  • "He ran after little cats. He ran after every little cat that came into the yard. And he chased the little cat out of the yard. This was a bad, bad thing. But it was all Pickles could find to do."
  • Sometimes, Pickles was a bad cat. He would chase around other cats for fun.

  • Pickles was a stray cat. Mrs. Goodkind went out of her way to feed him and offer him a place in her home, which he decided was not a good fit for him.
  • I read in a magazine about a lady who took care of stray cats. She took care of over 30 stray cats. She fed them and some even lived in her house!
