Kitten Smells Good - by Michelle

I am very small. I think about four? Three? I can’t remember. All I know is my aunt has a kitten, but I can’t touch it or play with it. I am so sad. I don’t understand. My mo tries to explain to me that it will make me sick. I am allergic to cats, but I am only little and I don’t understand.

Kittens makes you sick.
Why? Kitten hair makes me sick? Kitten smell makes me sick? I don’t understand. I just want to be able to play with the kitten. In my aunt’s bedroom I can see the kitten playing, but I can’t touch him. I can’t go near him.

I am sad.

There must be a way to fix this. I think hard. There must be a way to make the kitten smell good.

I have an idea. Now I’m happy again. I go call my mom and aunt. They must come quickly! I am so happy. I have fixed the problem. I have made the kitten smell good!

They come to look.

I have tied kitten to the underneath of my aunt’s bed with wool I got from somewhere. Then I have proceeded to pour ALL my aunt’s perfumes onto the kitten. There is a very angry, very wet, very aromatic kitten hanging from the bed springs in a maze of wool.

The kitten survived, but I would always be allergic to them. I also learnt that perfume doesn’t work… but it does make kittens really smell good. ;-)
