This school is so fun. Even though people are mean. So when people are mean I just hiss at them, and they scream. I don't know why they scream, but it's funny. And I know more about Cats than you, Billy Lacroix. So Removed it, buddy.

The school is good, but everyone doesn't have smart like me. I have a strong connection with cats and I feel as if I am the only other one who can. Meow.
