Life as a stray cat is difficult. Much more than you think. The first night was the worst. I shivered all the time. I kept walking, until I was too tired. Than, I lay down in a corner and fell asleep.
The same happened during the second, third and forth day too. But, each time I got hungrier and thirstier. On the fifth day, I could barely walk. My head ached and my stomach hurt. Suddenly, I heard a bark behind me. I could barely move my head to see who it was, but I knew it was a dog. And dogs are bad. Very bad.
I started running. I ran as fast as I could. The dog ran after me. As he got closer and closer, I realized that I have no chance.
Suddenly, the dog howled from pain. I saw him running away, bleeding. I looked to see who bit him, and then I saw a huge cat. He was about three times bigger from a normal cat. His fur was orange, long and curly.
"Thanks" I said.
"I always help fellow cats" the cat said.
"Are you hungry and thirsty?" He asked.
"Oh yes!" I said happily.
"So follow me kitty".
We walked for about ten minutes. I told him my story, about my mother's owners and about Maria.
"You have an interesting story, but what's your name kitty?"
"Fiona. What's yours?"
"Fang. That's because I have sharp fangs. See?" He opened his mouth to show me his fangs. They were indeed very sharp.
"Why's your name Fiona?"
"I don't know. That's what Maria decided to call me".
"Look kitty. We're stray cats. We do what we want. We don't listen to those humans. All they do is bad things. They ruined the whole world. Stray cats complain about it all the time."
"But not all of them are bad".
"Trust me. All of the are".
We walked quietly for a few minutes, until we reached a certain cave. Fang got in and I followed him.
"Hey guys. I brought a new member to the group".
I walked in and saw two cats. One was white, with red scary eyes. The second was a mix of colors. He was yellow, brown and black. I noticed that he was extremely thin, and I could just see all if his bones.
"Guys, meet Fiona. Fiona, meet Bone and Snow".
"Hello kitty" said the thin cat, who was supposedly Bone.
"Hi Fiona" said the other, Snow.
"Guys, Fiona here is very thirsty and hungry. I hope that you left her something to eat.
"Course we did" said Bone. He threw me some meat and showed me the place where they drink from.
"Thanks" I said as I ate the meat. "Isn't that water dirty and very unhealthy?"
"Course it is kitty, but do you have any other ideas from where to drink?"
After that, I ate and drank quietly. I then went to sleep, on the hard rocks and sand.
I dreamt about being with Maria again and having a perfect time, until Maria's father started shouting at us.
I woke up in the morning, to hear the other cats talking about me. I kept my eyes closed is they don't know I'm awake.
"I think she's cute" I heard Fang say.
"Cute?" It was a voice that I barely heated. It was Snow.
"Not in that way" Fang said angrily.
"I thing she's annoying. We help her, and she complains!" That was definitely Bone.
"She's just not used to living in the street" Snow said.
"What do you think about her?" Asked Bone.
"I don't think she's too bad" said Snow.
And then, I yawned and stretched my legs.
"Good morning kitty" said Bone.
"Good morning guys" I said.
"Bon appétits Fiona" said Snow.
I ate pretty much the same as I did the last time. I ate meat and drank firstly and unhealthy water.
"Where did you get these?" I asked.
"Humans" replied Fang.
"You got it from garbage cans?" I asked.
"Of course not! Do we look to you like cats who eat junk?" Bone asked.
"We stole it directly from their plates" said Fang.
"Are you sarcastic?"
"Nope, I'm not".
"Isn't it a bit like, evil?"
"Do we look to you like evil cats?" Asked Bone.
"Of course she doesn't think that" said Snow.
"After all they've done to us, it's ok to be mean to them" said Fang.
