Original Scenario made by SteveDuck
Your cat has been missing for a week. One day you hear a sound from your basement similar to mews of pain but different. you enter the basement to find a cait sith with your cats colourings who appeared to be praying, she is yet to notice you. Between the aforementioned sounds and sobs you can hear her say "Bastet...(unintelligible)... Cursed...(unintelligible)... Master will never love...(unintelligible)... In this form...(unintelligible)...never have his kittens...(unintelligible)" she is yet to notice you.
What do you do?
"Hey, have you seen Jasper?"
"Yeah, she's on the rooftop."
I go to the rooftop, where I find Jasper the cat yowling at the full moon. Ah, I hadn't realized it was the full moon. "Jasper, for the last time you are not a werewolf."
Jasper turns to look at me for a moment before she turns right back towards the full moon and lets out a more exaggerated yowl. I can only sigh before I climb back down the ladder and head back to my basement, where the cait sith named Tom (she was male before her transformation) is still praying.
"Okay, Tom? We need to have a talk."
"Can it wait? I'm kind of in the middle of a prayer."
"Ugh, fine. I'll be in the living room when you're done."
With that I head into the living room and collapse on the couch. Between Jasper still yowling her head off and Tom still lost in her mournful prayer, there's very little silence. When it's clear that Tom's not going to be finished anytime soon, I go outside and fill the wooden tub with water before putting down the special shampoo I bought. Almost the instant I put in the water there's a loud splash as Jasper leaps from the top of the house all the way to the water, spraying me with water and scaring me out of my skin. "Mother of GOD!"
I think it's my imagination, but Jasper seems to snicker before swimming around the bath. Jasper is perhaps the only cat I know that absolutely loves water. I ultimately sigh before gently removing her from the bath and petting her back.
"Well!? I'm here!"
Ugh, Tom. This is going to be tough, so I take a deep breath before I go back inside. "Sorry, Jasper's yowling at the moon again."
"What did you want to talk about?"
Yep, that's Tom alright. No one matters but her. I roll my eyes while thinking about how to approach this situation. "Alright, now I know we've only known each other for a few days. Your master didn't take well to you becoming a cait sith, I got it. But as you should realize by now, your stress is causing you to shed and it's setting off my asthma."
To my surprise Tom gives me a look of shock and distraught. "You . . . you're asking me to leave? B-but wh-what about Jasper!? I-I mean, she's a cat and only having one of us would make your asthma better, right?"
"Jasper's got senority rights over you, and she holds a special place in my heart. Secondly -"
"But it's not fair! Why does everyone -"
"SECONDLY I AM NOT ASKING YOU TO LEAVE!"
To my relief she shuts up, breathing a huge sigh of relief. I try to take a huge sigh of relief as well, but unfortunately for me it's hard because she's setting off my asthma. "Now, the reason I can live with Jasper is because I can use a special trick so she doesn't set me off. Now with your permission, I would like to use this trick with you."
". . . very well, I will permit you to use this trick of yours upon me."
It's not long before I'm leading her outside. "Now, first I have to blindfold you."
"I will permit it."
Oh thank goodness. It's not long before I'm leading her towards the wooden tub full of water. But just as I'm about to lift her up and shove her in she decides to sneak a peak, and within seconds I'm forced to wrestle her to the ground to stop her from fleeing.
"NO I WON'T TAKE A BATH ANYTHING BUT THAT! YOU CAN'T MAKE ME TAKE A BATH I WILL NOT PERMIT IT WHAT GOOD WOULD THAT DO!?"
"Jasper can stay around me because I use a special shampoo on her that stops her dander from triggering my asthma! If you want to stay then you have to take a bath at least once every four weeks!"
"ONCE EVERY FOUR WEEKS!? Forget it! I'll find someone else to take care of me! UNHAND ME!"
At this point I've nearly got her in, but she's standing on the tub and is refusing to move her legs to let me push her in. I try to assure her that it'll be over quickly, but she refuses to believe me, acting like I'm trying to force her into the bowels of hell. It's a long and hard battle, and when she manages to nail me in the crotch with her scepter (GOD I wish I had told her to set that down before I tried this) I can't help but let go as I fall to my knees. The irate Tom is standing there with her paws on her hips, her legs spread out so she can't fall in the tub as she huffs at me.
