Life in a doublewide



Looking out  my window in the mobile home was fun but frustrating. I needed to figure out how to escape and explore outside. All the squirrels, birds and lizards were having such a good time and I needed to go out to play with them.
Every day after Robbie and Bill left for work I would try to find a way to sneak out of my new home. A few days after we moved in Bill left a porch window open. This was my chance!
The next day, after Robbie and Bill left for work, I slipped out of the open window. My little adventure began. I was scared but excited at the same time.
I walked down the road and met Mrs. Smith. She was a very nice silver haired lady with a soft voice and a big smile. She petted me but told me I shouldn't have been out. She said I was obviously an indoor kitty and that I should go home. I wasn't ready to go home! I was having too much of a good time.
I walked on down the road and  met a very tall majestic-looking white heron. She must have been afraid of me because she flew off before we could get to know each other.
Then I spotted a squirrel. I hate squirrels because they like to tease and taunt me. I crouched down and slowly stalked him. I got to within  a few feet of him when he saw me out of the corner of his eye. He started to run! I did my best to catch up to him but he was too fast for me. He scurried up a tree, turned, looked down and laughed at me. Then he bounded across a couple more oak trees and he was gone.
I was exhausted! I walked home, ignoring lots of lizards along the way. When I got back it was all I could do to jump back in the
opened window.  I was so happy to lie down on my blanket and take a long nap.

When Bill came home he discovered the open window and closed and locked it. I had a really great time but a really big adventure for Robbie, Bill and me was about to begin!
