9. Chapter Nine

It's a beautiful day here today. Back at home in the human world it was October so was quite chilly but here it's surprisingly warm. It's a bit like Spring you know when you don't need a coat just a thick jumper to go out in. Most of the houses have window boxes full of flowers in bloom and there are flower displays on nearly every street. I'm walking around in amazement. This all still feels like such a dream. But wait, where am I? Where's Jasmine? Oh no I'm lost. I look around and I can't see Jasmine anywhere, in fact I don't recognise any of these cats. Where have I gone? How did I loose jasmine? What am I going to do? Oh no…

I come to a river, I sit down on the grass gazing into the water. I can't believe I'm lost. I feel so lost and alone. I put my head into my knees and cry. I can't stop crying I don't know where I am and how I got here, Oh I'm so silly I should have paid more attention to Jasmine and where she was going. I might never see Jasmine again.

"Hey hey what's all this? Don't cry" Comes a deep voice.
I look round to find a big handsome cat looking at me, a very large cat I must say, a very fluffy, tabby.
"Oh" I say startled, "Please don't hurt me"
The big cat looks stunned. "Hurt you, Me, no way perish the thought." "Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Billy the Maine Coon."
"Oh right, well hello Billy, nice to meet you" I say wiping the tears from my face.
"Why are you upset? What's happened?" Billy says
"I'm lost I was walking with Jasmine and and I must have got lost or or something or distracted because now I'm here and I don't know where I am" I manage to mutter between sniffs and sobs.
"Well hey don't worry about it, I'll stay with you and protect you until we can find Jasmine" Billy says putting his paw around me and giving me a big hug.
There is something warming about Billy, like he really cares.
"Here you go dry your eyes" Billy says handing me a tissue. "It's clean"
"Thankyou I say blowing my nose and drying my eyes.
After a few moments I'm feeling better,
"your new around here aren't you kid" Billy Enquires
"Me, yes I'm just visiting, Jasmine brought me here form the human world"
"Ah right" Billy Exclaims. "Me and Teddles we live in the human world, we come down here every day or so just to hang out."
"Teddles" I ask.
The river looks really lovely, it's very clean and you can see right to the bottom. As you gaze down you can see different fish swimming around. There are a few cats in the water trying to catch the fish with their paws. I watch them in amusement. There is a big fluffy ginger cat in the lake. trying to catch some fish. He looks a bit silly.
"You see that big ginger cat in the water" Billy says pointing a paw
"I was just watching him what is he doing?"
"That's him thats my brother Teddles, he's a bit silly at times, he comes down here every now and then and has never managed to catch a fish."
I look on in amazement, Teddles is still splashing around the lake without catching any fish.
"But I didn't think you was allowed to hurt any other animal?" I ask, "Are you allowed to fish?"
"Your quite right" Billy answers "We cannot hurt the fish but we're allowed to play with them, any that we catch we must release unharmed back into the water, although there are a few bad apples that have eaten fish sometimes."
"and what happened to then" I ask
"Well most of them have been lucky, got away with it, but some aren't so lucky and they're in the Queens kitty Klink"
"Klink?" "what's Klink?" I ask Billy
"It's kitty jail, here we call it kitty Klink, it's where all convicted cats go"
This Queen sure does sound strict with her rules, a bit like our headmistress I imagine. I look around at the riverside, further up there are two cats in the shallow water wearing swimming costumes. On the riverbank are a class of kittens in swimming costumes and armbands, all too scared to step paw into the water. They all look petrified.
"Come along kittens it's quite safe, nothing bad will happen" one of the cats calls out to them.
Among the kittens I spy Hattie, one of Vixens kittens. She's wearing a frilly pink swimming costume and orange armbands. I watch as she bravely steps forward, puts one paw in the water and quickly jumps back behind her classmates. It's quite funny to watch, as I look across quite a few cats are now in the river. Some are trying to catch the fish, there is a group of cats playing with a ball in the river, throwing it to one another. Then I spot a few small boats with cats sitting in. Just happily floating by. It looks really peaceful.
Next to me Billy has curled up for a snooze, and Teddles is still desperately trying to catch a fish, he still hasn't had any luck.
"CELESTE" a loud call comes out, waking Billy from his catnap.
it's Jasmine, she's coming bounding over to me.
"Oh Celeste I've been looking everywhere for you"
"I'm so sorry Jasmine" "I don't know how I got here, I don't know where I am"
"Oh my dear" Jasmine says in her whispy voice "your not far, look over there is the village"
Billy has now sat up straight and looking directly at Jasmine.
"I saw her alone and thought I should stay with her" He says proudly.
"Oh thank you so much Billy, You really are a good boy"
"Say are you heading down to the Disco tonight?, we've got a big night planned, I'm DJ-ING we've got kittyoke and a special guest performance"
"Oh it sounds great fun, we'll be there Billy"
a Disco? a real kitty disco, now I've heard everything.
