Pet Adoption Day
(Yawn) Hmm? Hey, what”s going on? Who is this strange human that”s picking me up, waking me from a warm, sweet nap?. Put me back with my mother and my brothers! Easy…easy… watch out for my tail.. Okay, I”ve landed in a soft spot. In fact, this human is soft all over, and it has a soft voice, too. Gee, it almost sounds like my mother”s purring. Well, that”s nice. I”m being stroked behind my ear… I feel like… like I might… might fall asleep…
Ooooh, a good stretch feels so good after a nap. It must be time to eat. Or time to play with my brothers. Hey! Where are they? And where”s my mother? I don”t know this place. Oh, here”s that nice soft human again.
“Take me home! Can”t you understand me? Take me home!” Darn, it doesn”t seem to understand Feline. Maybe my family”s around here somewhere.
Oh, there”s a bowl of milk. I”d better hurry before my brothers show up and take it all. Hmm, nobody else is coming to eat. All this is for me? I don”t have to share? Maybe this place isn”t so bad after all. There”s the bed I was sleeping in, and there are some neat toys. Where”d the human go? I”ll try calling it.
“Come play with me!” Hey, here it comes – that was easy. I bet I could get it to do almost anything I want.
Oh, I know what this is! I heard my mother telling some of my brothers about it. What was that word? Pit. Pot. Pat. Pet. That”s it, pet! Gee, I didn”t know it would be my turn so soon. I”m a little young, but I guess I can handle having a pet.
