I have a new member in my family. It is a cat. I call it Keket.

Keket has soft white fur and likes to click its paws. It is also very curious and likes to explore its new surroundings. It seems to like milk and fish a lot and waits eagerly as I prepare its meal.

Besides, the cat that my father took from the road is very important for me. It gives me some lessons about “cat talk”. When it is near me it always purrs. This expresses its friendship with me. When I do my homework it often bumps its head with mine. I know this is the way to say hello. When it is curious it sticks its whiskers stright out and twitches with excitement. Sometimes it approaches something carefully with ears pricked forward. This shows it alert. When it stalks a bird under the banyan tree beside my house it waves its tail. This shows that it is trying to make up its mind whether to creep or pounce. As soon as it has made up its mind the waving usually stops.

Of course, I sometimes get angry with Keket. When it feels threatened it hisses and spits. It thrashes its tail and shows its fangs. Its ears lie flat and its eyes dilate.

Keket seems to like me a lot. I know this because it always follows me wherever I go. I thank God for giving me such nice cat.

One morning, I got up with the feeling that the day was going to be an unlucky one for me. How right it was I found that it was already 6.15 a.m.

I rushed into the bathroom. I did not see a place of soap lying on the floor. I stopped on it and slipped, almost breaking my back in the process.

Then, I went into the dining room for my breakfast. I gulped down the tea without realizing that it was very hot. It burnt my tongue. I spat it out and could not eat anything, because my tongue hurt. I got dressed and rushed to the bus stop.

Unfortunately, I just missed the bus. My heart sank and I knew that I would be late for school.

When I reached school, the teacher took down my name. The teacher scolded me for being late. To my humiliation, I was made to stand out side the class. I was so upset by the incident that I could not study properly, but worse to come.

After school, I was on my way home, when something hard hit me on my head. Someone had thrown a bag of bones out of the window and it landed on me. I was boiling the rage but could do nothing. However, luckily for me, this only raised a small lump on my head.
