從前有一隻貓叫奇奇,牠身上有咖啡色和白色的花紋。奇奇和我還有我的家人住在一起。你可能會覺得牠只是一隻普通的貓咪,但其實牠是一名秘密特務。

 

每天晚上,奇奇都會偷偷溜出門到別人家裡去蒐集情報,任務完成後,牠就會回到喵喵基地把情報告訴貓老大。

 

狗狗幫是喵喵基地最大的敵人,因為他們總是愛模仿貓咪,而且不小心被狗狗幫裡的狗觸摸到,貓咪還會瞬間變成狗!

 

喵喵基地裡有很多老鼠可以給貓咪們享用。

 

聽說在那裡,有二十四隻秘密特務貓、三十隻勇士貓和一隻貓老大。貓老大負責訓練秘密特務貓如何偷偷溜進別人家裡,而勇士貓則是學習如何保護喵喵基地。

 

某天早上奇奇吃完早餐後,我們家一如往常和牠一起玩耍,但那時我們都還不知道牠是秘密特務。

 

其實前一天晚上,奇奇又悄悄跑到外面觀察一戶人家,牠發現這家人不像其他家庭總是在休息時間打電動,反而是在讀書或是下棋,甚至互相聊著有趣的事,因此奇奇想知道這戶人家為什麼如此特別。

 

接著,奇奇跑去告訴貓老大這件事,貓老大聽到後很驚訝,因此決定和奇奇去一探究竟。然而,當貓老大親眼看見那戶人家後,牠卻一句話也沒說就回去喵喵基地了。

 

到了下午,奇奇在家玩完牠最愛的丟球遊戲,就接著睡了個漫長的午覺。牠做了惡夢,牠夢見出任務的時候行蹤曝光了!奇奇頓時驚醒,卻沒發現天色漸暗又到了出任務的時間。牠忘記出任務,所以很害怕貓老大會不開心!不過隔天晚上奇奇回喵喵基地時,貓老大並沒有生氣。

 

多年之後,奇奇成為了一名更優秀的秘密特務。

​(Original Text)

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.
