Soon there was a cat who was so energetic that she was bouncing. “Come play with me, Dog!!! We will have fun!!” Cat suggested.
Dog turned and looked and shook his head. “No! I will not play with a filthy cat,” Dog replied angrily.
Cat turned and walked away.
A month later Dog was hated. He didn’t do anything. Cat came by. She saw him. “You should have played with me, Dog. Then you wouldn’t have such a hard time and be alone!”
“Well, Cat, you’re right. I should have played with you,” Dog said sadly.
“Can you still play with me, Cat?” he asked. Cat nodded. They played every day.
