about this story

"Finally! Sunlight! How long were we riding on that thing?" Harriet asked Walter as they climbed the stairs from the subway station.

"I don't know," replied Walter, "But it felt like hours! I'm just glad we are out of that tunnel and we can enjoy the sunlight while we wait."

"How long do you think they will be in there?" asked Harriet as she circled twice before finding a comfortable position.

Walter stretched and enjoyed the warmth of the hood on his back and the sunshine on his belly. He peered across the road at the building where his human disappeared and replied, "I'm not sure. But the last time we came here we waited till the sky turned dark."

"What is that place? And why are those humans taking their pets in there? Have you ever been in there?"

"I've never been in there before," replied Walter, "but that's where you came from."

Harriet was more curious than ever. Just then, she saw her human walking towards, cradling a miniature version of herself. "Harriet. Walter. Meet Simon, your new brother!"

Harriet and Walter were not even bothered by the long ride home. They were too fascinated with the new addition to their family. When they finally arrived home, it was still daylight, so they were all able to play in the yard and chase the other critters - one of their favorite games to play.

"Oh great," thought Surly as he gazed across the lawn. "The humans brought home another cat!"
