The Black Cat. The first thing the narrator tells us is that he doesn't "expect" us to believe the story he's about to write, or ask us to believe it (1). He says he'd have to be crazy to think we'll believe him – he can hardly believe it himself.

Cat Burglar Black has a style most often found in European comics. The pen and watercolor pictures are graceful and the occasional wordless pages are beautifully composed to convey K's tension or emotion.

The story reads like a Tintin/Oliver Twist hybrid and is mostly successful/5(9). Brief Summary of “The Black Cat”. From his prison cell, the anonymous protagonist writes his story of brutality.

The narrator is drunk, and this makes his life fall apart; the more he drinks the more brutal deeds he makes. First, he cuts his cat, Pluto’ s eye out with a knife, then hangs Pluto a tree.

The narrator of "The Black Cat" first becomes annoyed when Pluto "inflicted a slight wound upon [the] hand with his teeth." After he is bitten by the cat, the narrator cuts out its eye. Poe relates "eyes" and "teeth" in their single capacity to take in or to incorporate objects.
