Chapter 2: Spike's New Pet

Spike stood frozen to the spot looking completely dumbfounded. This had to be a dream. He hadn't seen anything like this before! What could it possibly be? It materialized out of nowhere and it looked like a giant orange cat standing on its hind legs, but he talked like an Equestrian! He could only be one thing:

"Are you an alien from outer space that knows our language and is going to brainwash everypony and take over Equestria?" Spike asked nervously.

"Equestria?" Said Cool Cat, "Everypony? I don't know what those are. But I looooooove playing pretend! Can I be the alien?"

Spike just stood there looking confused. This guy couldn't be serious. How could he pretend to be an alien when he already WAS an alien? Then he got a brilliant idea. What if Twilight let him keep him as a pet? That would be so cool! He wanted to show him to her right away.

"Where am I?" Asked Cool Cat.

"Follow me Mr. Alien," Said Spike, "I'll show you around and tell you all about this place."

So Cool Cat followed Spike out of the cave, leaving an unconscious Rarity behind. Spike explained to him that he was in Equestria. Cool Cat followed him all the way to a castle made of crystal. On his way, he didn't see any people, only — what? Were they crossbreeds of alpaccas and cats? What were they exactly? And they went about their daily life just like normal human people do. Was he in Dreamland again?

"Here we are, Mr. Alien," Said Spike, "Home, sweet home."

"Wooooooow! This place is Groovy!" Said Cool Cat, looking at the castle in awe.

Spike opened the door, and called, "Twiliiiiiiight! Where are you? I have something you should probably see!"

"I'm in here!" A voice answered back.

They entered a room. In the center of the room, there stood a table surrounded by seven chairs. Sitting at one of the chairs was Twilight Sparkle, and she appeared to be reading. Cool Cat, who was still playing pretend, was reminded of King Arthur, and the Knights of the Round Table. Then that reminded him of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

"Ooooh! I love this game," Cool Cat exclaimed, shaking his leg, "Can I be the Killer Rabbit? No! I want to be a knight that says 'nee!' NEE! NEE!"

Alarmed by his loud, annoying voice, Twilight Sparkle looked up. She jumped at the sight of him.

"Spike?" She asked firmly, "What-I mean who is your friend?"

"He's my new pet alien!" He replied, "pleeeease Twilight," He got onto his knees and pleaded, "Can I keep him? Pleeeeeease?"

"Spike," She said, "Would you leave us alone for a minute."

Spike left the room.

"I have three questions, and I want you to answer them honestly." She said, "Who are you?"

"My name is Cool Cat!"

"Not to be rude, but what are you?"

"I'm half human, half cat! My mama's a cat, and Daddy Derek is a human!"

"That's impossible!" Twilight said to herself, "Humans are mythical creatures!" She spoke up and asked, "Where are you from Cool Cat?"

"California!"

"Where is that?"

"In America! And America is on the planet Earth!"

"I need to write a letter to Princess Celestia, maybe she can help us find you a way back home." She said, " Spike! You can come back in, and I'm going to need you to write a letter to the princess."

Spike came into the room, and started writing down what Twilight was saying. Then he burped on the scroll, and it disappeared.

"So Twilight," He said hopefully, "can I keep him?"

"Sure Spike," She answered, "but only until we figure out who he is, and how we can get him back home."

"This is going to be so much FuuuuUUUUn!" Said Cool Cat.
