12. Chapter Twelve

This kitty disco is so much fun, Vixen has come back to join us after resettling her kittens and and making sure Smokey was safely at home with the babysitter. Billy has started DJ-ing again and we've just watched the dancing competition, which Vixen entered and lost. It was good fun to watch though, whoever thought cats could be such good dancers. The two that won were a couple who did the Tango. They were very good in fact. There are a lot more cats in here now and it's got very busy. Everyone is whispering about who the special guest appearance is. There is a lot of rumours flying around all these names and I haven't heard of any of them. The music fades and stops. Billy is back on the stage with his microphone.
"Right then, are you all having fun?" he shouts
"MEEEOOOOOW, YEEEAAAAH" the audience roar.
"Right well now we're going to have some more fun because it's time to welcome our very special guest. Kitties and cats please welcome MISS TAIL MEOW"
wow it's miss tail meow, we saw her at her concert last night she's brilliant. Everyone is cheering. Miss Tail meow arrives on the stage carried by six dancer cats, she's wearing a long yellow dress which sparkles as the lights catch it. Her hair is really flowy tonight a bit like Marilyn Monroes. Jasmine told me that you never get a good look at Miss tail meows face, she's always wearing big hats or covering her face. I noticed it at the concert last night but when I did catch a glimpse of her face she looked like a very pretty cat. Tonight she is hiding her face behind a masquerade mask.
 Miss Tail Meow sings for about forty minutes, she sings some more of her hits, some I remembered from the concert plus a few different ones, "call me kitty" ,"its me or the catnip", "meowing" as she leaves the stage everyone cheers and claps and Billy turns the music back on, most of the cats take to the dance floor. Jasmine gets up for a dance. I'm off to find a toilet.

Why is there no human sized toilet around here, I'm walking along a small corridor behind the disco hall, I open a door in the hope of finding a human sized toilet. I open the door and come face to face with Miss Tail Meow who lets out a shriek.
"I'm so sorry" I say I was just looking for a toilet.
"sssh come on in" Tail Meow says ushering me in. "There's a human toilet over there behind that door"
"Thankyou I say" hurrying off to the toilet.
When I step back out Tail Meow is sitting on a sofa.
"Why don't you join me for a while" she asks
"Ok if you don't mind"
"I'd be glad of the company" she says smiling "you have no idea how lonely it gets being famous"
"Really?" I ask "But I'd have thought you'd have lot's of friends and people around you"
"Not real friends, just ones who want to be somebody" Tail meow explains "noone really cares about me, not really"
I sense a touch of sadness in her face. Which actually does look a bit odd now I come to look at it.
"What about you, I don't see many humans around here" she says to me smiling
"I don't live here, I'm just visiting for a while" I explain to her
"I see"
As tail meow moves her leg and crosses it over her other one I notice something slightly odd about her, the more I look at her, she seems different to the other cats. There definitely is something not quite right about this kitty. Ah ha I think I've got it.
"Wait a minute" I say suspiciously "Your not really a cat are you?"
"WHAT?" Tail meow says sounding shocked, "Of course I'm a cat what are you talking about"
"But your so different to the others, your quite a bit bigger for a start"
"yes well we're all different" She says turning her head away from me
Then something catches my eye, her tail, it most definitely isn't a cats tail.
I gasp as I realise what it is.
"Your, YOUR A DOG" I say loudly
"Yes ok I'm a dog ok are you happy, but you can't tell anyone, if they found out I'd be finished, ruined"
"But why pretend to be a cat?" I ask.
"Everyone laughed at me when I was singing as a dog, nobody took me seriously so I thought if I disguised myself as a cat people would accept me" Tail meow is saying walking over to her dressing table.
"So who are you really?" I ask her "I won't tell anyone I promise."
"very well" tail meow says.
She takes off a mask to reveal her face, takes off her yellow dress and underneath is a cat shaped suit, she unzips it and steps out.
"This is the real me, Phoenix, the labrador puppy. She says tail wagging.
"Your, your a puppy? Wait your not the missing puppy are you?"
"thats right thats me the puppy, see now you understand"
I give Phoenix a hug and tell her that her secret is safe with me. Then I leave her in her room to get dressed up as a cat again for her exit. I'm somewhat flabbergasted so all of this Miss Tail Meow has been a dog the whole time. That the missing puppy who they suspected had hidden in Catnep city had and was all the time Miss Tail Meow. Wow this is big. But i'm not going to say a word to anyone. I promised Phoenix I'd keep her secret and I will.
As I head back into the disco I find Jasmine on the dance floor.
"I thought you'd got lost" she says giggling
"I was talking to another cat" I say joining in the dancing.

The kitty disco closes at 11pm in Catnep city and we slowly all start to leave the building, outside the air is fresh and a bit cooler to what it was earlier. Me, Jasmine and Vixen all walk back quietly through the city centre. It's a really different place at night, it's actually a bit scary. Next to the fountain two cats are having a bit of a cat fight.

