Not a Pet, But . . .

Our mother’s house in Cholon, Vietnam, is infested with mice. Every now and then I hear my sister scream–she has just seen a mouse. Fed up, she decides to keep a male black cat. It is our belief that just the feline’s presence would keep the rodents at bay. In a couple of months, I do not hear her scream anymore.
