She was named Little because of her low-key existence. Like most cats, in her free time she loved to sleep. But this story plot is not so relaxed and boring because this cat is totally different. The story takes place one day, Little cat is sleeping away. Suddenly she has a feeling of awareness, something is not normal. There is a strange smell, a strange voice, as if from a distant place an announcement. An announcement? Announcing what? She looks at the time. It is still morning, not even 3am, everything is black and dark, everyone should all still be in the land of dreams. She goes out through the window and into the dark street. A taxi goes by and disappears. She feels very alone very small. Especially small. She continues straight ahead still listening to the small small voice. She goes past the place the young people play basketball, happy nobody is there because she is afraid she will be captured in the same way her little brother was. She goes past the swimming pool and feels nervous as she still can’t swim. One day she will definitely learn and hopefully control some of her anxiety. Next to the swimming pool is the place the kids like to play football, that’s right, this community really cares about health and everybody wants to stay healthy. No wonder many people travel here. The small voice is continuously present but on arriving at the school it becomes more intense. Little cat enters a classroom. Everywhere is calm and peaceful. All she can see is bright colour, everything has colour like it is very busy. On the wall is a paper with the day after tomorrow’s menu, it seems everything is light and fresh. She smiles, eating like this will have a good effect on the children’s ability to learn well. That’s very good. And when big won’t even need medicine! At the back of the classroom is a big door. Painted on it is a sunny and cloudy scene. She feels the voice closer and closer and slowly opens the door. Suddenly… To be continued...
