Yellow Cat: stories for children

“Oh, my black and white friend, if we had one owner …”
“I every time I get close to a human, if he does not throw me a stone, he hit me with a slipper, or a pillow …”

“Heh, heh, heh, ashy friend, so I managed to enter through a window. I always run to the kitchen to eat a fish fillet, or meat. ”
Look, black and white, I have to settle for catching mice over the rooftops. I always find the doors and windows closed.”
The yellow cat knew the secret that his fellow ignored: meow. She meowed and rubbed her tail between the legs of humans. So, of this manner, she communicated with them. Only now, at that moment, she only saw a darkness inside the house of their owners.
So, she was hoping one day.
On the second day, she was waiting patiently for one of its owners arrived. She did not see their owners return. But the third day, if it really was the third because he did not know count consecutively, he realized that some humans had reached to the supposed property of their owners.

She started meowing desperately.
“They should be,” meowed the yellow cat, “maybe they give me some milk and lots of love.”
When they saw the yellow cat, they not ignored her. She understood that those humans were different. They hardly resembled their owners.

The yellow cat was frightened. She stopped wagging her tail, and she made a mewing like wildlife cats, away from humans. She settled her legs and ran as she could. She realized that the house of their owners, where she was born and raised was destroyed. In place of the house only they had debris and smoke that prevented to see their surroundings.
After a few days she realized she was alone. She was completely alone. But she had a hope. She still had a necklace around her neck that she seemed most striking among neighborhood cats. Also someone could identify her and communicate to their owners.

Since then she showed surly. Sometimes, when a man approached her, then she ran wildly. She hid in the undergrowth. From there she watched the area where the house was built from their owners.

The yellow cat felt sadness, even in her solitude.

Pupy & Pancha: stories for children

“Hey, how about you? What you're doing here?”
“Same thing you are doing here”, replied Pupy.
“Hey, how dare you answer me rudely?”
“Sorry, your grace. I treat you as you treat me.”
The black mouse was furious. He was about to bite Pupy. But he stopped because Pupy was no ordinary mouse as he and his fellows, darker colors.
“Let me see”, said the black mouse. “I am Ayán, Who are you?”
“Me?” The white mouse was amazed. “Well, my name is Pupy.”
“Pupy?” Ayán was amazed too. “I do not know any Pupy around here.”
“Okay, now you know me: I am Pupy One.”
When he uttered the last word, he began to see Ayán teeth became increasingly larger. It seemed that Ayán was growing teeth in the darkness that still Pupy was unsuitable.            
Wait! Wait!!” A brown mouse intruded.
“Who are you?” Asked Ayán.
“I'm Manny, well known in these parts. I corroded hundreds of pounds of food. I nibbled thousands of cheeses. I have eaten steak at the best restaurants and stores in this world. “
Ayán laughed:
“Yes, I see. Now I remember you. But that…” Ayán pointed his gaze to Pupy, “I had never seen him.”
“To me?” Pupy intruded. “Well, I'll tell you I could be a victim of hundreds of thousands of syringes. I have escaped many laboratory workers, and look at me here, alive and nibbling.”
“And what do syringes and laboratories in this conversation?” Asked Ayán.
Ayán, with syringes I saw them do many experiments on white mice. Some lost their sight; others lost their limbs.  Drugs deformed heads many mice. Finally, they tested the drugs on us to prevent and cure diseases to humans.
“What human?! “, Manny hesitated.
Ayán did not believe in the words of Pupy. Really, he knew very little about the syringes and chemicals. He had grown up in the darkness, in the streets, in underground tunnels like the tunnel where he was. He urged a must: try the white flesh of a little white mouse as Pupy.
Without thinking he fell on him. A little more, and he had bitten Pupy, running nervously from side to side in a dry area of ​​the tunnel.
“Wait, wait, Ayán!” Many said.
“Who are you to give me orders?”
“I told you who I am, and I ask you to reflect against Pupy.”
“Why do you tell me that?”
Pupy sat quietly in a corner. He was already thinking about getting in the water and swim like a while ago. He had learned to swim in seconds.
“If you eat Pupy, you could die.”
“I die?” Ayán boasted. “I am eternal. I have caused more losses to the human race than you.”
“Wait, Ayán”, Manny returned to insist. “Cannot you see Pupy is a laboratory mouse?”
“Yes and what? This should be tasty white meat.”
Many did pause to Ayán. Certainly, Pupy could damage the Ayán’s   stomach. For many years it was rumored that the white mice transmitted diseases that could not withstand the other species of mice. Ayán looked less Pupy intentions of biting, who only begged another chance with his red eyes and pink snout.
“Give me a chance, Ayán”, again beg Pupy, “all mice have the right to be pet and to be treated as such.”
But Ayán, which still had a desire to prove that white meat Pupy, returned to be aggressive.
More species of mice began to arrive, both black and mulatto; some mice were lighter, some darker.
“Now what we do with that mouse pink snout?” Mice were asked, before Ayán and Many.
“Well ...let's eat it! “ Shouted a group of mice mulattoes, blacks and whites.
Pupy had devised a Plan B: escape. He wanted to return to the civilized world, leave the underground and dark life where much evil was brewing ... now against him.
“Just a moment!” Pupy shouted.
“Hey, how you dare yell!” Adrian was furious.
Almost Manny had left his role as mediator in the conflict against Pupy.
“If you are going to execute me,” Pupy said, “I have a right to complain first.”
“What rights you speak! ...” Intervened Ayán, “if humans violate them.”
“Yes, yes!” Many mice shouted.
“We will never be treated as pets,” still talking Ayán. “Human annihilate us. They will reduce to zero our species through poisons.”
“Permission,” Pupy said, “if you keep nibbling sacks of food in warehouses, humans will continue poisoning us... “
“Mutes the pink snout!” Ayán interrupted again.
“If you want me to eat, you have to listen first,” continued Pupy. “But remember that soon after swallow, some of you will become a chemical mass. I am sure you will die like my kind of white mice. Otherwise it is time to demand our animal right to become pets... And that humans treat us as such! Mouse is more than white, more than mulatto, more than black.”

