Zara Kitten wants to show Carlotta Corn Snake around the house, but Carlotta can’t leave her tank.

Narrator: Female

Story Begins: 4:44

Imagination Exploration Excerpt:

On a cloudy morning on Ahway Island, at an old farmhouse situated near a sparkling pond, Zara the playful kitten tiptoed around inside the house with excitement bubbling inside her. Her humans were still sound asleep, but what really made her tail twitch with anticipation was the new family member who was also fast asleep! Just yesterday, Zara’s family had come back from the animal shelter with a gigantic tank and all sorts of supplies.But the most important thing they brought home was a snake! Not just any snake, but a bright and colorful orange corn snake named Carlotta.

Last night, Allie, the enthusiastic and kind-hearted little girl, had been eager to spend time with Carlotta, so Zara decided to give them their space. But now that morning had arrived and the humans were still nestled in their beds, Zara thought it would be the perfect time to introduce herself to the newest member of the family!

With a soft paw and gentle steps, Zara crept closer to Carlotta’s tank. The little kitten leapt silently onto the table on which the enclosure sat. Peering through the glass, Zara saw the snake dozing peacefully under a lamp. She couldn’t help but feel a mixture of curiosity and excitement as she watched, imagining all the adventures they would have together. Zara couldn’t wait to show Carlotta the barn and the pond!
