The words are: obtain bounce would Siamese brawny record cent right steep wood colossal left
When she first saw the brawny Siamese cat, it was sitting there all alone on the steep pile of wood next to the barn. The surprising factor was not that the seemingly lost cat was up so high, but that it was so overweight. It surely must be someone’s pet. As she got closer to the cat, it bounced right off the pile and onto the back of the truck bed. She wondered if it would be difficult to obtain the cat’s trust.
She set out a colossal bowl full of cat treats on the ground, to the left of the truck. In record time, the cat gulped down every last bite. She ventured closer to the cat, and to her surprise it did not run away.
There was no collar on the cat, so she knew that meant a trip to the vet to see if it was microchipped. To her surprise, the cat was unchipped. The vet then told her that someone had brought in a flyer for a missing Siamese.
She called the owner in an attempt to return the cat. The owner explained that the cat’s hunger could not be satiated. The owner clarified that she was down to her last cents, because of trying to feed the cat. She asked if she could keep the cat, as the owner seemed to be struggling with feeding him.
Everyone agreed to the transfer of ownership. The Siamese was in heaven. It seemed the barn was full of mice. The cat never went hungry again.
