FFfAW — Hello Kitty


Rachel implored Doris to take one of the kittens off her hands. Doris had always wanted a kitten, so she said she would. “Just take the cat to the vet for its shots, buy a litter box, some kitty litter, cat food, and a few cat toys,” Rachel explained.

It was love at first sight when Doris picked up one of the precious little kittens. The small kitten she chose was the runt of the litter, which is why Doris, a relatively small girl for age, was drawn to her.

Doris got in the car, put the kitty on her lap, put on her seat belt, and drove home. When she got there, she picked up her new kitten, who she named “Hello,” and ran into the house.

“This is ‘Hello Kitty,’ Mom,” Doris exclaimed. “Isn’t she beautiful?”

“You gotta get that thing outta here before your step-father gets home, young lady,” her mother said. “You know he’s allergic to cats.”

“Why did you marry him?” Doris cried. “He’s ruining my life!”

    Is this how ‘Hello Kitty’ was created?

    He must be ruining her life with more than just his allergy to cats.

      Or maybe she is just a typical teenage girl.

    Step parents seem to take on the mantle of evil no matter where you are…

    I don’t like animals in my house. Glad my parent agree with me.

        You have a cat? I know about the dog. Sandi also has one, Jim used to have one.

    Cat fur allergy is quite dangerous. I have one in the family! So no cats and dogs for us. And its no step father either…but my better half who has it! I can feel what Rachel might be going through…

    She should not worry too much about the step-dad situation. Hello kitty will soon take care of him for her 🙂
