FC: Mr Smiggles Gets in a Muddle
2: With Love To ......................
3: It was a warm summers morning, in January 2010 a beautiful little kitten with long white fluffy fur and chocolate ears, was born to Sanja and Raja. Sanja was a most regal chocolate Burmese and Raja was a blue point Siamese, and their baby Mr Smiggles. This is the story of how Mr Smiggles came to live at our house.
4: The house where Mr Smiggles was born was owned by David and Kym. They loved all the kittens very much, but sadly their house was just not big enough to be able to keep all of them. So six weeks after they were born, David took Mr Smiggles and his brother Mr Timothy to the pet shop. David knew the little kittens were so adorable he was very sure they would find a good home to make people very happy.
5: No Mr Smiggles, you're a cat.!
6: The two kittens played very happily in the new cage in the shop window. But it was not long and Mr Smiggles became very sad. He was missing his mummy and daddy, and just wanted to go home and have a cuddle. He thought how he can I get out of this cage and go home. He was just about to cry, he was so sad when a nice lady came into the shop. "Can I hold that kitten please", she asked the shop keeper. "He looks like he needs a cuddle." To Mr Smiggles surprise he was soon safely tucked up in a new carrying box and on his way to a new home. "
7: Once there was a very curious little cat His name was Miggles and he lived with Lesley, John and Murray on an island off the coast of Queensland Australia. Miggles was no ordinary cat, I am not sure what he thought he was, but, he definitely didn't fit in with the other two cats in our house. | No Mr Smiggles you're a cat!
8: Mr Smiggles was no ordinary cat, he was a Rag Doll Cat. His fur was so silky soft and long, and his ears, nose, tail and paws looked like they had been dipped in chocolate. His eyes as blue as the sky on a summers day. Although he was only very small Mr Smiggles had the heart and courage of a great big lion. There was no box to big, or toy to fierce to frighten him. He was brave and strong and determined to find out everything about his new home as quickly as possible. "

10: I can be so bold a brave and catch a crocodile today. I would pounce and chew on him. I would bite his tail and throw him down. Surely that will show my skill at hunting such a bright green monster. That should show what I can do, kill a crocodile or two. They keep on telling me I am cute and small, but I will show them I am bold. But I know I must always listen to what I am told.
11: No Mr Smiggles you're a cat!
12: Marley came to visit me, she brushed my hair and played with me. I jumped and played, and chased the toys. She laughed and giggled, filled with joy.
13: No Mr Smiggles you're a cat!
14: Soon it was time for her to go, so I was bored, and so I decided to explore. I will find a treasure, chase a ball, here I go right down the hall. | Marley was such fun you see, and she loved to be with me.
15: No Mr Smiggles you're a cat!
16: I couldn't settle, I wanted more so I decided to explore for more, but my new friends said, what ever for? Mrs Taffy, and Miss Sooty they were happy as can be. They were happy that now we were three!
17: No Mr Smiggles you're a cat!
18: The lady who bought me, she loved me a lot. She gave me lots of cuddles and I like that a whole lot. There was lots of things to play with, and always something new. A box of ribbons, pearls, and beads. I will look so pretty, just wait and see.
19: No Mr Smiggles you're a cat!
20: I'll try the pink ones first I think They look so nice what do you think? I can wear them I am sure. Oh no, they fell right on the floor!
21: No Mr Smiggles you're a cat!
22: Or maybe ribbon is my style I think I will keep looking for a while. It tickles my nose and wraps round my toes'. I wonder if I can tie a bow?
23: No Mr Smiggles you're a cat!
24: Ah- I found some Pearls, now they could be fun. I wonder how fast that I can run? Can I have them can I please, I can have such fun with these.
25: No \Mr Smiggles you're a cat!
26: Oh, Mr Smiggles now enough play for you, fancy jewels are not for you. All those pretty things are not for little pussies games. Time for dinner, have some food and take a nap. You look so tired from all of that. We love you Mr Smiggles don't you see. That no matter what you do, you are forever our special little cat.
27: Nothing Is as Beautiful As Children's Laughter. | No Mr Smiggles you're a cat!
28: Now I am so tired from play, my eyes are sleepy, as sleepy as can be. So I'll take a little nap, where its safe and warm on my owners lap. I can sleep so peacefully because I know I am a very special, don't you see. Because I am loved just like you!
