‘What’s that?’ Jazz’s mum stared, eyes wide, at the thing that stood next to Jazz.
‘I don’t know,’ Jazz confessed. ‘I found it in the park. I think it’s lost.’ She glanced down at the furry creature. Was it a dog? It didn’t look like one. Or a cat. It was too big for a rabbit, too small for a bear. And really…well, what kind of creature had blue fur? Proper navy blue, like a school blazer.
It looked back up at her with intelligent orange-rimmed eyes. ‘Prrraaawp?’ it said, in a voice that sounded a little like a cat’s but with a metallic ring to it that reminded Jazz of the sound the metal plug made banging in the sink.
‘Can we keep it?’ Jazz asked her mum. Her mum looked doubtful. ‘Oh, I don’t know, love. I mean, what does it eat, for a start? And what if it’s…savage? Does it have sharp teeth?’
As if it understood, the blue creature said, ‘Prrraaawp’ again and opened its mouth in something like a smile. Its teeth were small and rounded.
‘There, you see?’ said Jazz. ‘It’s completely harmless.’

Jazz took the funny looking creature into her arms and laid it down on the end of her bed. She was soooooo excited, what would her friends say tomorrow at school! Jazz wondered where the creature came from and what it could do? She ran back down stairs to fetch some food for her new friend, but she didn’t know what was about to happen. When Jazz skipped back into her room the creature wasn’t anywhere to be seen.
“If you want to keep it, you must clean it, feed it and tidy up after it…will you do those things?” Asked Jazz’s mum. Jazz replied, “YES, YES!” Eagerly, she grabbed the furry navy blue thing saying “I’m going to call you Harry.” As fast as a flash, Jazz rushed to the pet store to find out: what he eats, what he sleeps on and how to clean him. Later that day, Jazz ate her dinner and then after her putting Harry in the shower, took about three minutes to get changed into her pyjamas.

As the door opened a huge furry paw with the sharpest nails she had ever seen grab her neck and pulled her inside the room, she yelled “help me” “call 911”.The door shut rapidly and made a huge gunshot like noise as it hit the frame. As Jazz's mum listened carefully she heard a window break and rushed into the room where she found to her surprise that the animal was gone and Jazz was safe but badly injured. They called the police and emergency services as well as a local zoo which told them and the police that they should just finish it off. The police end it up calling a helicopter to chase the animal down, after about 7 hours they found the animal next to a small cliff and deployed animal safety officers that shot the animal with a tranquilizer dart. As the animal started to doze off it tripped on a big rock and rolled down the hill which they were on and fell off the cliff and died by an impact on the ground.
