Cat and mouse
“I did something I shouldn’t have done,” Hoodie said, smiling. “I stole Nora’s cat.”
“Is that what the kids are calling it these days?” Mike asked.
Hoodie laughed. “No! I stole her cat. You know, a cat – a grown kitten. He looked skinny and there was no food in his dish. Nora said he ran out of cat food, but she let him outside to hunt mice. I told Nora I’d take the cat, but she wanted to sell him to me. That was Saturday. Sunday morning I went to her apartment, opened the door and the cat came to me.”
“Awww,” Barb purred. “What’s the cat’s name?”
“Mouse,” Hoodie said with a chuckle. “I gave Mouse to Kitty. She just loves him.”
“So now he’s Kitty’s cat, Mouse,” Barb pointed out.
“I feel bad about stealing Mouse, but I doubt Nora will miss him. If she does, I’ll have to pay her, and I know what she’ll do with the money,” Hoodie said with a sigh.

Today I will accept doing the right thing can bring complications.
