Choice (A) is incorrect because "jogged" doesn't get across how scared this cat was.
If we were scared of something, would we simply jog away from it? Nah, and neither would a cat.
(D) doesn't work either. To saunter is to walk in a slow, relaxed manner, which doesn't fit.
Choice (C) suggests the word "trotted."
Though a trot is faster than a saunter, it still doesn't get across the sense of urgency we need.
Choice (B) is the best answer. To dart is to run somewhere suddenly or rapidly, which
fits perfectly here.
