Sheba Got Caught!

Hello cats.  I am happy to tell you that as of today, everyone knows that Sheba is a liar.  Here is what happened:

This morning, I was doing what had become my routine—acting crazy to scare away Mom’s stalker while trying to keep an eye on Sheba.  Today, though, Sheba did something different.  Instead of trying to hide her actions, she had the nerve to come up to my window and say, “So, I guess losing your friends has made you flip out, huh Grace?  Now, I can do whatever I want to the kittens and you can’t stop me.  No one believes anything that you say!”

I was about to throw myself at the window and try to claw her eyes out when, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a cat I hadn’t seen for a while.  It was Simone the Stealth Cat!  And, I could tell by the look on her face that she’d heard everything that Sheba had just said and was about get her.  So, while Simone was sneaking up behind Sheba, I distracted her by saying, “Sheba, I am busy trying to protect my Mom.  What did you just say?”

Sheba looked at me like I was crazy and started speaking again, “Grace, I said you are crazy and that no one believes you so I can do whatever I wa—OW!  Who just scruffed me?”

“I did,” Simone growled. Then she gave Sheba a look that scared me.  After that, she said, “It’s time for you to take a little trip, Miss Sheba!” and flipped her into the dumpster!

After she’d taken care of Sheba, Simone let out the strangest-sounding, “Meow” that I’ve ever heard.  It was one of those “meows” that humans can’t hear, but that we cats can.  As soon as she did that, all of my friends ran to my window. “What’s going on, Simone?” they meowed as one.

“Sheba has been terrifying the kittens.  And, she has been lying to all of you about it! Grace was telling the truth, even though none of you believed her,” Simone replied.

After Simone said that there was a long silence.  Then, all of my friends looked at me.  To my surprise, they had tears in their eyes.  Then, Angelina ran to my window and cried, “Grace, I am so sorry that I didn’t believe you.  I had a bad feeling about that Sheba, but I didn’t pay attention to it.  Can you forgive me?”

I wanted to make her suffer, cats.  But, I remembered how I felt when I wanted someone to forgive me.  So, I managed to say, “OK, I forgive you Angelina.”

After that, all of my friends came to my window and told me how sorry they were for not believing me.  I was so happy when that happened that I started to cry.  After I’d cried for long enough so they’d feel guilty forever to show them how happy I was that they believed me, I told them that I forgave them.  Then, they started telling me about the latest happenings in our neighborhood.  Sadly, a loud voice interrupted them.  It was Sheba yelling, “Hey!  Somebody let me out of this dumpster—now!”

All of us started to laugh.  Then Angelina and Simone hissed, “It’s going to be a while before we do that Fraidycat.”

“My name is Sheba now,” Fraidy/Sheba yowled.

“Not anymore!” we yowled back.

After we said that, Fraidy/Sheba started to yowl and hiss at everyone.  We weren’t scared of her, though.   It’s hard for a cat to be scary when she’s covered with garbage.  So, we just laughed at her and continued to gossip talk.  After a long time had passed, Fraidy finally admitted that she had lied about everything, and apologized to me.  So, Simone got her out of the dumpster, after she’d agreed to never lie about or hurt another cat ever again.  I hope she can keep that promise, or she may find herself living in the dumpster!

Right now, though, I’m just happy that all of my friends are talking to me again.  I guess that praying for Sheba really did help things to work out, even though I hated doing it at the time.  Right now, though, Herb is at my window and he is looking good. So, I am going to talk to him.  Type to you later, cats!
