“Meow…meow…!” Mr Grunge tossed and turned with his pillow wrapped around the back of his head, covering both his ears but could still not shut out the melody-loving cat’s singing by doing so. He has not been sleeping well for the past couple of weeks thanks to his wife’s new pet cat. He had not slept a wink since he went to bed an hour ago and Mrs Grunge has not returned home from a long shopping spree yet.
However Melody, the pet cat, thought it was doing him a service by singing rhythmic lullabies to help him drift off to slumber-land. It was an intelligent and observant creature after all. That also explains why Mrs Grunge often spends leisurely afternoons talking to it. From what it heard and saw, it learnt about Mr Grunge’s insomnia problem. It started its late night singing hoping to lull Mr Grunge to sleep when Mrs Grunge was absent to do so.
But Mr Grunge seemed to be an uptight, grouchy old man who does not seem appreciative of its efforts and no matter how hard it tried it could not please him with its singing. To magnify its calling, it went to great lengths and even greater heights; scaling the roof of their terrace! There it delivered a live ‘opera performance’ that sounded more like shrill animal shrieks to him. In a fit of fury, he got out of bed, grabbed a sandal beneath and hurled it at the cat.
Fortunately, its cat instinct sensed an unidentified flying object looming towards it from behind and it dodged the attack. But unfortunately for Mr Grunge, it landed flat on the ‘home-coming’ Mrs Grunge’s forehead. She recognised her husband’s sandal and knew who the culprit was instantly.
Enraged by his act of insolence, she stormed upstairs to give him a piece of her mind. He had hidden under the blanket and when he uncovered himself, he was grinning from ear to ear at the comical episode. All ended well with both of them laughing heartily.
