English - Copywork & Dictation : Gooney - How the Cat was Consumed by the Cow

From Gooney Bird Greene by Lois Lowry...

Catman had never seen a cow before. Now he watched with facination as the cow moved slowly toward the other corner of the meadow.

He liked the way the cow walked, heavily and with determination.

He liked the way the cow smelled, of thick sunwarmed cowhide and meadow flowers.

And, as he scampered along behind the cow and the cow noticed and mooed, Catman liked the way the cow sounded. It was comforting, the low, throaty sound of a moo, and in the background was the buzzing of flies.

Catman began to purr.
