“Koko, you did it again, another great meal. How do you manage to have such variety? You have nuts for the squirrels, greens for the bunnies, even something for Alex and me.”

“Ah, that’s simple, my little Mandy. I have a lot of helpers that gather things up. I still have a few bags of cat food that we rescued when that truck overturned. I heard later that no one was hurt. Thank goodness for that. Ok, let’s let the cleanup crew do their job. The rest of us can go into the great room.”

Everyone cleaned up their area and the cleanup crew took over and finished up, They then joined everyone else in the largest room in the cave. After everyone found their places, Koko motioned for silence.

“Ok everyone, we have some important business to discuss. Amanda and Alex want to travel out to the country but they have asked us if there are things to be careful or to watch out for.”

“Amanda, are you two going just out to the country or are you thinking of walking all the way to the big forest?”

“Well Toto, it is Toto isn’t it? It’s hard to tell you little squirrels apart. I for one would like to see the forest. How about you Alex?”

“Yes, I would also.”

“Amos?”

“There are some big (he tried to show how big, but his little paws just could not stretch that far), animals called deer. They aren’t mean, but they step on us little guys. That’s what happened to mommy. That’s why I live here now.”

“I’m sorry Amos. I didn’t mean to bring up bad memories.”

“It’s ok. I have big family now, don’t I Koko?”

“Yes Amos, you do. Amanda, Alex, I have to tell you there are some very mean animals that live in the big forest. To name a few, coyotes, wolves, and cougars.”

“Oh my. That actually sounds interesting.”

“Mandy, this is a long trip. I think we should rest up and leave bright and early.”

“Good point Alex.”

“Ok everyone, it’s bedtime.”

Amanda was so exited about the trip that she had a hard time getting to sleep. But soon she was in dreamland. She woke up to the smell of breakfast and some chattering that she could not quite understand but she thought she heard her name mentioned.

“Good morning Koko. I thought I heard you talking.”

“Hi Mandy. When he gets back here, I have someone for you to meet.”

“Sorry Koko, but when ya gotta go, you know what I mean. Hi Mandy! I haven’t seen you in a long time.”

“Aegis! What brings you to this side of the world?”

“Koko contacted me. She said you wanted me to watch over you two on your great trip.”

“Yes, I forgot I mentioned that. Thank you Koko.”

“You’re welcome Mandy. Now, I know you’re in a hurry to get going, but you are not going anywhere without breakfast. I’ll let you wake up Alex,”

Koko had another surprise for Amanda and Alex.

“Mandy, let me help you put this on.”

“What is it?”

“With a bit of help from the others, I made you each a little bag for food. When you get hungry, you can stop to eat and not worry about having to find something in the forest. All I ask is that you bring these back to me. They are yours, but by bringing them back, we know you made it safely.”

Yes, kitties can be embarrassed. Tune in later for the last part of this story.

  3. Speaking of deer – I just got back from deer country aka Wisconsin. My friend, Jeanne, feeds deer in her yard. They are beautiful to watch, but deadly on the road.
