Today the group decided to have a quiet day. They found a nice spot in the grass shaded by trees, spread out a blanket and just took it easy. As Sassy worked on her blog the wind kicked up, sending Roscoe's hat tumbling into the air. Sassy pounced to grab it, throwing herself off balance and landing (with her laptop and Roscoe's hat) in a pool of quick sand.
Roscoe, not thinking his rescue plan through, immediately jumped in while throwing his paws around Sassy in an effort to save her. Quickly they both started sinking.
Excitedly Momo sprang to her feet and grabbed a near by life preserver. Underestimating her own straight and pumped up with adrenaline, she threw the life preserver into the pool of quicksand. But Momo threw the life preserver so hard that she threw herself off balance and tumbled into the quicksand as well.
Watching his three friends sinking, Opus knew he had to act fast. Quickly he climbed on top of the "Danger" sign and lowered a rope down with his tail. Without a second to waste, he ordered his three friends to grab a hold of the rope at once.
With all of his might, Opus used his tail to pull his friends to safely. But those extra cookies Roscoe had eaten at lunch proved to be too much; the rope (or Opus's tail) broke, sending all four cats tumbling down into the quicksand.
With Karl and Ruis back at home, there was no one around to hear their cries for help. One by one they sank deeper and deeper into the sand....
