It is the last Friday in the month, so it is time for FFHT!
Thanks to Murphy and Stanley for organizing this fun event.
Today's story takes place a long time ago, in an apartment high up in the sky (well, not that high, it was the 6th floor).
In this apartment, there lived a wild panther name Bagheera. He was a fierce beast who had slain the curtains and had learned to hunt for bread by opening the freezer. Like all good panthers, Bagheera occasionally liked to play in the water. He would hop up on the counter and play in the sink. He was very curious about the tub.
One day, the Man was having a peaceful bath in the tub. Panther Bagheera was on the edge playing in the water. Then, without warning, our brave panther slipped into the tub. There was screaming. The Lady came running to find a very wet and unhappy cat, and to see the tub water turning red. When the panther had fallen in, he had scratched up the Man. The Lady found this very, very funny, and nearly died laughing. (She is not the kind of person you want around if you want everything to be all serious and quiet. She finds almost everything funny.)
She knew, she and the Man would remember this forever because of the scar left on the Man's belly. After this, the panther Bagheera was more cautious around water, but until he was a very old cat, did occasionally like to play in it. However, he was never invited back to bath time!
