The New Cat in Town

Midge and Booker-T strolled along the sidewalk going to Jake's house. They had planned to meet this morning and go to the park for a little swim in the pond. They entered the yard and Midge called out to Jake.
Hey Jake!” called Midge. “Where are you? Jake!”
Jake came walking around the house from the back yard. “I'm here in the back yard.”
Are you ready to go to the park?” asked Booker-T.
We want to visit Sylvester and Jenny,” smiled Midge.
They will be happy to see you,” said Jake.
It's warm today and we can go for little swim in the pond too,” said Midge.

Midge Helps New Friend

The three friends walked through the parking lot of the school on their way to Midge's place. As they passed the brick wall in front of the school, Midge heard a little voice.
Help me will you?” said someone.
Midge stopped walking and stood a moment listening.
What are you doing?” asked Booker-T when he stopped walking. “I thought you were thirsty?”
I am,” said Midge. “Did you hear someone talking?”
I didn't hear anyone,” said Booker-T. “Did you hear anyone Jake?”
I didn't hear anything either,” agreed Jake. “Maybe you are hearing things.”

Search for a Swamp

Hey Booker-T!” called Midge as she came through the gate at his house. “Where are you?”
Hi Midge,” greeted Booker-T as he came out of the house through the little doggie door in the back door. “I was going to come to your house to see Snappy.”
We can go back to visit Snappy before we go to Jake's house if you want,” said Midge.
Okay,” agreed Booker-T. “Lets go.”
The two ran to Midge's place and into the house. They hurried across the kitchen to the living room where Snappy was sitting on the little bridge in his tank talking to Sammy and Jimmy.
Booker-T leaped into the chair beside the tank and then up on the top of the tank. “Hi Snappy,” said Booker-T.

Midge Tells Snappy About the Slide

Hi Snappy,” said Midge as she jumped into the chair next to his tank.
Good morning Midge,” said Snappy. “You were outside last night.”
Yes,” said Midge. “I was with Booker-T and Jake.”
Does our owner know you were outside last night?” asked Snappy.
No,” said Midge. “She was sleeping when I went outside. But she is okay if I go outside.”
Okay,” said Snappy. “I was worried about you in the dark.”
Thanks Snappy,” smiled Midge. “That's nice of you. I used to worry about you out there at the pond in the night all alone. I am happy you now have this nice new home and don't have to be out there alone.”

Riding the Slide

Midge lay awake at the foot of her owner's bed waiting for her to fall asleep. It seemed like a long time before she finally was fast asleep. Midge quietly left the room and went to the kitchen where she pushed her way through the doggie door and walked around the the front porch to wait for Jake. When she approached the porch, she found Booker-T sitting on the bench.
Hi Booker-T,” smiled Midge. “Are you ready to try and sneak into the park?”
I saw someone walking around over there at the park,” said Booker-T.
Are you sure?” asked Midge, quickly turning around to look across the street. “Where was he?”
