英勇的貓

The Heroic Cats

7th December 2021

米洛、賽爾維、努蒂、小桃、喬治和凱蒂是群凶猛的貓。牠們一起生活在一處陰森的森林裡。努蒂、米洛和賽爾維掌管一半的森林,凱蒂、喬治和小桃則掌管著另一半森林。

有一天,森林兩邊的貓咪們相遇了。為了爭奪地盤,發生了一場全面性的地盤爭奪戰!貓咪們開始在樹上你爭我奪,樹上全是牠們飛來跑去的身影。突然,在毫無預警的情況下,一個奇怪無比的生物從樹上突然出現。牠有像貓一樣的腳,老鷹一樣的翅膀,熊一樣的頭,而且非常非常之巨大!這頭野獸咆哮著,貓咪們嚇到全都愣住了。這時,野獸突然開始大聲咆哮,並吼道……

「你們敢膽在我的樹上打架?」怪獸咆哮著。

貓咪們全都嚇傻了。野獸看到貓咪闖入自己的地盤,氣得臉紅脖子粗。野獸把貓群從樹上趕下來,在森林裡追著牠們跑。貓咪們好不容易看到某棵樹上有一個安全的地方可以躲藏,但牠們知道野獸一定很快就會找到牠們。貓咪們決定挖一個大洞,在上面設一個網子,用樹葉蓋住。這樣,當野獸追趕上來的時候,牠就會失足掉進陷阱里,被網子卡住。

貓咪們架好陷阱後,牠們開始拼命喊著:「來抓我們吧!你這隻小蜥蜴!」

突然,貓咪們聽到從牠們身後傳來的撞擊聲。牠們害怕地轉過身來,看到那隻野獸就在牠們身後。野獸向前了一步,那瞬間,牠掉進了陷阱裡。貓咪們藏不住興奮的心情,興奮得跳上跳下,接著,牠們一同抓住網子,把野獸拖到了先前就架設好的牢籠裡。

野獸被關進了牢籠 ,貓咪們及森林裡的所有動物從此不會再受到野獸的傷害,並過著幸福快樂的日子。

​(Original Text)

Milo, Sylvie Nutty, Peaches, George and Kittycat are fierce cats. They live in a dark forest. Nutty, Milo and Sylvie own half of the forest and Kittycat, George and Peaches own the other half.

 

One day, the two sides of the forest met each other and there was a full-scale cat war over territory! The cats started fighting on a tree. The tree was black with fighting cats. Suddenly without warning, the weirdest creature came out of the trees. It had feet like a cat, wings like an eagle and a head like a bear and it was gigantic! The beast roared and the cats froze in terror. The beast suddenly started to speak in a loud growling voice.

 

“HOW DARE YOU FIGHT ON MY TREE?!” he roared.

 

The cats were terrified. The beast saw the cats on his tree and went red with anger. He chased them off the tree and then chased them all around the forest. The cats found a safe spot in the trees, but they knew the beast would find them soon. They decided to dig a big hole and put a net over it and cover it with leaves, so that when the beast came it would fall into the trap and get stuck in the net.

 

When they were finished, they started shouting as loud as they could. “COME CATCH US, YOU LITTLE LIZARD!”

 

Suddenly, the cats heard crashing from behind them. They turned around fearfully and saw that the beast was behind them. The beast stepped forward and suddenly he fell into the trap they made. The cats jumped up and down with joy. They caught hold of the net and dragged it to the closest prison.

 

The beast was thrown into a prison cell and the cats and all the animals in the forest were safe from the beast for the rest of their lives.
