Dad and Lisi each carried one of the furry kittens home. When Andrew saw them, he shouted, "Hip, hip hooray!" and jumped with joy. Mother came running out to see what was going on. When she saw the kittens, she was not so pleased. "I thought we agreed, no more pets!" Father shrugged his shoulders. "I couldn`t bear to see the kittens sent away after the children worked so hard to save them." Before the Mother could say anything, she heard someone calling. "Excuse me." It was Mrs. Green. "Perhaps I can help. What if the kittens come live with me? I am all by myself and would enjoy their company. The children could play with them whenever they like." "That`s perfect!" cried Mother. Lisi and Andrew laughed and gave each other a big hug. Later that evening, when Mother and Father came to kiss Lisi goodnight, she asked sleeply, "Mother, would we have been allowed to keep the kittens if Mrs. Green hadn`t wanted them?" "Yes, Lisi, I think so," said Mother smiling. Dad also smiled. You see, it is quite possible to love someone very much - even if she was responsible for putting the wallpaper with the blue stripes in your green bedroom.
