The Calli Cat
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     I am Calli. I am a cat. I am a calico cat. That means I am a cat of many colors. I am black, brown, white, and orange.
 
2     I have a family. We have a house. There is no yard. There is a little place outside with a rail. My humans put plants out there.
 
3     I like to sit in a window. I like to be up high. I like to look down on the trees.
 
4     My family has been talking. They are going to move. It seems to make them happy.
 
5     Boxes are being filled. I love boxes. I like to play in boxes. I like to sleep in boxes. I jump into a box. One of my humans comes. They drop in some catnip. I love catnip. I purr and roll in the box.
 
6     The top of the box is closed. "Meow! I am here. What are you doing?" The box is lifted. I am afraid. I lie flat in the box.
 
7     There is a lot of noise. There is rumbling. I am moving downward. Then I feel the box being carried outside. There is wind coming in the top. After a long time the box stops. The top is opened.
 
8     "Meow?" I ask. My eyes are wild. I am picked up. My human mom holds me close.
 
9     "There you are, Calli," she said. "This is our new home. We even have a nice yard. We are getting a puppy. You can have a friend."