Then only silence was heard. Then a group of mice, terrified by the words of Pupy, began to leave. They left another group will test the white meat Pupy and those were risk of poisoning because of a chemical waste, alias Pupy One trademark.

“Woof! Go away, old woman,” said a dog, “It is not her issue! Woof, woof!”
The dogs had no intention of obeying her. While the old woman was shouting more to dogs, these beasts were approaching to the little monkey a little more with intentions to bite him.
The old woman chose another tactic: she took up her cane. She pointed toward the dogs with his cane. The old woman was doing that for over half an hour. The little monkey stopped moving. The head of the pack of dogs retired with his henchmen behind his tail.
Indeed the old woman did not understand why the dogs were gone. The dogs had not bitten to the little monkey. They had abandoned their prey.
When she was closer to the little monkey, with her cane began to touch him. She did not see him a trail of blood. He had just closed his eyes. The old woman did not know if forever. With mother’s compassion, she reached down and took him in her arms. That little monkey did not weigh even a kilo, or one pound. He was dying. Worse, he was delirious by a disease called hunger.

She wrapped him in a sweatshirt she was wearing. It had been raining for several days. The weather had brought an outbreak of flu in humans very strong in those days. Small monkeys and other animals also suffered from other diseases, other than what ailed the specimen that the old woman was carrying. Only, this disease, is cured with food.

Are you sure it's around here?”

“Is this not the last curve? “ Asked Cuzo.
Heras remained silent. He noted that the stones had changed its color and size. The stones were larger and darker.
They had been perceiving the change of flora, as a friend had told them. They imagined that a lion could jump over them.
 Heras heard a grunt and he looked toward Cuzo.
You're not going to think we’re in the jungle,” Heras said.
Dogs bark...”
“And dogs do not growl?”
In any case are big dogs,” Cuzo assured, as he pressed the handlebars of the bicycle. Sometimes the treetops was so high that crisscrossed branches and prevented the penetration of sunlight.
Cuzo thought again at night and, at dawn. Suddenly they heard someone moaning. The grunts were gone.
“Could it be ... a tiger?”
Heras watched and added: “a wild dog.”
“How do you know if you have not seen it?”
“How stupid you are ... not gross, gross woman.”

Cuzo panicked and promoted the idea of a loose predator. Heras compared those shouts with sexual gestures. He busied himself in those virile memories. He had an erection and pedaled slowly.
“Many women prefer terror,” nodded Heras, “that woman was raped, sure.”
Cuzo stepped forward, and called him Heras.
“I knew it, you see?” Cuzo said, “I was right.”
We can no longer return.”
Cuzo felt a depression. They were sweaty. Heras came back to pedal near Cuzo, who looked sideways. He imagined beasts in the dense foliage.
Masons noticed that the songs of birds had disappeared. They saw no sparrows, or butterflies.
“We're close,” Heras said.
They stopped. Heras looked at Cuzo. Cuzo watched to Heras. Cuzo now was watching around. They did not see anyone. They just saw a buzz of flies and a row of ants, which they came from the house. Cuzo looked up and saw the building.
The house was colonial style, mysterious and challenging. He pointed the way to Heras. It was true. The house was also covered by rare trees that a biologist it would take time to decipher if these species of tree existed. At the back of the house there was a red lagoon. Cuzo did not want to believe it. He thought that the color was due to discharges from a chemical factory. But they knew that there not was a hut in a lot kilometers around, much less a factory...