"That is only the beginning of your pain! How dare you try to make me take a bath, knave! The consequences of your actions shall be severe! By the time I'm done with you-!?"
A large blur shoots down from the rooftop, slamming into Tom with such force that Tom's finally forced down into the tub. While she screams bloody murder and tries to leave the tub, a second cait sith pins her down and struggles to hold her still. "The shampoo, get the shampoo ready!"
In spite of my shock that Jasper's now a cait sith, I'm quick to get the shampoo ready and it's not long before I'm thoroughly rubbing it into Tom's fur, in spite of her protests. "Nice timing, Jasper."
"Thank you, master!"
"WHEN I GET OUT OF HERE YOU TWO ARE IN SUCH DEEP SHIT THAT THE SMELL WILL NEVER GO AWAY!"
"Shut UP Tom!"
As the two of them start arguing with each other I keep rubbing in the shampoo. I'm very relieved that Jasper at least is reasonable. "It's just WATER Tom! Calm down!"
"HOW DARE YOU TELL ME TO CALM DOWN YOU NEWLYMADE CAIT SITH!? YOU SHOULD BE PUT TO DEATH FOR HELPING HIM DO THIS TO ME YOU TRAITOR TO ALL CATS! I'VE HAD ENOUGH! I'D RATHER GO BACK TO MY OLD MASTER AND FACE HIM THAN GO THROUGH THIS EVERY FOUR WEEKS!"
"Don't you realize why we're doing this!?"
"BECAUSE YOU ALL WANT TO SEE ME MISERABLE, I GOT IT!"
"You IDIOT! He's doing this so you don't HAVE to leave!"
"HE'S ALREADY SAID THAT BUT I'VE SAID I'M GOING! SO STOP!"
"Don't you get what that means!? HE WANTS YOU TO STAY! And the fact that he's still doing it after you HIT HIM IN THE CROTCH should tell you how much he cares about you!"
Just as I finish rinsing out the last of the shampoo Tom finally manages to work her way loose, throwing Jasper off of her and very nearly hitting me with her scepter again before leaping out of the wooden tub. There is little time to react before she grabs me by the neck and gives me a look of sheer rage, before storming off towards my front door. As Jasper and I get our breath back we hear the front door slam shut.
I just sigh as I sit on the ground, breathing heavily. "You'd think we were bathing her in lava or something."
"Uh huh. What a nut. Anyways, my turn?"
I chuckle as Jasper and I tip over the wooden tub and begin refilling it with clean water. As I begin giving Jasper her bath we have a small conversation. "So why is it that even after she's always so mean to you and nailed you in the crotch with her staff that you still were determined to get her in the tub?" "Because I've spoken to her old master since she came here. If she tries to go back to him, he'd kill her. He's one of those freaking nuts of the Order. Besides, here she changed what she was for her old master and he completely and utterly rejected her. I can understand that she's going through a rough time. If I hadn't nearly died earlier today due to an asthma attack, I probably wouldn't have forced her to have the bath tonight."
"You really are an amazing master."
While I blush, I immediately flinch when Jasper changes tracks. "By the way, in your face! I turned into a cait sith in the full moon! I'm totally a werehuman, you were wrong!"
"A were - you are not a werewolf OR a werehuman!"
The two of us jokingly bicker about it back and forth as I dry her off. While she notes that I didn't dry off Tom, I am aware of that and I know Tom's probably going to dry herself off. Eventually we go back inside, with Jasper rubbing up against my side. "So what next, master?"
"I need some sleep. I'll try to patch things up with Tom in the morning."
We walk past the basement door, where Tom has slept for the last two days. But when I get to my bedroom Jasper and I are surprised to find Tom sitting on my bed. Upon my questioning gaze she blushes and averts her gaze. "It's chilly. Your bed is warm. That's the only reason I'm doing this."
"I'm actually going to sleep right now s-"
"Well I'm not stopping you!"
With that she lies down looking the other way. Jasper and I grin as we also get on the bed, with Jasper - not realizing her size difference - lying down on top of me. While heavier than before, she's still light enough that it doesn't stop me from breathing, and my response is to wrap an arm around her. To my surprise Tom then forces her way into my other arm, not even bothering to make an excuse this time. I don't tease her about it, and instead go to sleep with a smile on my face.
