The Cat Relaxed

The cat purred and scratched. The cat yawned and stretched. The cat relaxed! The cat twitched his ear - something was very near. Something in the house, perhaps it was a mouse? The cat opened up one eye. He gave a little sigh. Something scuttled by. The cat licked his paw. Looked at his claw.  Slowly washed his face. Which wasn`t a disgrace! Stretched a leg and licked...
