Gertrude and her little lost cat!

Winter was quick to sweep through the land of Gielinor. The roads crunched underneath you with the build-up of ice.
I was out for my morning stroll when I heard a lady shouting in the distance.
"Oh dear oh dear, where's my poor Swagzo gone? "Come here Swagzo; mommy has some lovely shrimp for you!"
"Hello, ma'am. I heard you shouting from down the road. Is everything alright?" I asked.
The lady began tearing up.
"No. My poor Swagzo hasn't come home yet. It's not like her to not come back for breakfast. With this chilly weather, I'm more worried. I sent my friend Zorial Diamond to look for her as well, but she also wasn't returned!"
"Oh no! If you wish, I could go and see if I could locate the both of them. I'm very familiar with Varrock."
The lady began to cry more as she put her arms around me and squeezed tightly.
"Thank you so much, sir! I have a funny feeling Swagzo may be hanging around the Lumber Yard just to the east of here. For whatever reason, she regularly comes home smelling like freshly made planks."
I smiled and waved good-bye to the lady. I ran inside the bank and grabbed a Super energy potion to run over to the Lumber Yard.

The journey took roughly thirty minutes. I stood outside the Lumber Yard holding some catnip the lady gave me. Unsuccessfully, Swagzo was nowhere to be seen.
"Hey there buddy, Looks like you're looking for something. Anything I can help with?" the Sawmill operator asked.
"Yes actually, I am looking for this lady's cat named Swagzo. She even sent a friend also to look for her. Have you seen either of them sir?"
The man shook his head.
The Lumber Yard from the outside appeared to be huge. I had a strange feeling if I could get inside, I would find Swagzo; so I began walking the outskirt of the yard.

I walked slightly north, and sure enough, I found an entrance to the Lumber Yard. I made an agile leap across the fence; landing inside.
Many crates and machines used to create planks highlighted the huge yard. I made my way around each crate individually, strictly searching. Even with holding the catnip still, I could not lure the cat out of hiding.
With doing one lap around the yard, I came across a ladder in the center. I peered through the small opening and began to climb.
Only more crates were on the upper level. Once again, I made my way to all the crates with once again, no sight of the cat. I was about to climb back down to ground level when suddenly I was tapped on the shoulder. I turned around and saw a girl with blue hair and festive clothing looking worried.
"Hello, stranger. You would appear to be Zorial Diamonds, is that correct?" I asked.
"Yes. My friend Gertrude sent me to help find her cat. I assume she also sent you. I do have some fantastic news. As I came up earlier, I could hear faint meow's coming from somewhere within this area. So the cat can't be far away."
I nodded as I joined Zorial in the search for the cat. We checked around the upper level once again, this time more thoroughly. In the corner, three crates were positioned diagonally, making space for something to possibly hide. We leaned over to check the area and sure enough, we found Swagzo.
Zorial reached down to pick her up, but Swagzo had other plans. She began hissing at us both.
"This isn't like Swagzo to be like this. Something must be wrong!" Zorial said sobbingly.
"Maybe she's hungry and thirsty. It's possible she could have been out here all night. I did bring some shrimp and a bucket of milk with me; I'll place them down and see if she wants them."

I put the items near Swagzo. She never touched either of the items after five minutes and continued to hiss at us both. Suddenly, I could hear very faint meows of kittens.
"Hey Zorial, do you hear those meows?"
She nodded. Within seconds, Swagzo darted off the upper level and down the ladder to the ground floor. We quickly reacted and did the same.
Back on the ground and next to the ladder, we noticed a big cardboard box we both had missed. I carefully opened it up and inside were many kittens, along with Swagzo. Zorial eyes got very wide, and she started screaming and jumping up and down.
"OH MY GOODNESS THEY ARE ALL SO ADORABLE! GERTRUDE WILL LOVE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. Devon, I demand you to pick up this box and carry it back to Gertrude!"
"Hey, I barely know you, and you're demanding stuff of me already? Why do I even bother helping people?" I asked as I let out a long sigh.
I agreed to carry the box back to Gertrude with Zorial. After an hour, we arrived back at her home. Gertrude was sitting on her front steps as we came into view. She smiled as Swagzo jumped in her lap and purred loudly.
"I can't thank you enough sir for finding my cat and for helping my friend. How can I ever repay you? Oh I know, I will let you have one of these cute kittens! How about this blue one?"
"Sure! But I also want something else" I said as I picked up the kitten and placed it in my backpack.
"Oh? What did you have in mind exactly?"
I pulled Zorial next to me and wrapped my arms around her.
"I want to take your friend here on on an adventure."
"Ok, consider it done."
"HEY! I NEVER AGREED TO ANY OF THIS. HOW DARE OF YOU, GERTRUDE! I'll do it, though."
I jumped for joy as I started skipping home, with an adventure to look forward to and a brand new kitten to raise and call my own.
THE END!

Author notes:.

Hi, all! I was given the suggestion of cats this past week, and I loved the idea so much, I just had to write about it. I took another different approach to this, and it worked out fantastic. Special thanks to one of my newer friends Zorial Diamond for agreeing to let me use her for my story. She is an amazing artist within the Runescape community. I would please ask you to check out her work. She is awesome. <3

I will be posting another poll on Twitter with four ideas I have on my whiteboard, looking for votes on what to write next! So be sure you follow me on Twitter and look out for it. Also follow my friend Zorial @zorialdiamond
