A cat in a basket
A drawing of a girl carrying her cat in a basket. I used pastels to color it. I have always wanted to take care of cats as pets, but my parents don't allow me to.
Last year, a mother cat had given birth to her kittens under our deck in the backyard. We didn't know about it and continued to play on the deck. After a few days, one of the kitten wobbled through our backyard door into our house, from underneath the deck (when her mom was gone for a while). I quickly shut the door behind it, so it wouldn't get away. I thought I could keep it as my pet! But then I realized that the mom cat would be looking for her baby, so my sister and I played with it for an hour and then let it go under the deck. I haven't seen the kitten again!
