It was a cold, dark, rainy autumn. My mother and I were walking along a dirty street. My heart was sad – problems in the family, at work. Suddenly we saw a kitten, dirty and poor. He was running away from a huge car, the driver of which did not notice the kitten and almost ran over it. I don’t know if we just felt sorry for the animal or it was in some way similar to us, but the poor kitten turned up in our home. After a while it became a healthy and beautiful cat, happy with its life. I realize that it’s difficult to believe, but after that our family’s problems have just disappeared! And we became fully satisfied with our lives. The cat still lives with us and it has become my best friend.
I can hardly call this story a cheerful one, but I think that this moment is the most memorable in my life. This is the magic moment of my life, as we’ve saved a life and have got a new friend.
