THE ADVENTURES OF ZOEY-PAWS SAWYER
"with a wink and a tail-wag to Mark Twain"
Once upon a time, in the 1800s, I lived in a little village called St. Petersburg,
in Missouri, on the banks of the Mississippi River.
My cousin was named MagCat Sawyer, and she was known to be the
village "bad cat". At times, I could be mischievous too.
Once when MagCat was especially naughty, our
Aunt PollyPurrs said she had to whitewash the fence as her punishment.
But instead, MagCat got together with her really wicked whiskered
friend, HuckFurrocious Finn. They stole an old dinghy and drifted away
down river in search of feline adventures.
I didn't want MagCat to be in more trouble whenever she came home,
so I went off to Aunt PollyPurrs house to whitewash her fence.
Purrhaps I got a bit carried away that day.
But then I am a colorful cat.
And I prefer a colorfully painted fence!
I do hope Aunt PollyPurrs won't punish me ...
