How the tiger got his stripes.

There was once an orange cat who liked to hunt in the jungle. But he just couldn't beacause he was bright orange and easily spotted. All of the other animals laughed at hime because he couldnt hunt. He tried everything from painting himself green to rolling in the mud. But he still couldnt hunt. One day he was on his way home when he saw something glimmering in the bush. He pulled it out and saw it was a gloden stag that was wounded. Tiger finally thought he caught some thing when suddenly.


A genie appeared out of nowhere and said "I will grant you only one wish". "I wish I could hunt," the orange cat said. The genie suddenly disapeared and The orange cat noticed he had balck stripes. The orange cat couldn't see how black stripes were going to help him hunt. So he set home on his way home he saw a stag. Tiger darted un the bush and growled. "where are you" the stag stutters. The orange cat couldn't believe his ears the stag didn't know where he was. So he got the stag and ate it. He brought the head to the other animals and they were so surprised they gave him a name. They called him tiger. That is how the tiger got his stripes.
