My mum’s best friend asked if I wanted to come to the RSPCA, where she works. The RSPCA is the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. they look after animals that have been hurt, or abandoned and find them a new home.
Because I love animals I said yes. I was nervous, on the way, I was thinking about all the cute animals I would see like fluffy dogs, cats and other animals but I would also see scary animals like snakes.
We're almost there, I can see the big sign the says RSPCA, it also says in a tiny font, vets. We pull into the car park and as soon as we get out of the car, Tracy ran over and gave my mum a massive hug.
We start to walk towards the entrance and I see another sign that says staff only, I felt special, but as soon as I looked the other way I felt sad because I saw the adoption sign and all the sad but thankful dogs, cats and animals.
We walk in and my mum gives me big hug and say have a good time. When my mum leaves Trace says let's go, and we start walking, I follow her into the room with all the different animals, some I've never seen before, like different lizards and insects.
She asks me what I wanted to see first, my personal favourite animal are dogs, so I said I would go and see the puppies. As we walk through all the big rooms, I see a little kitten that is so cute I really wanted to see it closer, so I tell Tracy that I would like to see the kitten. We turn around and walk towards the cage it stays in.
As I walk towards the kitten it gets smaller and smaller, and smaller. I finally reach the kitten, I pick it up, really, is this real, it is actually
the size of my palm and I was six, this was the smallest cat ever.
It was almost to small.
We get and keep walking, I see parrots, I see guinea pigs, I also see snakes. We reached the puppy's and they are all excitable Labradors. I climbed into their pen and they all get so excited they are jumping everywhere and barking. I sit down and I get drowned in puppies.
Now I get scared what did she just say, do I want to go and hold a snake. “Ah yes“ I say as soft as I can, “come on then. “ She walked even quicker than ever because she was so excited but for me it was nerve racking, my heart was pumping sonic speed and all of my blood rushes to my head.
We get to the glass cage where the snake lives, ok let's do this. She lifts the snake out and it puts it right on my neck, my bear skin. It's so, wait. What? It isn't slimy. It's dry and scaley. “Okay take it off” now I say. I am relieved that part is over. I spend the rest of the afternoon watching Tracy treating animals and before I know it, I'm sad it's over.
