  1. Thanks for your comments Ruth. I wanted it to have a moral for small children without it making it a sad story about a pet. I was saddened to read your comment re busy road and cats. It happened to a kitten near here and the owners’ response was to rush out and buy 2 more – words fail me. Some people just should not be allowed to keep pets.

    Thanks Ruth. You’ve spurred me on to write more!!!!!

  2. Such a nice little story with a moral for the boys and girls reading it and a happy ending too. Thank you Josephine.
    I don’t like bells on cats either Marc, they have sensitive ears which must get irritated with the clanging.
    I think we will always be upset reading about cats on roads.
    A beautiful cat who lived near here was sent to live with someone near a busy road, when his people emigrated. It was so sad how he was run over, he started out across the road, saw the car and turned back but then for some reason he dashed back out into the road and was killed.
    It was his fate that day and nothing could change it.

  3. This makes me very sad. I am glad she was the better for it and not worse. I don’t think cats should have bells. I’m just glad the story ended nicely. The idea of her being stuck on a busy road has personal meaning to me I guess. I always imagine Red got stuck the other side of the main road and couldn’t get back in the morning because it get super busy around 5 or 6 am. I think maybe he panicked and ran accross when he shouldn’t have and got hit. He was always careful around cars – almost too careful. It must have been out of character, fear or something that got him hit. The other side of that bit of road looks very nice and green and at night its totally silent and I know he must have gone there. Maybe he fell asleep and woke up after the cars started and got scared and panicky and just ran for it back towards his safe zone.
