Journal,

We just finished watching Iron Man, which is the first movie Horgan has ever let us watch that doesn’t star Garfield. For a human, Robert Downey Jr. is quite talented. His engineering skills surpass even those of the craftiest spy cat.

The movie itself was okay, except for some parts of it which I had a hard time believing. How can a man, even one wrapped in a metal suit, fall from the sky, land on the street, and survive?

If he were a cat, it would make more sense.

I said to Horgan, “You know what the world needs? Iron Cat.”

What he showed me next pretty much destroyed my faith in the ability of our government to keep secrets. I have serious doubts about my identity as a secret agent cat.

Because Iron Cat is real. These pictures and videos can only be explained by a long-standing secret feline weapons development program, going on under our very whiskers all this time. I can only hope that Iron Cat, wherever he is, is on our side.

Mad Cat

An obviously early prototype. Notice the lack of complete body armor, and primitive weapons systems.

Mech Cat

An improvement over the first design. Presumably has a quadrupedal mode as well, or else is hopelessly anthropocentric. Lasers, if functional, are really cool. Must ask Horgan for lasers.

Iron Cat in action

Somewhere there is a city in peril, and a giant robot cat is coming to save it. Or destroy it. I’m not exactly sure which.

The future of Iron Cat

A futuristic design, no doubt one of the planned final stages of the program. Armor and weapons are apparently now merged with biological constructs. Brilliant and terrifying.

I asked Horgan for a suit of armor for Christmas. He said he’d think about it.
