Kiki walked over to Lili and licked her cheek. Lili continued to sleep.

“I can’t bark now because master is watching the news. Why not I pull her by the tail, while you pull away your pillow?” Mimi agreed to Kiki’s suggestion. While Kiki pulled Lili’s tail, and Mimi pulled her pillow, Lili flipped around and grabbed the pillow.

“See! She refused to get up! What do I do now?” Mimi whined.

Just then, their mistress called out, “Macaroni and cheese is ready!” Lili immediately leaped off the pillow and ran into the kitchen.
