Under the Stairs by Jonathan Wainwright

Boris, the stunningly attractive, yet neurotic, Persian blue cat, was luxuriating. As the whip cracked above him, he went completely unnoticed. 

There was something voyeuristically pleasurable to Boris about the painful ritual of ‘Correction’ and other sordid goings-on in Miss Svetlana’s well-equipped Dungeon. And he wondered why powerful humans had such a need for humiliation? 

Boris had strong opinions about this. But until today, he could never tell his story. 

Now, everything’s changed. A language ‘App’, sponsored by ‘WWF’, can effectively translate ‘Cat’ into ‘Human’. 

What a delight. What a joy. What absolute trouble I can cause, purred Boris majestically!
