My inspiration comes from all the SMSes in the newspaper. It is not necessary to mention the name of that newspaper, because everybody knows it. Some people write about poverty, sickness, sports, abuse, attacks, work shortage or politics. Why is life so complicated!? There are people who are rich and some poor, ugly or beautiful. There is jealousy between races – that reminded me of a story I wrote for young kids to think about. The story’s name is plain and simple, just “Cat”:
” In a mansion lived a woman who had 4 cats. Three cats were grey, the fourth cat was beautiful with colours of white, black and ginger. This cat always laughed at by the other three and mentioned how beautiful she was and how ugly they were. One day the ginger cat slept under a bed in the owner’s bedroom. There were many flies and Mosquitoes in that room and the woman sprayed in the room with a toxic spray. At the end of the day the cat came out of the room but what a disaster. The spray had been very strong and all the cats hair fell out. When the other cats saw her, they laughed at her. Ashamed the ginger cat ran away into the woods. There she stayed 2 or 3 months until all the hair grew back. But now her haircolour was also grey and very dull. The once beautiful cat eventually trotted home, very ashamed. When the other cats saw her, they did not laugh, but comforted her. You see “Never make fun of somebody else”!
