Arthur's Dreams
By Mary L. Bushong

1     Arthur was a black and white kitten. Not just any kitten, he dreamed of doing great things in the world when he grew up. He loved to sit on his cat perch and stare out the large living room window. As he stared, he would dream.
2     One day, he dreamed of being the only cat who could herd sheep. He would bite at their heels to make them go faster. He would chase them wherever the shepherd wanted them to go. Everyone would be amazed with the things he could do.
3     Arthur thought it would be great fun, until he imagined running through a mud puddle and getting his white socks dirty. That would not be nice. He gave his paws a quick wash to make himself feel better.
