Short story alert:

Once upon a time, there was a cute, short cat with big eyes, curly fur, and long ears. Her name was Devon. You see, her mother named her Devon because long ago, one of their grandparents was born in Devonshire, England. Devon would roam around the barn where they lived. One day, while pouncing around in the hay inside the barn, Devon heard a loud noise that scared her. The noise sounded like “Naaaayy”. Devon crawled slowly over to where the noise was coming from to see what it was. Once she got close enough, she stopped in her tracks, looked up with big blue eyes, and saw a giant, beautiful horse. Devon just sat there looking at the horse, and the horse was watching Devon too. The horse finally said, “Hello” to Devon, and Devon said, “Hi there, horsie.” Devon would visit the horse daily. She would pounce in the hay and climb the barn walls, and the horse would watch her play. They became the best of friends. THE END!
