As I posted earlier today, I wrote a short story about Peanut (which reminded me of one that I had written two years ago about Mathew–not so much in context, but more along the lines of how it brought the world of the pet forward into human terms).
I typed up the one from today and I hope you all enjoy it.
Again forgive the format.

The Silent Ninja Assassin
A Peanut Chew Story
By: Marcos Cosme
The Silent Ninja Assassin waited quietly (like he knew otherwise) in his cage all day. He paced back and forth wondering when he would be let out. The beast within was longing to be free, but his training had taught him otherwise.
He saw his Mother walking over to the cage. He ran back and forth watching, ever so impatiently, for the door to come down. â€œYes!â€ thought the little assassin. The door opened and he hopped out and around the cage and behind the couch as his Mom walked away.
Now was his chance to use his training. Here he would wait for the right time. He sat behind the couch for what seemed like a lifetime, silently waiting (like he knew otherwise) for the sign. â€œWhat would the sign be?â€ he thought. But he did not knowâ€¦would he know when the time came? That would be the ultimate findings of his ninja training.
â€œDonâ€™t blinkâ€ he kept thinking to himself. â€œIf you do you might miss it.â€
He sat behind the couch and waited. Seconds turned to minutes and he just sat there. He lowered himself to the ground to see past the couch.
â€œA silent ninja assassin stays quiet and still till the last possible momentâ€¦â€ he thought.
Suddenly movement from the kitchen, footsteps walking towards the living room. â€œWho is this?â€ the little assassin questioned. The Silent Assassin could hear his heart beat as he tried to see who was in the living room. Who ever it was sat at the seat in front of the computer.
â€œDaddy!â€ thought the Silent Assassin, â€œI meanâ€¦my targetâ€¦â€ he corrected his thoughts as he started his stealthy trek closer.
The Silent Ninja Assassin moved quickly and quietly towards his intended target. Under one table and rushing swiftly over the open plains of the carpet. This is a very dangerous area to be on, being caught out here in the open could prove to be very hazardous to the mission. Under the big table, stop for a moment, he checked out the situation, to make sure he was still safe. He stalked up to the other side of the big table, here he is closer to his target; plus, so far, the target hasnâ€™t even noticed his presence. This may be very easy.
The little Silent Ninja Assassin took a big deep breath and started the attack on the target. The assassin ran in circles around the target and did not get the attention he intended. He rubbed his head on the target and the target looked down and the little assassin continued running around the seat. He decided to switch it up and reversed his path and then stopped and went right through the middle of the under part of the seat and kept switching it up. All the while the target was laughing at the little Assassin.
The Assassin stopped and looked at the Target, breathing heavily, â€œFOOL!â€ he thought, â€œI am trying to hypnotize you!â€ The little Assassin continued to run around the Target as the Target tried to grab at him.
â€œIts no use, heâ€™s on to me,â€ thought the little Assassin. He decided to run off and jump back into his cage. He turned around to face the Target who turns back to the computer.
The Silent Ninja Assassin sighs as he sits in his cage, â€œI guess I need more trainingâ€¦â€
Yes, I do love my pets.
