Babu sat staring at the space in the kitchen where the fridge used to be. The family were only a week away from sailing into uncharted seas. If they took the cat with them he would probably be washed overboard and drowned. They tried to find someone who would like to adopt a cat. They thought they had found a family. They piled into the car with Babu in the back seat. They drove to the address where the family lived. The children looked out of the car window - then they saw it. A dog. They looked at Babu. He was crouched behind the car seat. He was terrified. The little girl started crying. then the boy started crying. Then they were all crying. They turned the car and went back to the house without a fridge.
