The Tailless Cat Series

The Tale of the Tailless Cat

Melody needed a home.

She picked the cute yellow house on the corner.

The lady fed her and groomed her.

Melody slept outside.  She hated the thunderstorms.

The lady let Melody in to dry off, but she still slept outside.

One day, the mean old cat walked Melody to the street.


It scared the lady so much, that Melody got to sleep inside that night.

A few years have passed, and Melody still gets to sleep inside.

The Tailless Cat Moves

Melody loves the yellow house.

The sun shines through the big windows for her.

The lady has a new friend, the gentleman.

Melody loves him just as much as she loves the lady.

One day, the lady and gentleman started packing.  Boxes filled the house.

Melody thought all the boxes were for her.

Then, one day the boxes were gone.  Melody got packed too!

Melody was scared.  The yellow house was getting smaller.

The lady and gentleman finally took Melody into a new house, a white house.

The house was empty.  What was this place?

Then all the boxes came back.  And the lady and the gentleman unpacked.

Melody started to like the white house, especially the bigger windows.

The Tailless Cat Gets a Baby Brother

Melody loves her routine.  She eats breakfast, basks in the sun, and naps.

She loved the lady, and  the gentleman.  They loved her.

One day the lady and the gentleman left the white house.  Where did they go?

Melody missed the lady and the gentleman.  She hoped they would return.

Then one day Melody heard the lady and the gentleman.  But something was different.

They brought a baby with them!

Melody thought the baby looked and smelled weird.  Where is his fur?

Melody was scared of the baby.  He made lots of noise, and the lady and the gentleman seemed to love him more.

This made Melody sad.  She wanted attention too.  What should she do?

Melody decided to take a chance.  The lady was holding the baby, but her lap was free.

Melody jumped up and brushed the lady’s hand.  The lady smiled.

The lady still loves Melody!  Melody was very happy.  She loved the lady and the gentleman.

And the baby.
