I liked your story and it really got the message through to us. We all at some time felt like that outsider and Thank the Lord He took us in and cleaned us up.
Your story was sweet and deep. I think we have all felt like Black at some point in our lives. So, he was relatable. Also, I've read that fiction stories written from a pet's perspective are VERY marketable right now. I had never read one before. I really liked yours.
This would be a very nice story to tell or read to small children. It has a draw to it.

There was one sentence, though, that could easily be fixed up. Read it out loud to your self and you will see where it is.
I echo the previous comments that this is a submissible story. It does need a tweak or two though and reading out loud always helps. Very well done.
This was so sweet! A good lesson too.
Congratulations on winning the Quarterly Award, Kayla.

I'm happy that this mistreated cat finally got a home. I liked the tie-in to Christianity (definitely not preachy). I'm sure kids would enjoy it.

A couple years ago I heard that CEF was no longer using the term "black with sin" because African American or Black children associated with their skin color. (They changed it to dark with sin instead).
