Sadness Patrol


Sadness Patrol


My kitten Peanut always seems to know when I am sad. The other day, when I came home from school, I was really sad because some people had been teasing me quite badly. I was upstairs all alone, when Peanut jumped up on to the bed and snuggled down with me. As soon as I cheered up she jumped off and continued with her own business.

The next day, the same thing happened and I was in the TV room alone. Peanut again jumped up and made me feel better. Maybe it is just chance or do cats really know how you feel!
