TIPTOE THE WATCH CAT by P.S. Joshi
“Now this is living the life of Riley,” thought Tiptoe as he rolled onto his back and stretched.
He was enjoying his daily nap. This siesta lasted from just after breakjast until lunch, and again from lunch until dinner. In-between, he was the best watch cat in town.
“Was that a disturbance?” he mumbled.
He went to look out the large living room window.
“Sure enough, there’s Dipsie the hound from next door. What’s he doing? Why the nerve of him, burying a bone right in Flo, my owner’s, front yard. It’s time for action.”
With the stealth he was famous for, Tiptoe crept out the cat door.
The next thing Dipsie knew, he had several pounds of furry, fighting cat on his back, clawing and howling.
“The heck with the bone,” thought Dipsie. He started running, yelping as he went.
Old Mr. Pinkney, Dipsie’s owner, came running with a broom. He swipped and missed.
