Washing Day

by Kath Middleton
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 27/03/2018

I gathered up my young daughter’s clothes from the washing basket to put them in the washer. Sweep, the kitten, thought it was all a game, leaping up to pull socks and vests from my arms.

“Get away, cat,' I said, laughing as I pulled the clothes from his needle-sharp teeth. I set the machine and made coffee.

That’s when I noticed the little black and white face going round in the glass window.

I’d put Sweep in the wash! Panicked, I stopped and opened the machine.

A glove puppet flopped wetly to the floor. Sweep pounced on it.
