Short story alert:
Once upon a time there was a cute and kind of 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 were born in Devonshire, England. Devon would roam around the barn where they lived. One day Devon was pouncing around in the hay inside the barn and she heard this loud noise. It scared her. The noise sounded like “Naaaayy”. Devon crawled slowly over to where the noise was coming from so she could see what it was. Once she got close enough, she stopped in her tracks and looked up with her big blue eyes and saw this big 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 every day. Devon would pounce around in the hay and climb the walls of the barn and the horse would watch her play. They became the best of friends. THE END!
