I remember the saddest day of my life was when my dad told me that I couldn't keep our cat and it's liter. He said we have enough mouths to feed as it is. So the whole family jumped into the car and we drove down to a big dairy farm. Well, actually, my grandparents didn't jump but they got in.
I cried most of the way home. Then all of a sudden Grandpa started crying too.
"You'll miss Tiger and her kittens too, won't you Grandpa?" I asked.
"Not as much as I'll miss your grandmother!"
"Oh dry up you two", my daddy told us. "It's a dairy farm. They can use cats to catch mice and there will be plenty of milk for them and Grandma too."
