A SMART CAT

There lived a man and a woman.

The man`s name was Robin. They had a cat.

The cat`s name was Tom. Tom was very smart.

But the man wasn`t kind to him. The man didn`t like the cat.

 

And the man thought: “What can I do with this animal?” I can`t live with him in one house!”

He wanted to get rid of the cat.

 

So one day the man made a plan to take the cat far away from their house and leave him there.

 

He drove 20 blocks from home and left the cat there. When the man came home he saw the cat. Tom was walking near their house. There he was!

 

The next day Robin thought, “I can take the cat 40 blocks away this time.”

 

He drove 40 blocks away from home and left the cat there. Then he went home happily. But when he came home he saw Tom again! There he was!

Every day the man drove more and more blocks away but Tom came home before him!

 

At last the man took the cat and drove a few miles away, turned right and then left. He drove past the bridge, then right and another right and so on.

And then he thought, “This is an ideal place. The cat can`t come home from here!”

And he left Tom there.

Much time later the man called his wife and asked her, “Is the cat at home?”

“Yes. Why do you ask?” asked his wife.

And the man said, “Give him the phone. I am lost. I want to ask him how can I get home.”
