Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

What a pain! This morning, our cat Cachou climbed up the cherry tree which is in the middle of our garden, and since then, she's refused to climb back down [from it]! She's been stuck up there for more than five hours. We tried to lure her by putting a bowl of milk at the foot of the tree, but she just meowed a bit. Marie went to get the ladder in the garage, but if that doesn't work, we'll go and ask the neighbours for help or we'll call the emergency vet clinic!

Clever stuff happening!
