Velvet the Scaredy Cat
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Velvet was a cat. Not just any cat. She was a black cat. She was black with white whiskers.
 
2     Velvet took naps outside. She liked to sleep under bushes.
 
3     She liked one bush best. She could look out. No one could see her.
 
4     It was the end of October. It was getting cold at night. It was still warm in the sun.
 
5     Velvet had been sleeping. She was warm and cozy. The sun was going down. Velvet woke up.
 
6     She flexed her paws. She yawned. She washed her face and paws.
 
7     Velvet purred. She was very happy. Then her purr stopped. She looked across the road.
 
8     What did Velvet see? She saw a large white sheet. It came flapping toward her.
 
9     Just then, Velvet heard her name called. Her eyes were very large. She jumped up. She ran to the house.
 
10     "What a good kitty," said Mom.
 
11     Velvet ran in. She sat under a chair.
