Smokey could see that the Mayor was EXTREMELY skeptical. Every kitty knew how the Trouties felt about ‘burds’ and meeee-ow the way it was going Smokey could understand it! The ‘burds’ flying around were really scary. It looked like some kind of scary movie that their mom watched.
“Well you goofy kitty,” the lion growled. “What are you going to do? Are you going to settle down?”
“Don’t youz call me a goofy kitty you shaggy cat!” he yowled. “You not only shaggy but youz has bad breath!”
That’s it, Smokey thought, he’s gonna throw us off and we’re going to die. But the lion did something unexpected. He started doing one of those growl/laughs that shook the ground. After he did that, he turned and they kept going. Smokey wondered, again, how far they’d have to go. However, conveniently enough, all (if you pardon the human expression) hell started to break loose.
Smokey didn’t remember all of it bepaws it all came in one big rush. The ‘burds’ that the Mayor and even the other Trouties complained about at first started dropping rocks. Some swooped in and Smokey saw the humans. There were more than what she imagined but the animals took care of that!
