In the heart of London, Frank was lying on his little cushion thinking about how great it will be if he and his brother Gorge get adopted. Frank thought about all the freedom they will both have. But there was one thing that Frank was worried about; being separated from Gorge. Some of Frank’s siblings were already adopted, the others got sick and lost their lives. While Frank was thinking, his eyes started filling with water. He was very sad and scared of his future.
The very next morning, Frank was woken up by the sound of Gorge meowing (or more like screaming). Thinking that Gorge usually never screams, Frank started looking around for Gorge when he saw a gray fluffy ball flying down.
“God blimey, that water was freezing!” Gorge finally blurted out after a long silence.
“Did you take a shower?" said Frank.
“Yeah, I’ll tell you what, never trust that shopkeeper when he gives you treats,” said Gorge.
Before Frank could say anything else, a small family came into the pet store. There was a very tall father, a beautiful mother, and two lovely girls.
“That cat looks so fat and that one looks like one of those fluffy key chains,” laughed the elder sister. “Oh don’t say that Nancy, it will hurt their feelings. Cats have emotions, they can understand what we are saying,” said the younger sister, Vancy. But what Vancy said was not correct. Frank was staring at them with curiosity.
Mr. Wilson, the father, talked to the shopkeeper for a few minutes. Frank knew that he will get adopted, because the family was not paying any attention to Gorge, this means that Gorge will not get adopted. Frank tried telling them by moving his paws, running here and there, and even meowed. But still the family didn’t pay attention to Gorge. And so the family brought Frank.
When Frank finally arrived at the Wilsons’ house after the dizzy ride, Frank saw that the house was neat, clean, and had everything that Frank wanted. The only thing that was missing was Gorge. Frank found a cozy place to sit. Vancy came along and sat next to Frank, then she started petting him. Vancy’s hand was so gentle that Frank quickly fell asleep.
After one month, Frank totally forgot about Gorge. Every day, He would just eat, sleep, and play. When the children would go to school and the parents would go to work, Frank would just play with all his hanging toys. Sometimes Frank felt a little lonely and a picture of Gorge came into his head even though Frank had nearly forgotten about him.
One evening, the Wilsons came back and immediately went for dinner. Frank heard a walking sound. He got scared and went to the closest hiding place he could find. When he heard the footsteps getting closer, he ran for his life. He jumped here and there and even knocked down some glasses. Finally, he found a place to hide in properly. He saw a cabinet open, squeezed in, and closed the cabinet’s door......
What is that creature that is trying to scare Frank? Will the Wilsons come back on time to help him get out of the danger? Please finish the story in the comments below.
