” I want to be human, higher and own two legs, I hate this four legs and this long tail! I look ridiculous!”

Tomcil’s grand ma-meow and grand pa-paw came to visit him . Along with them were a nice couple with their little boy named Kiki. He was a good little boy. He listened to what his parents say to him, very obedient kid.
He was loved by every one , even Tomcil’s mommy and papi , grand ma-meow and grand pa-paw loved him. Tomcil followed every single move Kiki made.

” How come I can’t be like Kiki?” Tomcil started to feel jealous.

” I want to be human, higher and own two legs, I hate this four legs and this long tail! I look ridiculous! ” Tomcil jealousy getting bigger and bigger.

Until one night he was thinking so hard to find a way to become a human, he fell a sleep.
In his sleeping he dreamed of Genie, the one he met during his adventure with Aladdin.

“Something bothering you Tomcil?” Asked Genie.

” Yeah .. I can’t live like this any longer ! I want to be like Kiki! Is there any way you can help me?” Tomcil asked Genie back .

” Are you sure you want to do this ? ” Genie was somewhat shock with Tomcil’s wish.

“Oh absolutely! 100 percents!” Tomcil reassured Genie.

“So, let me understand this, are you wanting to be Kiki? If that’s the case I can swap your life with Kiki’s life!” Said Genie .

“Oh you are the best Genie, that’s exactly what I want!” Tomcil’s eyes get bigger.tomcil-storytelling-for-children-cat-swap

“Hmm …alright .. listen to this very carefully .. next thursday right at mid-night when Kiki is asleep, rubbed your head against his face until he wakes up. Once he opens his eyes, make sure you stare at his eyes deeply and purr this mantra .. Cipel cipel Jibah datanglah .. Kiki is me a ball of furr .. me is Kiki ..purr purr purr .. ! ” Told Genie to Tomcil about the mantra.

Tomcil was listening very carefully and start learning how to purr the mantra.

” Cipel cipel jibah datanglah.. Kiki is me a ball of furr .. me is Kiki.. Purr purr purr.. hmm I think I got it! ” Said Tomcil to Genie.

“Wait a minute, here’s the catch if you want to be Kiki permanently , you must purr this mantra three times, if not just purr it twice, remember that!” Genie warned Tomcil.

“And if you decide to be a cat again , at midnight when Kiki asleep you need to pet his head until he wakes up, then stare at his eyes deeply and purr  this mantra,

“Cipel cipel Jibah datanglah .. Tomcil is me a ball of furr .. Me is Tomcil purr .. purr .. purr . .. purr this twice if you want to be back as a cat temporarily  and three times if you want to be back as a cat for good!”  Genie then disappeared and Tomcil woke up.

Came thursday morning Tomcil really could not wait for the sun to be set. After the sun was set, every one gathered on the diner table to have some meals and enjoy each other’s company . As usual Mommy gave Tomcil a bowl of fresh cat food and  papi gave him a bowl of fresh water.

“Let’s go sleeping with me Tomcil!” Said Kiki while picking him up.

Kiki petted Tomcil before he finally went to sleep.

It was 11 o’clock, Kiki had been asleep for almost 2 hours. Tomcil was very nervous . Another hour he could become Kiki. Yes, a human being with two legs and can stand up higher. He could not sleep … could not wait.
Tick tock.. Tic Tock .. Tick.. Tock .. Tomcil’s eyes starred at the cuckoo clock waiting for mid-night.

It’s 12 o’clock mid-night!! Tomcil got up and started rubbing his head against Kiki’s face over and over again. Kiki’s eyes slowly opening up. Tomcil stared at Kiki’s eyes so deep and started purring the mantra ..

” Cipel cipel jibah datanglah.. Kiki is me a ball of furr ,,,  me is Kiki.. Purr purr purr …!”

And he said it again for the second time ..

” Cipel cipel jibah datanglah.. Kiki is me a ball of furr ,,,  me is Kiki.. Purr purr purr..”

Then Tomcil stopped. And rethinking “Do I really want to be a human forever? Will I like human’s life ?”

Did The mantra work? Did Tomcil finally decided to be Kiki forever?

Stay tune for the next episode..
