Robby's Quest: Return of the Cat, Written by DC Rush and Illustrated by Daniela Frongia. Startled, Hershey awoke from a dream. It was one he often had and it was more like a nightmare. In these dreams, Hershey discovered a young Sparrow in his backyard. Each time Hershey would sneak up on it but suddenly several other birds swooped down from the sky to rescue their friend. Hershey would lunge at the intruders but miss them completely and fall into the pool with a very loud splash! At this point in the dream, Hershey would wake and remember that this had really happened to him once. Hershey never forgave himself for missing his prey. In his younger days, he would stalk everyone, including Nomi, a much older but smaller cat who lived in the same house. Since Hershey was so big, he used to intimidate all the other cats in the area. But now, ever since he let the Sparrow escape and fell in the pool, the other cats were not afraid of him anymore. They even teased him, especially Nomi. This made Hershey feel depressed. He was not eating or sleeping very well. His owners took him to see the Vet because they thought he might be sick. Hershey knew that if he could have just one more chance at the Sparrow, he wouldn’t mess up this time and he would earn everyone’s respect once again. Recently, Hershey and Nomi had noticed increased activity around their house. Their owners were packing boxes and loading them into a large truck. Hershey was very confused. Hershey only allowed these people to live in his house as long as they fed him and took care of him. Nobody had discussed anything with him about packing and, after all, he was the main cat of the house. Hershey did not like change. But although he was curious, he decided to just kick back and play finicky. Then suddenly, Hershey felt someone picking him up. Hershey did not like being picked up at all. He was not a touchy-feely kind of cat. Sometimes people would pet him or clip his nails.
