Read an Excerpt

Mia turned on her light. She took the lid off Cheetah's box. She couldn't see Cheetah at first. Then she spied her hiding in the grass. Mia ran her finger gently down Cheetah's back. Cheetah trembled.

"Don't be scared, Cheetah," Mia whispered.

She picked Cheetah up and held her close.

"Oh, Cheetah," she said sadly, "am I your monster?"

Log 3<p> chetahpaw<br> yesterday while thunderstrike were training the clan was attacked by cyotes! Thunderstrike told me to o to the appritance den while he got to fight. There are more, maybe i will get to fight next time! I was learning hunting when that happenned though! So i had to pounce on amoss ball. While training, before the cyote attack, one apprittance and his mentor got too close and thunderstrike had to chase them away! Well tomorrow i get to learn fighting! Itsgetting late and my sis is getting close. I can not wait for tomorrow!<p>log 4<p> cheetahpaw<br> today was a little lamer then i thought it would be.
