Our hero, one Dewy C. McCray was an animal lover. His pet food company specialized in vegan food for cats.
Unfortunately, cats that don't eat meat grow blind. So Dewy began a subsidiary business, "Dewy's Seeing Eye Dogs for Blind Cats."
He hoped this would not only aid the blind, but promote interspecies harmony.
It was an unfortunate side effect that some of the dogs ate their charges. Revolutions are never without casualties.
The bloodlust of his hitherto furry friends embittered Dewy.
He changed his name to Kim, moved to Korea and opened a restaurant specializing in dog fricassee.
