Once there was a white and brown cat called Chip. He lived with me and my family. You would think him a normal cat, but he wasn’t. He was a secret agent!
At night, Chip would go outside and spy on families. When he was done, he would go to Cat HQ and report to Master Cat.
The cats’ enemies were the dogs who just copy the cats. If a cat was touched by a dog, they turned into a dog!
There were lots of mice at Cat HQ that they ate for dinner!
At Cat HQ, there are twenty-four secret agent cats, thirty hero cats and one Master Cat. The Master Cat trains the other cats. The secret agent cats train to be sneaky and the hero cats train to defend.
One morning, Chip had just eaten breakfast. Me and my family love playing with Chip and we still didn’t know Chip was a secret agent.
The previous night, Chip had gone outside and spied on a family. This family was different to the rest, who all played video games. They were reading and playing board games. They even taught each other new things. Chip wanted to find out why this family was different.
First, he had to tell Master Cat. Master Cat was surprised so he went with Chip to check it out. When Master Cat saw what was happening, he went back to Cat HQ and didn’t talk.
At home, Chip played his favourite ball game then took a long nap. He had a bad dream; he got caught sneaking outside! When he woke, he didn’t know it was night time so didn’t go outside to spy. He was afraid that Master Cat wouldn’t be happy! When he went to Cat HQ the next night, Master Cat wasn’t that mad.
Chip became a better secret agent over the years.
