Cat Swap Chapter 2 | children’s books, storytelling & stories for kids
Tomcil noticed something else changed , his other two legs became his arms ! He started moving his arms. Then lifted his right hand to feel his face..
All of sudden he felt taller and taller. He looked at his surrounding, the table and the chairs which usually looked way taller now look normal to him. Then he looked down and realized he only got two legs!
After deep thinking Tomcil decided to just taste the water and see if he likes being Kiki, a little boy with two legs.
Few minutes after the mantra spelled for the second time, Tomcil started to feel strange. All of sudden he felt taller and taller. He looked at his surrounding, the table and the chairs which usually looked way taller now look normal to him. Then he looked down and realized he only got two legs!
“Yippee … my other two legs are gone!” Tomcil jumped up and down.
He noticed something else changed , his other two legs became his arms ! He started moving his arms. Then lifted his right hand to feel his face.
“Oh .. My whiskers .. my lovely whiskers are gone! ” Tomcil was so sad, He loved his whiskers. But then he realized He had to let his whiskers gone if he wanted to be Kiki.
“Kiki ..! Your breakfast is ready! Tomcil heard a familiar voice.
“I think that is Kiki’s mom calling me for meals, I’d better get used to this new name.” Tomcil talking to himself
Tomcil went out from his bed room and heading to the kitchen . He saw his mommy bend down petting Kiki, then came his daddy doing the same thing, and his grand ma-meow and grand pa-paw.
“All attentions are for Kiki, they love Kiki so much,” Tomcil felt sad.
” Hmm .. but wait the minute, Kiki is me .. they love me! ” Tomcil felt even weirder.
Tomcil sat down on the chair and when he was going to eat Kiki’ s mother said, “Kiki ..! you have to use your spoon!”
“Spoon? that is ridiculous, I never use spoon when I eat! ” Although he finally used the spoon but Tomcil was not happy.
While he was eating, Kiki’s mother started telling him all the chores he must do after meal.
” i have to do all the chores ?That’s no fun!” Said Tomcil to himself.
“Kiki, do not forget about your homework from school!” Kiki’s mother added.
“Homework? what homework? when is my time to play? I don’t like this life already!” Tomcil start getting mad at the situation.
Tomcil saw Kiki just finished his meal, his grand ma-meow picked him up and put him on her lap and start petting him while watching tv.
“That should have been me, sitting on grand ma-meow’s lap, and yet I have to do all of his chores! This is not fair!” Tomcil disliking the situation even more.
He went to Kiki’s room and his mother was already there, and asked Tomcil to do Kiki’s homework. Tomcil was puzzled, he did not understand all of Kiki’s books and papers.
“This life is hard and no fun! I want my life back! I don’t like this life at all! I want my life back! My life is way more fun than this life!”
Tomcil was very upset and unhappy. Then he remembered what Genie said to him, that he can get his life back since he only purred his mantra twice. Tomcil tried so hard to remember all the steps he got to take and all the mantra he got to purr. After he memorized everything, he came out of his room and found Kiki sleeping on the couch. Tomcil sat down next to Kiki. Tick.. Tock .. Tick.. Tock .. Tomcil’s eyes starred at the cuckoo clock waiting for mid-night.
It’s 12 o’clock midnight!! Tomcil moved to pet Kiki’s head. Kiki slowly opened his eyes and Tomcil starred at them deeply and took a deep breath and purred the mantra ..
“Cipel cipel Jibah datanglah .. Tomcil is me a ball of furr .. Me is Tomcil purr .. purr .. purr .. ! ”
“Cipel cipel Jibah datanglah .. Tomcil is me a ball of furr .. Me is Tomcil purr .. purr .. purr .. purr .!”
Tomcil paused and thinking , “I was once would love to have a human life, do I really want to be back as a cat for good? Yes ! Of course I do ! I love my life!”
Without any hesitant he purred the mantra for the third time,
“Cipel cipel Jibah datanglah .. Tomcil is me a ball of furr .. Me is Tomcil purr .. purr .. purr .. !”
Tomcil felt strange, he looked down and so happy he got his four legs back. He looked to his back he could see his tail wagging . He lifted his paw and started liking it , when cleaning his face, he realized his long whiskers are back. He was so so happy . As he walked away from the couch his papi picked him up and pet him . Purr .. Purr..purr.. Tomcil enjoyed being pet so much!
Moral of Tomcil’s story : Be grateful of what you get and enjoy being you.
