The tenth good thing about Barney
Barney was a cat. He died last Friday. And everyone was sad.
They did what most people do when a cat they like dies. They had a funeral. And then they tried to think of good things about him. They wanted to remember him as he was; and they thought about some other things, too.
Whenever a cat dies, or a dog, or a bird, or any friend, it can be a little like this story about Barney. since dying is as usual as living, it's good to know about him.
