A few days later, he asked his mum if he could have a kitten. His mummy replied no, because cats were still not allowed in the building. Tom was upset and and shouted saying it not fair, i cannot have a pet; because we we live in a flat. His mummy said, let me see what i can do for you Tom.
    The next day when Tom was at school, his mummy decided to surprise him. When Tom came home from school, he could see a cage on the dinner table. Tom got excited and said mummy have you got me a something, his mummy said to Tom, have a look and see what is inside the cage. When Tom looked he could see a small orange hamster, Tom was very happy and said his name will be Rusty mummy. Tom said to his mummy, thank you mummy.
