Kittens in a Box.......

5 kittens in a box.
Mewing.
Their owner put a sign over the
plain
cardboard
box.
"Free kittens" it read.
5 free kittens....
no longer wanted by the family,
Mewing.
Bessy and her mom were walking to the park,
Bessy saw the box
and the sign
that read
"Free kittens"
and heard
the kittens
Mewing.
"Mummy, look!" Bessy pointed.
She looked
saw the
box
read the
sign
heard the kittens
Mewing.
She knew
immediately
what Bessy wanted.
"Bessy, you know we can't have any animals in the house."
"But why???"
"I don't want to have to clean up all the hair."
"I do it!"
"Bessy, you don't know how, you're too small to use the vacuum."
"They're free, mummy!"
"We'll still have to pay for the vet, the food, the toys, all that."
Bessy stood silently, not replying.
Her mom sighed,
"Come on Bess, lets go to the park."
Bessy followed, knowing her mom wouldn't agree.
Her mom led the way,
but,
heard the kittens
Mewing
louder.
"Take us with you." they purred,
"You'll love us.... please?"
Bessy's mom almost changed her mind,
almost turned around,
almost obeyed the kittens' pleading mews.
Bessy tugged at her mom's hand.
She had spotted her friends on the playground,
they looked like they were having tons of fun,
and Bessy was eager to join.
Bessy led the rest of the way to the park
as the kittens'
Mewing
faded
into
the
distance.
