Character creation

Samson, the fat alley cat

Samson is a fat, black kitty that lives in a alley behind a row of houses. There are two things he loves most; food and a warm, soft place to sleep.


Idea #1

Samson, who is very round and wobbles when he walks, is always sniffing for food. One evening, he sniffs out Mrs. Milgrew's roast beef and he acts very badly, indeed!


Idea #2

Samson, being the portly kitty he is, often has a hard time fitting into places. One evening he discovers his own 'bed' is taken which leads Samson to try out other places. Oh, dear!



Idea #1

The ever hungry Samson finds a way to bust into the Milgrew's kitchen and steal a piece of roast beef off their dinner table. Unfortunately, all the Milgrews are at the table!


Idea #2

Samson wobbles off to bed one night to find that a little kitten is already sleeping in his 'bed'. So he tries find another 'bed'-a basket, a bag, a box-but none of them seem to be just right. What is he to do?
