“Ah still say you squandered a purrfectly good opportunity.”
“What would you have had me do, Mothah? Turn them ovah to the authorities?”
“And why not? They would’ve found their home for them without you havin’ to lift a finger, an’ there may have even been an award in it for you.”
“So that’s what you would have done,” Ezra murmured, his voice and ears dropping. His tail swished. “It’s not like all authorities can be trusted, Mothah, an’ Ah did catch them stealin’.”
“Precisely -- and from us, Ezra!”
“They might have arrested them, Mothah! They’re only kittens!”
“The little beggars would’ve deserved whatevah they got. They stole from us!”
Ezra rolled his blue eyes and, knowing when he couldn’t win against his mother, slunk away. They might have been beggers, having stolen only food from them, but they were so young. They deserved to be with their family, especially as they actually had one who loved them!
Ezra blinks, his mind returning to the present. “Yes, Mothah, Ah did have to do the right thing,” he said, smiling at the family who loves him, “an’ it feels mighty good.” The Seven rode on together, leaving Maude huffing behind them.
