So sad, but I like the hope at the end.

There were a few things about this that disturbed me, though. It seems as if Jason didn't get any consequences for a VERY serious act. I'd be very hesitant about bringing a new kitten into the home until this obviously troubled child got professional help...and I'm frightened for his baby sister unless he does get help. (I realize this is fiction, but I work with children like this...and your story sends up red flags all over the place).
The story is fiction, but the issues are real. I worked with Pre-K kids for 3 years, and know the heartache and confusion parents go through as they realize their child needs some extra help and love. The story was to bring about a glimpse into a famiily's life.
Jessica, I just wanted to let you know that you did very well in the Challenge this week. Even though you didn't quite make it into the winners' circle, you made it into the highest rankings for Level 1, placing 12th for the level.

The competition is always quite intense in Level 1, so well done. Keep up the great writing.

If you would like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can see them here:
