My Pet Story: Little Blanket keeps our hearts warm

We have a small yet mischievous, white-and-orange cat with a long tail and a pair of long ears, which we named Blanket. Why Blanket? Because its presence keeps our hearts warm.

I grew up with lots of furry friends whom I would call family. They brought us happiness and at times, a heart attack or a headache but also heartbreak whenever we had to be apart from each other.
