Simba and the Mouse
By Joyce Furstenau

1     "Eeeeeek!" screamed Melissa.  "A mouse in the house! Eeeeek!"
2     "Where?" answered Matt calmly.  "Where is the mouse?"
3     "Over there!" said Melissa in a trembling voice.  "It went behind the TV next to the fireplace! Do something, quick!"
4     Matt walked over to the cold fireplace and looked behind the television.  He could not see a mouse.  He looked all around the fireplace. He could not see anything.
5     "I can't see it now," he said calmly.  "It must have gone into the wall."
6     "Well, DO SOMETHING!" shouted Melissa, still shaken.  "I don't want to sleep in this house tonight knowing there is a mouse in the house!"
7     "All right," said Matt.  "I'll go get a mousetrap and see what we come up with in the morning, but," he said thinking out loud, "I wonder if we could bring Simba inside for a while and see if she can catch it."
8     Melissa thought about this for a minute and then shook her head. "No, I don't think you should bring in the cat.  She is not used to being inside the house and she could get scared and hide somewhere.  Let's just get a mousetrap," she said.
