Little Tombi was first kept in the school yard with the nine other cats the students looked after, but was soon adopted as the third-graders, quietly sitting through lessons while being good company to the teacher and her students.

All it takes is one idiot to cause so much sadness to many, including the puss!!!
Glad it turned out well for Tombi in the end!
Every school should care for at least one kittie!!!

TY Barb

I'm so glad the parents changed their minds and Tombi got to stay. I agree Animae. Every school should care for a kittie.
Thank you Barb.

A cat's presence is loving and soothing. They can be playful and cheering too. What a good idea to have a "class" cat. I'm so glad I read it to the end that the complaining parent had a change of heart. It seems all are benefiting from the love.

So happy it ended well with the cat and the students. Wonderful story! Can you imagine if every school had a cat? But for sure, many humans would oppose... Shared everywhere!
