ihtas become too hot to do a lot of things nowadays
we mostly just sit around the floor and pretend the floor was much colder than it is
this as you might understand is not the most pleasant way to spend on es time
no wonder they dcall it the dog days of summer because the dogs can sure have it as Far as i'm concerned
so to pass the time the other cat and I tell stories
this is thestory of abbie the trickster and the pie
a long timeago there lived a cat named abbie
he was knowna as abbie the trickster because he liked to playtricks on people
and other cats
you could be walking downt he street one day with a roll of bread
and you would notice something on the road ahead like maybe a stick
"now this is not right" you would say because you have to remove the sticks from the road or someone minght step on it and hurt their foot
but when you put the roll of bread down and get the stick, abbie the trickster would show up and say "i have Played an important trick on you and now your bread is mine"
as you can see hthis fellow is wily and sneaky andvery creative in his trickery
one day when abbie was out and about as they say in other lands
he came acaross a pie high up on the sill
it was so high that he could not jump up and get it
and it smelled very delicious so of course he needed to get it
another cat came walking by at that point and did not notice the pie
"hey look" said Abbie thet rickster "there is pie up there on the sill, let's get it down so we can eat it"
and the other cat sniffed and said "you are far mistaken mr abbie because I do not like pie and in fact i hate pie"
well this was serious because honestly who among us does NOt like tasty pie
abbie said "well that is most fortunate for you because look there is a pie up there and if you hate it then you should hit it and knock it over and ruin it"
the other cat thtought this over completely and for a long time and then said "that is a good idea and I know I am a very good jumper"
so she jumped once and twice and then after three times she jumped up high enough to hit the pie
it came acrashing down onto the floor and fell apart
"hooray said abbie now we can eat the pie
no said the other cat first we must ruin it by stepping all over it and dancing
thsi is where the story ends for now beacuse I got mad at the other cat and had to bite her shoudler
she always messes up my stories
whoever heard of someone dancing on a pie
this is the stupidest suggestion i ever heard
that is the last time i let her even open her yap when i'm telling the story
she ruined my story about abbie the cat who went to the moon because she wanted there to be pirates on the moon
i figure you gotta be on thin ice after making a sugestion like that
and now she doesn't have any more ice to be on
and tha tis a probelm because right now we could use all the ice we can get