"Don't worry Celeste" Jasmine says to me "It's just a little cat fight, quite common nothing to be worried about"
We carry on walking through the town centre when a big brown tabby cat walks towards us
"Vixen, jasmine" He calls out
"Ah Ben how are you doing?" Jasmine asks
"You ladies shouldn't be walking home alone at this time of night please allow me to escort you home, who's your friend"
"This is Celeste" Vixen answers "She's staying with me for a bit, she's visiting from the human world"
"Why how lovely to meet you Celeste, My names Ben, they call me Big Ben around here but please call me Ben"
I shake Bens paw, he's a real charmer
"Celeste you saw Ben last night, he's the leader of the downtown batboys who was fighting with Mr Tibbs crew, don't be afraid he looks after all of us here" Vixen says reassuringly

Now I remember Big Ben, he actually is a very nice cat. We're walking slowly out of the city centre and we're walking along a quiet backstreet not too far from where Vixen lives. Ben stops suddenly in front of us.
"Wait don't go any further" He whispers to us
"Ben what is it?" Jasmine asks him looking a bit worried
"I heard something I didn't like the sound of" Ben whispers

Vixen and Jasmine are standing right next to me, I have to admit I am a little bit scared by this but I feel quite safe having Big Ben with us. Big Ben sneaks quietly ahead of us and he's laying low by the side of a dark alleyway. We watch as he peeks his head round. He spots something then quickly runs back to us.
"Ladies you see those bushes over there, go hide behind them until I say it's safe to come out, do either of you have a phone on you?"
"Oh yes I have my new mepaw phone" Vixen says rummaging in her pawbag
"Good, once you get behind those bushes call the kitty police" Big Ben says "Go go now"

Jasmine, Vixen and I are hidden behind the bushes, we're watching Big Ben stalk out the alley. Vixen pulls her mepaw out of her paw bag and dials the kitty police
"They're on their way" She says.
We watch as Big Ben is still watching something in the alley, he's got right down on the floor almost on his belly, he's looking as if he's about to pounce on his prey, you know like when you watch those wildlife shows with lions hunting, that's what he looks like. Then all of a sudden he springs into action with a big
"Meeeeeeoooooowwwwwwwweee" it was the longest most aggressive meow I've ever heard. We can hear a fight going on, I really hope Big Ben will be ok. In the distance we can hear the sirens of the kitty police approaching, two police cars whizz past us with their lights on followed by a van. As they all pull up besides the alley the police cats surround the alley. It's like something off of the tv this is. The cat fight is still going on, there's lot's of screams and screeches. Then it quietens down. It sounds as though the kitty police have intervened. A small group of police cats emerge from the alley with a very big cat in paw cuffs. Wait wait a minute that that isn't a cat.
Jasmine gasps
"Oh my gosh it's a fox" she says sounding really shocked
"A fox in Catnep City, but how" Vixen says.
"Why would a fox come into our quiet city, there's nothing here for them nothing" Jasmine is shrieking
"Oh no where's Ben?" Vixen says sounded panicked
We all look around nervously and notice that Big Ben is nowhere to be seen, we slowly creep out from behind the bushes, the police cats have the fox securely in their police van but still we can't see Big Ben. As we get to the dark alley we still can't see or hear Big Ben.
"Oh no he's been killed I know he has" Jasmine shrieks.
We stand there silently just waiting for one of the police cats to tell us the bad news, I can't help it but tears are rolling down my cheek. A small police cat approaches us she's a small ginger tabby
"Ladies did you see anything that went on here?" she asks holding a notepad and pen
"No Big Ben told us to go hide, Vixen was the one who called you" Jasmine answers
"It's a good job you did miss or this could've been a whole lot worse"
"Where, where's Big Ben?" I ask the police cat "Is he ok?"
"He's perfectly fine, infact he's a hero" The Policecat says to me

It isn't long before we see Big Ben walking slowly out of the alley holding a cardboard box, he slowly walks over to us
"Vixen" He calls
Vixen walks over to Big Ben and the both look in the box
"It's it's kittens" Vixen shouts "Oh the poor little darlings they must have been abandoned"
"I think you'd better take them" Big Ben says handing Vixen the box
Vixen walks over to us carrying the box
"Look you two look, kittens" She says happily
As we gaze into the box inside are five tiny adorable kittens looking up at us all looking petrified.
"This is what the fox was after" Says Vixen

Big Ben walks us back to Vixens house then he takes Jasmine home. Inside me and Vixen are looking after the tiny kittens. Vixens given them a little bath each and now she's making them some warm milk and pouring it into little bottles. They are so tiny, I can't believe they was almost killed tonight. It's terrible. the police cats were right Big Ben is a hero.
