Mrs. Fluffernutter, Her Foot, and the little Girl
Once upon a time there was a Foot that lived in a book shaped house with her cat, Mrs. Fluffernutter. Now the Foot lived with her cat a ways out by themselves and had no neighbors but people would drive by and stop and take pictures of the strange house the stranger foot and her cat. The Foot’s cat wasn’t named Mrs. Fluffernutter because she was a big fluffy cat; nope she had her name because she was a big stinky cat. The Foot couldn’t figure out why her cat smelled so bad. The Foot kept a very clean house and everyday made sure to wash her socks and her pillow, which got stinky from the cat sleeping on it every night. After doing the wash the Foot would go out into its backyard and hang up the socks it wore to stay toasty roasty warm and to hang up the stinky pillow that Mrs. Fluffernutter laid on. The Foot loved her cat even though she was a stinky cat, that didn’t matter to her, she loved the cat so much and just made sure to keep the stinkiness of the cat out of the house by lots of cleaning and washing.
Every day the Foot would get up stretch, put the cat out, do laundry, eat some food, feed the cat, and then go and sit on her front porch with the cat and watch as people came by and stopped and took pictures. For the Foot this was almost a perfect life, except for her stinky cat, if she could ever figure out how to make it so that the cat smelled better then it would be perfect. Days and days went by and the Foot and Mrs. Fluffernutter were quite content. One fine day a little girl came by to sell the Foot some cookies. The Foot was thrilled because of all the people that came by her book shaped house no one ever stopped to talk or say hi but this little girl did just that. The little girl was disappointed to find that the Foot didn’t eat cookies and neither did the cat but she promised to come back and visit with them the next day. And she did come back and visit every day. Soon the little girl and the Foot were best friends. The little girl decided one day that she would help the foot find out why her cat was so stinky. That day the little girl asked the Foot, “What kind of cat food do you give Mrs. Fluffernutter?” “Cat food?” replied the Foot, “I feed her beans, garlic, Sauer kraut, and cheese, she loves it all.” The little girl told the Foot, “I’ll bring some cat food for Mrs. Fluffernutter tomorrow and we’ll see if she likes it.” And the next day she did as she said.
The little girl gave Mrs. Fluffernutter the cat food and she promptly gobbled it all up. The Foot was amazed, she said, “The cat never eats the food I give her that quickly.” Now the Foot started to notice some changes in her cat, Mrs. Fluffernutter actually did become fluffier, she acted better, and best of all she didn’t stink. Mrs. Fluffernutter was no longer a stinky kitty. The Foot didn’t have to wash her pillow and hang it out every day to dry, nope, now she just had to wash her socks a few times a week. With all of this new time she had the Foot was able to spend more time relaxing on her front porch with Mrs. Fluffernutter, the little girl and all sorts of new friends because once the stinkiness was gone from the cat people actually wanted to come and visit with the Foot, the cat, and the little girl. Mrs. Fluffernutter, the Foot, and her best friend the little girl all lived long happy lives. The end.
