Sunlight glistened on the forest floor. The sweet song of birds filled the area. It was clearly a beautiful day.
Suddenly, an orange blur dashed through the woods. It was a cat. The cat was racing towards the human´s place. He was clearly running for something.
As the cat reached a large gray house, he stopped at the door and meowed. A tall human opened the door. The orange cat walked in. “ Welcome home, Skipper. “ The human murmured.
Skipper meowed, “ Aw..It's good to be back..”. Skipper walked away from his human to his yellow bed. “ I'm exhausted! “ Eyes peered from a distance. Just as Skipper was getting comfy a voice scared him and made him jump. “ Skipper? Is that you? “.
Skipper´s eyes flashed towards the meow. “ Of course, you big lug! Come over here! “ He purred. A large, fat black and white cat stumbled over to Skipper. “ Oh! I'm so glad you're back, Skippie! “ The cat mewed, excitement shining in his eyes.
“ You know I hate being called that, Smokey. “ Skipper sighed. Smokey made a weird face. “ Sorry..”. A ringing sound burst through the house. “ Hope it's not the vet.” Smokey muttered to Skipper. Skipper made a frown as the human yelled at the phone.
As the human continued yelling into the phone, Skipper and Smokey realized something was wrong. “ This is the second bankrupt this week! I need more time! “ The human yelled. “ M-money? “ Skipper thought. The human sighed, “ I need more time...Please. “ Smokey padded over to the human and rubbed against him. Skipper flattened his ears and did the same.
The human put up the phone and frowned. The two cats were purring and rubbing their faces on him. “ Thank you, two. “ The human made a tiny smile. Skipper purred with delight. “ At least he was feeling a bit better. “ Skipper thought.
The human walked away for a second and then came back with a red handkerchief and a purple collar. “ I was going to save this for you two on your birthdays, but I think you deserve these now. “ The human said, while putting them on Skipper and Smokey. “ Wowee! A new collar! “ Smokey purred. Skipper looked down at his handkerchief. “ Hmm..This looks nice. “ Skipper mewed.
The human looked at the clock on the wall and gasped, “ 2:00?! I gotta go! “ He rushed out the door carrying nothing, but the clothes on his back. “ Bye, owner!! “ Smokey chirped. “ Bye. “ Skipper meowed.
