A tale of a cat and the patty pan
Ribby invited a rather small dog named duchess to a party just the two of them. Ribby told duchess he could have a whole pie and ribby would eat muffins. Duchess responded writing a note to ribby saying that he would come and said hope it isn’t mouse? Then duchess thought that was quiet rude so he crossed that out and wrote hope it will be fine. Duchess thought I mustn’t eat mouse and I am dreadfully afraid it will be mouse so duchess made a plan . Duchess thought once ribby puts her pie in the oven duchess would swap it out with his pie. Ribby got the note and once she knew for sure the little dog was coming she popped her pie in the oven. Ribby put the pie in the bottom oven I’m so glad I put my pie in the bottom one the top one would have cooked way too fast she said. Then Ribby went to town to buy things she needed. Duchess went in ribbys house and couldn’t find ribbys pie! Where could it have gone duchess questioned. Duchess put his pie in the top oven because it was the only handle he could turn then he went out the opposite door ribby went out duchess went to town too. Then met at town ribby went in the shop after that duchess simply ran to ribbys house ribby came home and they started the party duchess ate half of the pie when he noticed something where is it? Where is what my dear duchess. The patty pan said duchess. I did not use a patty pan I don’t think it is necessary for mouse yes there was! I am going to die I have swallowed the patty pan! Said duchess. Shall I go get a doctor? Ribby asked. Yes please go get the doctor. Ribby rushed off to get the doctor. She found the doctor. The doctor Moved so quickly Ribby had to run. While ribby was rushing to find the doctor duchess was questioning himself. How could I have this swallowed such a large thing like a patty pan? Then he saw his pie in the oven. No wonder I feel so ill. I was eating mouse. This will be a very awkward thing to explain to ribby so he decided to drop the pie outside. When ribby came back with the doctor duchess told them she was feeling much better. Ribby said the doctor has brought you a bread pill u must take it here dear duchess here is some milk. It’s getting late. I should probably be getting home. Duchess went home. The next day ribby went into her yard she found a shattered dish with a patty pan in it. So there was a patty pan she said next time I have a party I’ll invite someone else.
