The chubby unicorn, the narwhal & the dog

There once lived a chubby unicorn, a small dog and a narwhal in an apartment.
The narwhal liked to bake pretzels and the unicorn liked to read.
The dog however, hadn't really found a hobby. He was walking around the apartment, not really knowing what to do with his time. He tried reading some of the unicorns books but they where too boring. He tried making pretzels with the narwhal but his just ended up looking like dogpoo.

One day,  the chubby unicorn needed more money for books and the narwhal needed more money for salt so they decided to rent out the apartments smallest room. Their new roommate was a cat with backache. He had a tough job lifting cheese into shelves. He needed a special mattress to sleep on or his back would hurt. The cat was really friendly but he was constantly complaining about his back.

One rainy day the chubby unicorn was reading about kittens (in order to understand their new roommate better) and the narwhal was resting on the bureau drying his pretzels. The cat was lying on the rug trying to stretch his back. The dog was just walking around, not knowing what to do.
He walked up to the cat and started to rub his back. The cat purred and the dog was really happy that he was doing something useful. He kept on rubbing the cats back for an hour and then the cat told him that it didn't hurt anymore.

After that, everyone who lived in the apartment knew what to do with their time. The chubby unicorn kept on reading. The narwhal kept baking pretzels. And the dog spend his time massaging the cats back after the cats long days lifting cheese on shelves.
