13. Chapter Thirteen

As I'm waking up the next morning, I feel like I've hardly slept. This is my third day in Catnep city and I honestly don't know how long that is in human time but I feel exhausted. Vixen and I were up until quite late last night looking after all of the tiny kittens from the alley. They were really scared and wanted to be held and cuddled all night. Vixen told me they are only about five weeks old and should really have still been with their mother. Well now Vixen is the mother as she told the police that she will keep them and look after them.
As I sit up on the sofa bed I can hear voices coming from the kitchen, they are talking quite low so I can't quite make out what it is they're saying. I get up and look out of the window and am taken by surprise. Outside Vixens house is a beautiful carriage with four white horses. It looks stunning.
I walk out of the living room and head into Vixens kitchen. Vixen is sitting at her kitchen table with two serious looking cats all suited and booted.

"Oh Celeste" vixen says worriedly. "These are two of Queen Sox's guards, they are here from the palace, I'm afraid there is a small problem, you see the Queen she has summoned you to go to her palace at once"
"What" I cry "I I'm not in any trouble am I?"
"Perish the thought m'dear" says one of the guards "Allow me to introduce myself my name is David, chief guard to Queen Sox" he says shaking my hand
"So what's going on?" I ask him nervously
"Well it's her majesty miss, she wishes to speak with you, your not in any trouble infact on the contrary she's quite impressed with what the other cat have been saying about you"
I'm rather shocked.
"Go get yourself ready miss we'll be leaving shortly" David says to me
I go and get ready I change into my clothes which vixen has already washed for me and I have a quick wash in her bathroom and then I'm ready to go. As i step outside vixens house the carriage takes my breath away, it is just beautiful. David opens the carriage door
"After you Miss" he says politely.
I step into the carriage and sit down, it's pretty plush and comfortable really. Then I feel a jolt as the horses lead the carriage away.
As we're going through Catnep city I'm watching all the places I've visited since I've been here, we've just left the town centre, it looks really bright and pretty today. I didn't realise how rickety these horse and carriages were. They look so glamourous when you see them on the street but I have to admit I'm starting to feel a little bit sick. 'I hope it isn't much further' I think to myself quietly. We're going across a bridge and I think we're crossing the river that I saw yesterday.  I can see what looks like a castle up on the hill, I wonder if that's the Queens palace. I start imagining all of the wonderful things which must be inside the palace when I'm jolted into reality when I notice we've stopped at a big gate. As it opens we go in, and we're pulling up on a courtyard.

"Here we are Miss, Follow me" David says to me.
As I step out of the carriage I glance up at the palace, well it's more of a castle. It looks magnificent. It looks a bit like the big one in Disneyland.  It's a pink castle with old looking windows which all have little window boxes filled with beautifully coloured flowers. Upon the roof is a flag with a picture of Queen Sox. As I look around the courtyard I can see a glorious fountain with a statue of a cat dancing with fish and there are hundreds of butterflies flying around and you can hear birds singing in the trees. It is a really beautiful place. David leads me through the main door into a grand entrance hall. on the walls are portraits of Queen Sox and in front of us is a lovely sweeping staircase. David leads me up the stairs and along a long light and airy corridor. We come to a old fashioned wooden door.

"This is where you'll stay for today Miss" "The Queen will meet with you shortly for breakfast, go please make yourself at home" then he closes the door.
As I look around I feel as though I'm in a princesses room, the room is painted in a subtle shade of pink. There is a four poster bed with pink curtains, two small sofas and a coffee table. Wait what's that on the table. It looks like a note;

From The Desk Of H.R.H Socksy Malone

Dear Miss Celeste

My sincere apologies for interrupting your trip here, I asked to see you immediately.
Please do not be afraid, you are in no trouble.
I do hope you are enjoying your stay in my kingdom of Catnep.
On the coffee table please find a selection of cakes, buns, rolls, sweets and a few chocolates
please do help yourself. I have taken the liberty of having maid draw for you a bath, your bathroom
is through the door on the right.
You have everything you need for a comfortable stay. I look forward to your company
at breakfast.

Enjoy  

Sox

Aww, isn't that sweet of her to write me a note. I spot the plate of goodies next to the note. I recognise the little cakes on the table as Rosebuds from the market. Rosebuds cakes really are the best ever! mmmm delicious! The icing has strawberry flavouring, its really good. I pour myself a cup of tea from the prettiest teapot I've ever seen it's stunning it's a light pink with delicate little white blossom flowers painted onto it. I enjoy the tea and a few more cakes before going to enjoy my bath.
As I walk into the bathroom it's just as pretty as the bedroom, it's quite big for a bathroom. The walls are stone walls painted white. there are three old castle windows which overlook the gardens. In the middle of the room is a very large white roll top bath. I've never seen one of these for real. The bath is filled with white bubbles which look like clouds. I think I'm going to like this place.
