Memeng the publishing cat is a long time fan of Mr Whiptail. In fact, he could see himself playing one of the roles.

William wasn’t very good at cooking and so he had just gone to the larder
to get a piece of his favourite cheese when he noticed two enormous eyes
peering through his front door which he had foolishly left open. The eyes
belonged to the village cat Jaspurr who, up until that moment, William had
never had any trouble with. William could feel the hairs rise on the back of his neck, nervous about what was going to happen next. He wondered if his little hairy legs were
going to hold him up for much longer.
“Leave me alone Jaspurr, go and find your own food!” William said, trying
to sound tough, but his voice was a giveaway as it showed signs of a slight
“Why?” asked Jaspurr.
“Because it’s not fair picking on someone that is so much smaller than
you. And anyway your humans give you plenty of food.”
