The Mouse and The Cheese
Cheddar woke up to the sound of the vacuum cleaner going past his little hole in the wall.
“Oh, bust my cheese! Can’t a mouse get any sleep without one of the human contraptions!” he said with a loud but tiny yawn.
He strolled over to his matchbox sized fridge and saw he was all out of cheese.
“Oh, bust my mozzarella why can’t I have just a relaxin’ Sunday without having to do a run to the human fridge,” he squeaked.
He looked out of his hole, seeing a cat snuggled up in a ball by the fireplace.
” Great another obstacle in my way!” said the mouse with fuming anger.
After much consideration he decided to sneak past the cat. His little feet pit pattered across the fuzzy, pale, blue carpet and he discovered no humans in sight. What A RELIEF!
As he crept by the cat, the beast yawned and turned its head around and slept once again.
The fridge was only five mouse bodies away! The cheese was beginning to sound more inviting to Cheddar than ever as his tongue salivated at the thought of it in his mouth.
He ran up to the fridge and pushed it sorta open with his strong feet. There was the cheese, sitting on the second shelf right next to the eggs. He leaped up, grabbed a piece, and closed the fridge.
In front of him was the CAT; LARGE, GREAT, and BEASTLY! His eyes were a fiery green and his whiskers were long and white.
“Nice kitty,” said Cheddar running off with his cheese towards the hole.
The cat almost pounced on him twice but did not succeed.
FINALLY! He was in his hole, panting with excitement and sheer exhaustion.
The cat stayed outside guarding but he would not harm Cheddar.
The mouse cried licking his furry lips, “BUST MY PEPPER JACK, THIS IS THE BEST CHEESE EVER ON THE WHOLE UNIVERSE OF MICE!”
