The Grey Cat that Wouldn't
|This is Millie, my grey cat that won't.|
She was a jumpy cat, she'd not had the best start in life, so when she first came to live with her people she didn't trust them.
She hid under a bookcase for a week.
She was very frightened.
But the people coaxed her out with food, little treats, and soft voices.
As time went on she began to trust her people. They fed her, she was warm, she had her own bed.
She liked their strokes and their love.
And things settled down and she had a happy life.
But then something happened. A mangy cat visited.
He threw his stinky scent everywhere and ate all of her food.
Her people didn't like that, so they changed her cat door to one that beeped.
The mangy cat didn't like that, and couldn't get in.
But the grey cat was afraid of the beep.
She didn't want to come in through her door any more.
At first it didn't matter, her people had their back door open all the time as the weather was warm.
But then it got colder.
Grey cat didn't want to stay in the house any more.
There was no way out except through the beepy door.
Her people would open their door and call her in. But then they would close their door.
This frightened grey cat, she was trapped.
But she wanted food.
Grey cat stayed close and her people offered her treats again to try to encourage her back in and to feel safe again.
But grey cat didn't like the beep.
Grey cat didn't trust her people.
Grey cat didn't want to come in.
Grey cat would rather stay outside in the cold than come back into the warm, safe house.
Because of a beep.
Her people didn't know what to do.
Her people were very sad.
But grey cat just wouldn't
If any one has any suggestions to help with this problem, please let me know, I really want my cat to come in and it's getting too cold to keep the back door open all the time.
