Supporters Only!
Creators: Deirdre / Wyld_Dandelyon (Writer)
Skycat was hungry, and it was all Alligator's fault, for having so very many hungry children. But can she trick Alligator into fishing for her?

This story or poem is for logged in supporters only! Here is a short excerpt to whet your appetite:

Skycat crept along the branch until she got close, then sat up, licking her paw. After cleaning her ears thoroughly, she said, "Hello, Alligator."

Alligator looked up. "Oh, hello Skycat."

"Nice day."

"Is it?" Alligator sighed.

"Is something wrong?"

"Oh, not really. I guess I'm just bored."

"You could go hunting."

"I'm not hungry. I'm just bored." She gazed at her children. "Want to play pounce?"

Now, Skycat loved a good game of pounce, but she knew better than to get within jaw's reach of Alligator. She yawned. "That sounds dull."

"So, you have a better idea?"

There had to be a way to trick Alligator to get her some food. So Skycat said, "Of course."
