Animals & Aliens

The aliens were nearly done with earth. They went to an RSPCA shelter to look at animals. Cute animals. They bought their version of a camera and took photos of the animals. Some of the dogs were freaked out by the aliens so they barked a lot while others made yipping noises. The cats hissed. The hamsters shook in their little wheels. The fish just did what fish do. They went in circles in their tank.
They then went to a science fiction store and made funny faces at the customers. Most of the humans felt blessed to meet the aliens. Some of them were Doctor Who and Star Trek fans. The rest of the humans passed out, shocked at seeing real life aliens.

The Cats Meet

Madame Sophelia did not know how to react to the new cat. They first hissed at each other. Hopefully they would get along. Mary was worried. She decided to quickly get another two cans of tuna in order to get the two cats distracted. Prince Alexander enjoyed his tuna. Sophelia was not interested in her tuna. It would be her fifth can of tuna that day.

Mary sighed. She had been able to introduce the two cats without too much hassle.

“Thank you for the tuna.” Prince Alexander purred.
“You are welcome.” Mary responded.
“I would like another one.” Alexander asked.
“But that one is mine.” Sophelia purred. Despite her reluctance to eat another one.
“Maybe we could share?” Prince Alexander suggested.
“That would be too weird…” Madame Sophelia huffed.

The Cat Shelter

At Mary’s House
Mary was going to get another cat. She did not know how Sophelia would react to the new addition to the house. She also needed to decide on a name for the second cat.

“Sophelia..” Mary began.
“What is it now? I was having a nap.” Sophelia asked
“I am getting another cat.” Mary continued.
“But I thought you liked me? Why would you want another cat? Sophelia huffed, sad that she might be replaced by another cat.

At The Nearby Cat Shelter/Kennel
The new cat didn’t know what to do with himself. His name was Prince Alexander.
He had a sort of haughtiness about him, a regal air. He was wondering how he’d arrived in a kennel. He was not used to confined spaces. He also wondered when he was going to be fed. It had been weeks since he’d last had tuna. He missed the taste and the fishy smell.

Mary entered the cat shelter. Sophelia had been left at home with three cans of tuna. She wasn’t too worried about Sophelia. She’d be full by the time she got home. She began to walk down the aisle full of cages. She then spotted a fluffy grey cat.

“Hello what’s your name?” Mary asked the fluffy cat. The cat was confused. It was not used to humans talking to him.
“My name is Prince Alexander. Pleasant to meet you.” Prince Alexander responded not sure the human would understand him.
“Hello Prince Alexander. Could I call you Alex instead?” Mary asked.
“No. It is Prince Alexander. No nicknames allowed.” Prince Alexander replied.
“Oh okay. Would you like to go to my house for tuna? All you can eat tuna.”
“I would love tuna human.”
“Then It’s settled. Tuna will await you. Let me just ask someone to take you home. Hang in there Prince Alexander!” Mary said a bit reluctantly. She was starting to develop a cat reputation and radar.
