Bulgaria’s New Year’s Eve
Bulgaria the black cat was excited. Today was New’s Year Eve. Bulgaria lived in Seattle, Washington. A very big state indeed. There in Seattle, they held huge celebrations of kinds.
Seattle was after all, a big city. Bulgaria knew that his owner and his family were planning something big. But how big? He wondered. Will it be as exciting as the city’s celebrations? Bulgaria went to curl up in his box and pondered about what was to happen tonight.
His owner and family left. They headed into town to buy some things. But what things? Bulgaria felt even more confused than before. And so he stayed and stayed curled up tight as a ball in his favorite box. It was soon, that Bulgaria feel fast into a deep sleep.
Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring.
Bulgaria jumped up instantly. What’s going on? He looked around and still saw nothing. He looked and looked and still saw nothing.
Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring.
Bulgaria followed the sound and was soon lead into the kitchen. Climbing up onto the counter, he heard the ringing still. A lot louder. He thought. He walked up to the phone and using his paw, he knocked it down. It stopped ringing! Bulgaria went closer and closer until his ear touched the phone.
“Hey, just calling to say I will be over or the party at 5:00 pm.”
“Okay I guess, I will see you later than. Bye.”
Bulgaria then heard a click and then a dial tone.
Thought. He kept hearing the dial tone. Okay, so how does this go off? Taking his paw, Bulgaria hits the phone. Accidently he hits the keys, dialing numbers. With each hit, a new beep went off. Bulgaria was feeling frustrated. He finally decided to run off. But as Bulgaria ran off, he forgot he was on top off the counter top.
Oh no! Bulgaria thought.
Slipping and sliding, trying to use his paws to stop, Bulgaria flew over the counter top and into an open bowl of flour.
Bulgaria was covered head to toe in flour. Looking like a white kitty. Bulgaria didn’t feel too happy. The white flour covered him all over. Using his tongue he licked the flour off his face.
Bulgaria sneezed. But poor Bulgaria he ended up causing more flour to fly over his face.
Ah-ah-ah- ah- achoo!
Bulgaria sneezed again. Oh no! What have I gotten myself into? Thought Bulgaria. Stepping out of the flour bowl and sneezing like crazy, Bulgaria falls backward into the sink!
Now Bulgaria is wet. Soaked wet. Bulgaria hates water. He hates how the water makes him look like a wet rat. Bulgaria tried and tried to get out. But his little wet paws couldn’t get out. Oh no, now I’m stuck!
Bulgaria sat in the cold water. Pondering what to do. Just then, a tap, tap, tap came from the window.
Bulgaria looked up. There was his best friend, Cougar. Cougar lived nearby and often visited Bulgaria when the owners weren’t around. Cougar was a long thin but powerful cat. Seeing Bulgaria in the water, he knew his friend needed his help right away.
“Bulgaria what are you doing taking bath?”
“I’m not taking a bath you idiot. Get me out, before I die!”
Bulgaria was soaked with the cold water. If he stayed any longer he would get sick.
“Ok, chill dude.”
Looking about the sink, Cougar analyses the situation. After a few seconds, but what seemed like forever to Bulgaria, Cougar gently but firmly bit Bulgaria behind the head. Slowly, he lifted the soaking black cat out of the water. Shaking, Bulgaria got Cougar wet in the process.
“Watch it! You’re getting me wet.”
Oops. Bulgaria thought.
“Sorry. And thanks for rescuing me.”
“No, problem. I thought we can go to the party.”
“What party?” Bulgaria asked.
“The party just for us loyal cats. Sylvester and the ladies are hosting a Meow Be Wow Party.”
“But, I am all wet.” Bulgaria said.
“No, problem. Follow me, I’ll get you dry in no time.”
Bulgaria followed Cougar over to his owner’s bathroom, there behold in the cabinet was a hair dryer. Carefully plugging it in, Cougar turned it on. Not aware that it was on full blast.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Bulgaria’s handsome black fur was no longer dripping wet like a little black rat. Instead it was puffed up like a hair ball.
Shaking with laughter, Cougar couldn’t look at Bulgaria with a straight face. Bulgaria stiffly walking up to the bathroom mirror saw his reflection.
What the hell? Bulgaria knew he couldn’t go to the party looking like this. Cougar finally stopped laughing but he wouldn’t look at his friend. Bulgaria went over by his cat brush and rubbed his fur constantly against the brush. But each time he did, the brush would move further up. And Bulgaria moved up with it. Soon he was almost done. One more brush! Bulgaria thought. But as went brushed up against the brush, his tiny head hit the dresser wall. Oh.
Laughing once again, Cougar said, “Come on Bulgaria, you look much better now.”
Bulgaria was still feeling a little shaken up, so he shook and shook his head.
Following Cougar they leave the house a door and head into the alley way. Sound meows and purring could be heard. Bulgaria knew they reached the right place. Cats were playing string boxes playing a beat that the other cats enjoyed. Then then there was cat food piled up in two bowls.
“Take all you want boys, you deserve it.” Sassy told them.
Bulgaria thanked Sassy before joining his friend in eating his share of the cat food.
After a while Bulgaria was stuffed. Cougar though went over by the female cats. He wanted to flirt. But Bulgaria just watched from his spot. Laying down and purring, another black came up. Except this wasn’t a male cat. It was a female cat. She was in heat. Bulgaria could smell her a mile away. Every other male cat looked at her. But she only had eyes for Bulgaria.
“Hi, can I join you?” She asked.
Bulgaria just nodded his approval. And before he knew it, she was laying down beside him resting her head above him purring sweetly. All the other male cats were jealous. And they weren’t going to let Bulgaria keep the female to himself. Bulgaria sensing they were going to go after the female, got up.
“You should go home, I‘ll handle the others.”
The female just looked at Bulgaria in surprise then walked over to him, licking his face and brushing against him twice purring affectionately, before leaving for home.
The male cats were going to chase the female but Bulgaria antagonized them away from the female.
“Come get me you fat, ugly fools!”
Bulgaria then took off running, hoping they were chasing him instead. Briefly, turning his head he saw all six males chasing him.
Awesome! Thought Bulgaria. Time to make this interesting. Bulgaria knew Seattle better than any other cat in the neighborhood. He knew the places to avoid, and the bad spots. Running, Bulgaria leaped as high as his lean cat like body would carry him. Soon he was on top waiting for the others. The first male cat ran straight into the mood sliding all the way into the fence. The second did the same, and the third, fourth and fifth cat. But the sixth male saw what happened. He jumped high, but not high enough and landed on top of the other muddy cats. Bulgaria laughed and then headed home.
By the time Bulgaria headed home it was late at night. Seattle was full of people and bright lights. Bulgaria rushed faster and faster. He didn’t want his owner to worry about him.Soon, the house came into view and Bulgaria scratched and scratched at the door. Then to his surprise his owner came to the door.
“There you! Bulgaria, I have been looking for you all over little guy.”
Picking up Bulgaria the owner kissed Bulgaria on his tiny head and whispered, “I love you, Bulgaria.”
Bulgaria just purred and purred in his owner’s arms. Once in the house, his owner let Bulgaria down and said let’s the party begin. But Bulgaria was nowhere to be seen. His owner looked all over until he found Bulgaria quietly snoring all curled up in his favorite box.
“Happy New Year, Bulgaria.”
