And now, back to our story...
Freckles had finished grooming herself and took a little nap while lying just as flat as a pancake. I rose from my chair and quietly plucked the box from behind the planter. I opened it up and set it on its side, allowing the paper to fall naturally onto the carpet. Then, I went to sit down and watch what Freckles would do when she woke up and spied the box with paper that was sitting not far from her resting spot.
I didn’t have to wait long. She opened her eyes and noticed the box immediately. She waited for a moment before jumping to her feet and hopping over to the box.
