Catastrophe, The Astro Apostrophe Cat

alien-6.jpg 

Astro Sputnik’s cat called Catastrophe, had a tail just like an apostrophe. Unlike most cats, who came into the kitchen from outside for his tea, Astro’s cat Catastrophe floated from Mercury in zero gravity. Just like most cats, he loved to eat cream but Catastrophe, the Astro cat ate his dinner on the Moon, under stars that gleam. When he purred, meteorites shook – he rocketed off to Pluto even without a map book ! Cat – astrophe was happiest when he was orbiting Earth – because then he could see the cream cheese Moon, as he drove in his satellite backwards and forth. Unlike most cats, Astro’s cat didn’t sit on a mat. Because he was an astronaut’s cat, he floated off amongst the stars to Mars – well how about that ?! He loved to chase Astro mice – he even caught them near Venus, once or twice. But of course, what Catastrophe thought was considerably greater, was when he could fall fast asleep inside a Moon crater. Astro’s cat, Catastrophe had whiskers that stretched from here until Saturday. When Catastrophe “meiouw” ed, his cries were so loud, that the aliens on Saturn gathered in a crowd. One of the aliens thought that perhaps, a giant astroid was snoring, taking a nap. What a surprise – he could hardly believe his eyes ! (when he saw that Catastrophe was no bigger than a mince pie flying through the skies !). In the Cosmos, when it came to getting fed, Catastrophe, the astro cat, really was light years ahead. In the Cosmos, when it came to getting fed, Catastrophe the astro cat really was light years ahead.

Catastrophe, the astro cat, drank milk from a satellite dish – so when he purred about a tasty fish, his purrs radiated through the universe. Add the word “D – I -S – H” to complete the spellings.
