ant another fish. I thought that Cuddles is good enough. I remembered that in Sunday school, our teacher said, God forgives our sins, so we should forgive others who do sin against us. name is Jane, and I have a cat named Cuddles. He is the most cutest cat in the world. He loves to play with my mother's yarn, and play with rubber or golf balls.

somtimes my friends come over to play with him, too. Sometimes he can be a bit rough with me or anyone else. He has sharp claws. He likes jump up at me, and my friends, so I have to be careful that he doesn't hurt anybody.

I also have a pet fish named guppy. His fish bowl was located on the top of the entertainment unit. Cuddles loves to watch the fish swim.

One day when I was heading out the door to go to school,Cuddles ran outside when I had the door open. I ran after him. Our neighbour's cat ran after him, too. I was frantically running after him. When I got a hold of cuddles, he bit me on the nose. I took him the house, and I told my mother what had happened. She took him downstairs in the basement for time out. His litter box, and food were downstairs, so I knew that he would be okay when I am at school.

Later on that day, when I came home from school, I found Cuddles on my bed, and he looked guilty. I petted him, and told him that I forgive him for running outside.

One day when my mother was about to clean the entertainment unit, she told me to put the fish bowl in my room, and so I did. I placed Guppy with his fish bowl on my book case in my room. I made sure that my bedroom door was shut, so that cuddles won't try to eat the fish.

I helped my mother dust the furniture in the house. I had to help vacuum the floor, too. I ran up use the bathroom, and then I went back into my bedroom, got changed, and then I went downstairs.

I told my mother that i would be at my friend, Molly's house. She said that it was okay just as long as I am back home for supper. Molly and I played some wii games, and then I had to go home.

As soon as I ate supper, I ran up to my room, and I realized that I must have forgotten to close my bedroom door. The door was open, and cuddles looked up at me. He knocked over the book case, plus the fish bowl, which was half full of water, I screamed when I didn't see Guppy in the fishbowl..
Ahhhhh! My mother suddenly ran upstairs, and asked,
"What's wrong,Jane? What's the screaming all about?"
"I think Guppy is gone. I think Cuddles ate him up."cry, and then my mother comforted me, and said,
"You know Jane. This wasn't all his fault"
began to cry.
"You should have kept your bedroom door closed at all times when you are not in your room."
I nodded my head as i shed tears. I missed Guppy. He looked so cute in that fish bowl swimming around. I loved Cuddles, too, but I couldn't forgive for what he had done that night. My mother took him downstairs for the night.
Next day before I went to school, I didn't say goodbye for good morning like I always did to Cuddles. I was still mad at him for eating the fish.
During recess, I told molly what had happened. She understood what I was going through. She said she used to have a cat who did the same thing. he knocked over the aquarium, and then she got into trouble for not watching the cat. I could just imagine what Molly had gone through. It must have been an ordeal for her than it was for me.
"My cat ate about 4 gold fish. I had to clean up the mess from the fish aquarium. I was mad at my cat, but I realized that cat's eat fish. I eventually forgave him. He was a friendly family pet. You should forgive Cuddles, and give him the attention that he has been getting from you, Jane."
I went home, and I took Molly's advice. I hugged Cuddles, and then I told him that it was my fault for not watching him with the fish.

Before I said my prayers at night, I remembered that our sunday school teacher said that we must forgive others who sin against us, just like God forgives us. I had to forgive myself for not watching Cuddles. I forgave Cuddles because he was a friendly cat. It was part of nature that he eats fish.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
