Waiting at the Rainbow Bridge. Part 1

This is Pretty. Well, actually, her name is Scarlett, but she was like silk velvet so mommy and daddy called her Pretty. When mommy and daddy moved to Pennsylvania together they decided to get 2 kitties. One of them was Pretty, the other was a darling tuxedo cat called slippers. Slippers was a kitten, but Pretty was already a year old. When the beans were deciding who to take home the man insisted on Pretty cause she was so friendly and purry. As soon as the beans got Slippers and Pretty home, Pretty hid under the bed for a week! The daddy crawled under there and laid there with her. He fed her there and made sure she had water and lots of scritches. She eventually came out and loved the beans. She went all over the country with the beans...California, Iowa, Rhode Island, Maryland...She was never a problem when it came to traveling. I guess she figured as long as her beans were there then she was going to be okay.
Pretty hated to be outside but she loved Slippers and would follow him anywhere. Unfortunately, Slippers loved being outside and would break out any chance he got. That meant that Pretty would get outside, realize where she was, and try like heck to get back in. Many times Slippers and Pretty would find a screen that would give a little and squeeze out of it. But as soon as they were through it, the screen would pop back into place. Well, mommy adored her kitties, but still couldn't help laughing when Pretty would panic and start trying to jump back in the window they just jumped out of. In fact, sometimes that is how mommy knew the puddins got out...She would hear the bonk, bonk, bonk, of Pretty trying to get back in. HAHAHAHAAA.

Sounds like it's going to be a sad story about getting outside. Mom got your mom's email, and has tried sending several emails but they keep bouncing back. As for the html ask either Edsel or Timmy's mom. They know lots more than my mom does.

That's a funny story about getting out then going "oops, what am I doing? let me IN?" Sounds like they were best friends.

I don't like the title, so I think it is going to be sad.
