Soopy in the fireplace

I remember many years ago when Christmas arrived at a very trying time for me and my family. The money I could afford for gifts would not fill the family's stockings and I found myself with empty hands two days before Christmas Eve.

Walking down the mall of a small shopping center I saw two kittens in a pet shop. Their eyes were pleading me to take them home.
