A tenderhearted man with a life-long love of animals begins to neglect, and even misuse, the domestic pets his wife has collected for his pleasure. Eventually, even his favourite, a large and beautiful black cat named Pluto is not immune to his masterâ??s maltreatment.

A pioneer of the short story genre, Edgar Allan Poeâ??s stories typically captured themes of the macabre and included elements of the mysterious. His better-known stories include â??The Fall of the House of Usherâ?, â??The Pit and the Pendulumâ?, â??The Murders in the Rue Morgueâ?, â??The Masque of the Red Deathâ? and â??The Tell-Tale Heartâ?.
