My sister T and her friend R were walking to class the other day. As they passed one neighborhood home, a friendly cat came out looking for attention. R obliged and reached down to pet her.
A little boy came out of the house.
"Do you like her? Her name is Lizzy, and you can have her if you want."
Another boy, slightly smaller, appears and frantically waves the first boy over. A whispered conversation ensues.
The boy came back, a little more subdued.
"Never mind. My brother wants to keep his cat."
