It was raining outside. Drizzling, actually, just a steady, soft pattering of raindrops as they fell. Margaret sighed happily. No school and a library book all about cats. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Margaret fixed herself a sandwich then draped herself sideways across the big blue armchair. She leaned back to set her lunch on the end table and then reached up to flick on the reading light.
Then, settling herself comfortably, she began to read.
As she turned the pages, Margaret slowly became aware of the purring of her own cat, Ozmo. She couldn't see him right away, but he was obviously somewhere in the room.
"Ah, there you are!", Margaret smiled at Ozmo.
The rain beat gently against the window. A very soothing sound. And there was something... something about that soft purr... the bright eyes..... that gently flicking tail......
"You know", she said to herself, (YAWN..... excuse me)" ......sometimes.... cats seem..... to have..... an almost... hypnotic.... quality about them, don't th.......z...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"
Margaret awoke a short time later with Ozmo curled comfortably on her tummy. She yawned and stretched. "Up you go, Ozmo", she said, "I'm hungry. I'm going to eat my sandwich now".
Just like magic, Ozmo disappeared.
Margaret sat up and reached for her sandwich.
It was gone.
There was nothing left of her lunch but a couple of crumbs and a tiny little cat footprint.
You felonious little furball!
"Where's my LUNCH!?"
But Ozmo was nowhere to be found.
Margaret looked under couches.
She looked under chairs.
She looked in the closets.
She looked under the stairs.
But Margaret had the funniest feeling that Ozmo was right there.
"Hmmmph!", thought Margaret. Ozmo is so good at this disappearing stuff, he ought to have his own magic act. That way he could amaze people on stage.
People would come to the show to watch him disappear, just like the Cheshire cat in "Alice in Wonderland".
"Poof!", there's nothing left but the grin."
Margaret snorted. "I know why cats grin", she thought. "They're grinning because they think it's funny watching people trying to find them."
Margeret looked behind the draperies.
"You know, that magic act is not a bad idea", she thought to herself, as she got down on her knees to peer under the couch. "I can see it now....."
The Incredible Ozmo, performing Cat Magic
So much for daydreams.
Still no Ozmo.
Margaret stood up and looked about the room. Putting her hands on her hips she shouted really loudly.
Where ARE you?
You better have a
for what happened to my
There was total silence.
There was only one place left to look.
One last closet.
As she got closer to the door, Margaret could swear she heard little cat giggling sounds.
Ozmo's eyes darted this way and that.
Could he escape?
Ozmo gave Margaret what he hoped was his most sincere expression.
THE DOG DID IT.
"OZMO!", said Margaret, suddenly starting to laugh.
We don't HAVE a dog!
Thats right! The cat can talk
Pretty lame. right?

Once upon a time God said to Noah, "It's gonna' rain, so get all the animals you can and put them in a boat." The neighbors said it was impossible, and they were right. But Noah did it anyway, just to prove those neighbors wrong. And when it rained, those neighbors didn't have a boat and they drowned, as they deserved to because they liked eating apples. But Noah and his animal friends stayed dry and warm on their boat for a very lucky 13 months . Then they got out and repopulated the earth. How did they do that? I'll tell you when you're older.

I'd probably just read you what I read my son:
The Very Hungry Catapillar
Each Peach, Pear, Plum
and Moon in my Room (which you will love as much as he does because it has a moon that lights up on the cover!)
