Once upon a time, Skippy fell down the stairs.  He was taken to the vet and they couldn’t save him.  Skippy woke up and saw himself in the mirror and he was a skeleton.  It scared him so much he meowed for an hour and then he passed out.

When he woke up he had forgotten that he was a skeleton. He looked in the mirror to see himself again - and he passed out again.  

When he woke up for the second time, he was in a circus!

A huge fake tan wearing elephant called Elanor explained everything to him, “You’re in animal heaven; you fell down the stairs and now you are in the animal heaven equivalent of the Balmoral Show”.

Skippy started crying.  The tears were a mixture of skittles and butterflies. 

“No way, I’m in farmer heaven!” he screamed.

Elanor said, “I can give you a tow back to the yard, hai bai.”

On the way back to the yard Elanor broke down.

“Oh no” she said, “I’ve broken down”.

“Seriously!” exclaimed Skippy…
