Cat Sitting

I was cat sitting in Brooklyn for my good friends. Only I was cat sitting a tiger and I accidentally let it get out. As I sat by idly, debating whether to call 311 or 911, and thinking about how mad my friends were going to be if the tiger wound up getting shot on behalf of my negligence, I saw it rush someone’s small dog. And then I realized there was a family with small children near it as well. Then I woke up.
