Cats in the Mansion by Jemma

One Day there was a ragdoll cat named Rachel. She lived in a big mansion! Her owners were lovely and nice, but one day they got a male cat named Ben. He was a bengal cat. She does NOT like bengal cats! She hissed at him often and hid from him.

“Rachel, stop hiding! I won’t hurt you, I’m a nice cat!” he begged.

No more running, no more hiding.

“Sorry for the way I have treated you. I guess you’re worth a shot” Rachel apologised as she came out of hiding.

“Hey Rachel, can you hiss at me? I love the noise!” Ben asked.

“Umm, ok” she said suspiciously.

Rachel hissed and Ben acted hurt. He howled like a wolf and flopped like a fish out of water. It was a trick! Her owners came rushing out and said stuff she couldn’t understand. That was probably for the best. That’s when her owners picked her up and threw her out the door.

“Get out and never return!” they yelled at the same time.

They slammed the door shut. Without thinking twice Rachel ran to the closest forest she could find. Rachel entered the forest and looked around for a place to sleep, she found a rabbit burrow. She walked into the abandoned rabbit hole and made it into her own home.


A Few Months Later…


Rachel still lived in a rabbit burrow, but she had a kitten. It was a ragdoll cat like her called Clover. Rachel believed that Clover will grow up and help all the cats in need of help.


3 Years Later…


Clover could walk and talk now! She had a lovely fur coat and her coat was so fluffy!

“Mum, why did we ever end up in the forest?” Clover asked.

“Oh, it’s too terrible to be told!” Rachel said sadly.

“Please, I’m old enough to know!” Clover begged.

Rachel told Clover every single detail.

“Oh Mum! I’m so sorry!” Clover said, tearing up a bit.

“Mum, I am going to collect some berries,” Clover said.

“Ok, be careful! Be home soon!” Rachel said worried. You can never trust anyone in the forest.

Clover walked out of her burrow and started walking. When she finally got to the berry bush, she picked a lot of berries. Clover turned around and gasped. It was Ben!

“Rachel, is that you?” Ben asked.

“No, I’m her daughter,” Clover said.

“Can you take me to your mother, please?” Ben asked.

“NO, you have put my mother in enough stress!” Clover yelled.

“Take me to your mother now! It’s important!” Ben yelled back.

“What’s so important?” Clover asked suspiciously.

“I need to apologize for what I did,” Ben said sadly.

“It better not be a trick!” Clover said.

Clover and Ben walked to the burrow silently.

“Here it is, I will be watching!” Clover whispered.

Ben walked into the burrow and Rachel turned around and dropped her glass of water. There was lots of screaming and yelling.

“Rachel! Please stop, I’m here to apologize” Ben said.

“How do I know it’s not another trick?!” Rachel yelled.

“Because I didn’t know how much it would hurt. Someone did the same thing to me” Ben cried.

“Oh Ben, maybe we can go back to the mansion and make things right!” Rachel said putting her fist in the air.

“How?” Ben asked.

Rachel explained that they ring the doorbell and the owners will open it. The cat would be standing at the front door and he would hiss. After he hisses all of them will act hurt. The cat who hissed would be kicked out and the rest of them would go inside. 


A Few Hours Later…


The plan worked! The cat hissed and got kicked out. The rest of them were taken inside and they lived happily ever after.


The End.
