I think I was either attempting to drape all the kittens on my shoulders or was throwing a tantrum. I canít recall. I wasnít one for making a scene but I do remember how fervently I wanted, how palpable the desire, how desperate and determined I was. I would not leave the store without a cat. My dad insisted we take care of the groceries and if I still wanted a kitten after we could consider it. This may have worked on other children, but I doubt it. Thirty now, I know what my father was hoping and how pathetic.
