Man, do I have a problem.
Iím a small, soft, furry, cuddly orange striped cat with a white tip at the very end
of my tail. I live in a comfortable home with my people. Iím allowed to sit on anything, go anywhere in the house, and my people donít even fuss at me when I kick litter on the floor when I go to potty.
In the living room of my house there is a very tall open cabinet that houses the
television, the VCR, and many, many books. It also houses my problem. You see, on the very top of that cabinet sits a vase of brightly colored flowers. I want to smell those flowers in the worse kind of a way. But how to get there is my pressing problem.
If I want to get up there to smell those flowers, itís going to take some very careful planning. If I try to jump from the right side, I might bump a dining room chair. If I could jump from the center, I might bump the flower vase, and that just wouldnít do. No, I think I might jump from the left, or maybe from an angle.
Gracious! If I keep pacing back and forth trying to make up my mind I just might get dizzy. I donít know why I have such a hard time making up my mind. After all, I have nine lives, and havenít even started to use them yet. Guess I had better just make the leap, and hope for the best.
Whoopee, I made it. That was quite a jump for a little kitten like me, but nothing
ventured, nothing gained.
Hey, look, thereís the vase. Now I can smell those flowers, and then my problemís solved. What, no smell? Who ever heard of flowers with no smell? Bending over for another whiff, my nose got too close, and I suddenly realized
the flowers were silk. All that careful planning, and I didnít even get a smell.
Uh. oh, now Iíve done it. Everything, flowers, vase, and all, just fell to the floor. The rug must have saved the vase because it didnít break. Just look at those flowers, though. All scattered over the floor. Oh well. At least they werenít real, and had no water in them. That would really have made a mess.
I guess Iíd better jump down. Iíll have to take my scolding like the lady I am. Iíll not make any promises not to get on top of that cabinet, though, because now that I know I can get there, I think Iíll nap up there. Then when my people look for me they wonít be able to find me
