Charlie ShortTail has a scary encounter with “the Horrid Creature”.
I was out for a nice, relaxing evening stroll and then I saw it, the horrid creature.🙀
It was smelly, hairy and it had slobber drooling from it’s mouth.
I cringed, drew back and felt the fur on my back rise and bristle. My tiny (but very cute) tail bushed up in fear.
It was the man next door!
I ran quickly to hide under the bushes. Lando was nowhere to be seen. He’s supposed to be on guard.
The creature’s big feet thumped along the path to Mama’s house; the man rang the door bell. What could he want? I hoped I could sneak into the shadows and climb over the wall to safety. With a swift jump I was gone! I couldn’t risk him seeing me. What if he tried to touch me?
The creature spoke in a loud, deep voice but I couldn’t understand what the man was saying.
It got worse, the ‘Dad’ opened the door and let the horrid creature into Mama’s house.
The creatures clothes were tatty, dirty, smelly and oily. He had huge, scary boots. What could he possibly want?
I leapt quickly over the side roof, and ran along the hedges to the back garden to warn Lando.
This was a disaster. When would it be safe to go home?
Mama came into the garden and called us. “Charlie”, “Lando” she called; we crept out of the thick bushes with trepidation.
“What is wrong?” She asked. We looked towards the house…. Mama knows we are scared of him.
Oh! Him, he has just bought some eggs for us … “come in you two”.
I let Mama carry me, and Lando walked close to Mama.
Always trust your instincts me and Lando think. We don’t trust him….What do you think?

Charlie ShortTails’s brother ‘Lando Enzo’
This is my very special brother ‘Lando Enzo’.
He is older than me and a clever cat. Lando is a tabby with spots that turn into stripes.
Lando loves to patrol the garden and no other cats are allowed into our patch.
He thinks he is special forces cat with ninja skills! He practises with his favourite toy smelly mouse.
Lando likes to stage watch from the window seat; this is also next to the radiator!
Lando is a very neat cat and is never seen with a muddy paw or face.

Introducing Mz. Chaos
Chaos is a little tortoiseshell cat. She is gentle and loving and likes nothing better than a big cuddle up with her small human brother.
Mz. Chaos has to have a special diet because she is allergic to many things and her Mama spent a lot of time researching and reading up on how to help with her problems.
She cannot eat foods with grains in, and she is also allergic to flea bites (flea allergy dermatitis), so she becomes itchy and scratches a lot.
When she is bad she can have loss of fur and many lumps.
She left her old home because she was unhappy and adopted her new Mama and brother.
She is now much loved and cared for and her allergies are under control.
Her only bad habits are sneaking inside beds and drooling!
