Hello. I’m Elijah would welcome to the sag foundation story-line. I’ll be reading a story today called me and my cat by Satoshi kit a Mura, both illustrated and written by. So let’s get into late one night, an old lady and appointed hat came in through my bedroom window. She brandished her broom at me and fired out. Some weren’t actually left without saying goodbye. Nicholas, wake up, you’ll be late for school. It must be mom. Must be morning again. Mom dragged me to the bathroom and made me Washington dress. Downstairs. She interrupted my breakfast. She was theories. She cared me off to catch the scope. I had gone. But I was still hear how strange I thought to myself, pulling my whiskers, whiskers, I rush to the bathroom and looked at myself in the mirror. Leonardo, my cat, was staring back at me. But it wasn’t him and sign. It was me, Nicholas. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I had turned into a cat. Don’t panic. I told myself, I sat in the armchair to consider the situation carefully. I fell asleep. When I woke up, I felt a little better. Maybe it wasn’t such a bad thing to be a cat. I didn’t have to go to school, did I? I hopped onto the table and from there to the top of the shambles. What fun, I could never do this before. I decided to leak toward the covered in the other side of the room. Ready Set. Oops. Mom threw me out of the house. While I was rambling in the garden. Giancana, the next door neighbor cat came up and licked me all over my face. Yuck. Time to go for a walk. I thought the brick wall was warm under my pause. As I got close to Ms. Thompson’s garden, thought occurred to me. Miss Thompson had given me Leonardo when he was a kid. Leonardo was Heloise, his son. Did that mean that Heloise was now my mother. Now. Hello, Mom. I call tentatively. She ignored me completely. Farther along, I came across three mean looking Katz Excuse me. May I go through I said No, go away. It’s our wall. Replied one. Well, I think the wall belongs to have but before I could finish my sentence, they were all over me. We punish THE slash one another. Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. Running Turnus. Curiously, the cats ran away in all directions. It was Bernard, Mr. stones dog. He’s a sweet dog, my favorite in the neighborhood. Thanks, Bernard came just in time. Chase me out of the Garden. Of course, he couldn’t recognize me. So this was the world that Leonardo lived in. Life was as tough and complicated as it was for humans. When I got home, I went into the house. Then I heard a scratching noise coming from the front door. It was me back from school trying to get into the cat flap. But was she me, Nicholas? Always He poor little Leonardo inside my body. Once it can behave strangely, scratched himself honestly, and when he was done, he challenged his shoes so they surrender. He liked to sweat a clean, then spent a long time sharpening his name. He found the goldfish particularly fascinating. He tried to sort the washer. I’m going to yarn. At last he gave up. He found the radiator and the litter box irresistible. But he didn’t. Like me. At last mom saw something was wrong with her son. She became so worried that she called the doctor and asked him to come at once. Nothing to worry about Sit Dr. wire is just a little over tired. Send him to bed early and it’ll be fine in the morning. Mom was still very upset. She held him tighten her arms all evening. I felt sorry for them both. I climbed on Leonardo in my shape and stroked his cheek. He heard than mom stroke me gently. I part. Later that night, the old lady and the pointed hat came in through my bedroom window. Sorry, Love, I got the wrong address. She said she brandished her broom and blurted out something. Then she left without saying goodnight. Nicholas, wake up, you’ll be late for school. I heard everything was back to normal. At score. Mr. Madoff sat on the table. He scratched himself, licked his shirt, and fell asleep for the rest of the lesson. Well, that’s the end of our story.
