Silently, the door swung open and in inched the beast. Sleek, elegant and agile, she stalked across the floor, eyes on her prey. Size didn’t matter to her, he was sleeping and unaware, or so she thought. One more step and she would be within striking distance. Wriggling, she prepared to pounce. This time she would be successful!
In a flash, he was awake! A loud hiss and a cuff from his paw and she’s put back in her place. Sulking, back to the hall to plan again, maybe next time! After all she was a kitten with great ambition!
