Once upon a time, the sun came up and it was a bright blue day, and puffy white clouds were floating in the sky. And kids were playing in a big green field at the park. Some were swinging and some were doing monkey bars, and some fell off and some stayed on. Well, that blue morning a little grey cat was climbing up a tree. While he was climbing up the tree, a dog started to bark at him and a squirrel followed him up. When the dog stopped barking, the cat went down and got some food. Then he took a little nap. Then he went down the tree and went for a walk. When he looked behind him, he didn’t see his house. He realized he was lost. He said to himself, “Why not go to the beach? They might find me there.” He thought it wasn’t that far because he had gone in the car, but now he had to go on foot. So, he looked at the familiar green hills and started to walk up them. They were so hard to climb, but in the car they had seemed effortless. He realized he was a small little cat and he wasn’t that fast of foot. He said to himself, "Maybe I'll rest on this tree and play for a while.” So he dangled his front paws over the tree and swung himself back and forth. He almost fell when suddenly something caught him. He stepped on it and thought it must have been another tree branch but it was actually the very special cloud who was interested in this little cat. She watched every little step he took … she watched him in the tree, climbing the mountains, every little step he took. The cat walked on until he found the nice beach he was looking for. The cat dug a little cave in the sand and the cloud followed him inside. She said hello but the cat couldn’t hear her airy voice, because of course she was a cloud who lived in the air. Then the cat jumped at what he saw … a little puffy cloud speaking to him with big blue eyes and big bushy lips. When he saw the cloud, he was surprised because he thought the air would only keep him up, not down. He carefully said, “What are you doing down here?” The cloud said, “I saw you watching the kids playing, climbing up the mountains and I followed you everywhere you went. And I knew you needed some company so I couldn’t wait for you to stop so I could talk to you.” They talked for a while until a little girl came to the beach. The cat cried, “My little girl’s back!” He ran over to her and she stroked him on the head. They went back home in the car and he was happy she came for him. He climbed back up in his tree and he said to the cloud, “Good-bye, I will see you tomorrow.” And that’s how the cloud and the little grey kitten met.
