''I'll Never Eat Mice Again''

By: Melissa A.

Once,on the disgusing jungle floor I called home,I was sound asleep when something stepped on my paw.I jumped up and yelped.It was just a stupid mouse.I grabbed it up and it said''Please spare me now and I'll help you someday.''''Let me think...uh..NO!I bellowed.Without another word,I shoved that runt down my throat.Just then I felt a chill down my spine and everything was dark.Next thing I knew I was in a zoo cage.I was real tired so I yawned.As I did,out jumped that pipsqueak mouse.SO I lived not so happily ever after.But I learned to NEVER eat mice again!
