, on the other hand, is the cause of the narrator’s actions in the latter half of the story.

“If I get a cat, should I name it Daisy or Fred?” I asked my boyfriend, sipping out of my water at Applebee’s, a conversation that was quite the norm for us. I stared at him in a serious expression waiting for his answer. The lights were dim, resembling a nice quiet candle-lit night in, as an 1800’s novel would portray. The dim lighting set a good mood for this type of conversation, as the lights hit his face perfectly, bringing out the soft features in his face. “Wait, wouldn’t that depend if you get a cat that is a boy or a girl?” His face smirked as it always did whenever we talked about this topic.
