Once upon a time there was a Royal Owl.
She was zany and fun but a little sad.
She needed a friend.
Her brother married Royal Pussycat.
Royal Owl liked Royal Pussycat and they became friends.
They were not just Royal Sisters-in-law.
They were Royal Friends.
Royal Pussycat moved to Colorado.
That made Royal Owl sad.
But they still see each other.
And talk on the phone sometimes
(even though Royal Pussycat doesn’t like to talk on the phone).
And they write letters too.
