If the dark Count had a cat it would be sleek and slim not fat. Its coat of rich obsidian silk would shine from drinking blood not milk. And if that parasite of people had instead a hound - the beast would feast on human flesh it dug out of the ground. But what if Nosferatu nurtured rabid owls and bats - and fed to them a daily diet of screeching, wriggling rats. But wait, perhaps he'd have a hawk but it's too hard to tell - what vampires do domesticate as household pets in hell. And then I heard a whispered word from the lips of the un-dead - the carnivore he most adores is the fox of blood-rush red.
