When Lucky was a young cat, she was beautiful with snow white fur. She had one blue eye and one green eye. She was indeed a lovely kitten and Tom and his family loved her very much. What a lucky cat she was.
Time passed by and soon Lucky was an old cat. She was not young enough to catch mice anymore. She spent much of her day sleeping in the sunshine. When her 10th birthday came, there was no party for her, no gifts or cans of fish. Lucky was very upset.
After her birthday, the family put Lucky in a box and drove her away. They abandoned her on the side of the road on a freezing cold day. That night, she wandered along the road side. She saw an empty box and curled up inside to try to keep warm.
She felt as if she would die as she was exhausted, hungry and extremely cold. Suddenly, a homeless black cat appeared and took Lucky to “Abandoned Town” --- a dark, dirty place filled with old broken furniture, boxes, quilts and other rubbish…
Lucky was shocked. She saw many other stray cats lying around the filthy conditions moaning and crying with pain. The black cat told Lucky that at least 10 cats were abandoned by their owners each month and many made their way to “Abandoned Town”.
Most were old and many were sick and suffering from skin diseases. They were not able to take care of themselves.
“Could you join us and help find food and water for our cats who are seriously ill?” asked the black cat. “I hate all those owners who abandoned us. Of course, I will do my best to help all of you,” said Lucky. “Thanks, my friend,” said the black cat.
“What’s your name?” said the black cat. “My name is Lucky!” Lucky said. “Lucky, what we really need is drugs for the seriously ill cats. Maybe you can help us.” Lucky said, “When I was ill, my owner took me to a vet. I will try to find the drugs.”
Lucky discovered a drugstore that supplied drugs to many vets in the area, and later that night she whisked into the drugstore and stole lots of the drugs needed for the sick cats of ‘Abandoned Town”.
What a welcome surprise for those sick cats. Soon, with the treatment of the drugs, the sick cats recovered. The stray cats realized that they could not trust human anymore. There was no true love in human world. Human were selfish and irresponsible.
All the stray cats worked together to build a clean big town. There were no fights, no hate or no abandonment but full of true love in the town now.1 / 12
