The second-story pertaining to the “Black cat”; the way it displayed entrapment was the guilt that he had from murdering his cat. This quote demonstrates his own guilt “...I am also shame to own - -yes even in this felon cell...” (Poe 3) This dictates how his own guilt traps him and his own self not just physically, but mentally.
