I went over to my new scooter but someone was all ready there. Curled in a furry lump was the next door neighbor’s huge black cat.
‘Get off!’ I shouted.
The cat shot up into an arch shape, fur spiking, mouth all hissing and spitting.
I went to pick him up but he clawed and bit me, causing me to back off. Pain hit and blood dripped down my hands.
Swearing, I tried again with the same result.
‘Okay, fine! You’ve won today, cat!’ I snapped and walked off to catch the bus instead.
