"It's your turn." Lou said to Ozzie.
"I did it yesterday. You go."
"One of you go before RJ really starts howling." Heather said.
"Why doesn't someone without a child go?" Verne suggested
"I will go!" Tiger announced.
"For real?" Stella asked him.
"Yes." Tiger answered in a heroic voice. "I am brave. I am strong. I will go."
"Miracles do happen." Penny muttered.
"He is not that bad. He's got a heart of gold."
"I know, dear."
Stella turned slowly. She stroked her belly, smiling slightly. She was pregnant, but wanted to wait for for the right time to announce it.
Outside, Tiger nudged his head against RJ's. RJ gasped and his paws brushed against Tiger's coat. He patted at it and calmed. Tiger wondered what it would be like if and when he had children.
Tiger saw that he wouldn't be curling up with his sweetheart anytime soon. He lay by the raccoon and allowed himself to drift off to sleep.
D'aww! I really think tiger the Cat is a very sweet animal. He kind of has a mask, don't you think? Hey, Chicky, why don't you get an account? It would be awesome! REVIEWS AND CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM ARE VERY WELCOME!
