First and foremost, Sarah doesn't want to be there but she has to go out of her comfort zone to help Peter find a doctor and to find her father. On the other hand Peter just follows along, sleeps, and cares deeply for Surf Cat. On page 55 chapter 8 it states, “He pulled out a can of cat food. God, Peter! Out of all things.
This proves that although James is trying to or into his family, his emotion(s) put a major roadblock in his path. Another reason that supports this idea is on page 4. While and after the kitten is dying, he lets his emotions pour over and doesn’t care what his family sees of him, only about the dead kitten. He tells
While and after the kitten is dying, he lets his emotions pour over and doesn’t care what his family sees of him, only about the dead kitten. He tells himself, “I don’t want to be a man” Before this sentence he also states many other statements that are contradictory to what his family thinks he should think. The protagonist directly tells a member of his family how he feels, which is showing that his emotions have made the decision about whether he is going to fit into his family or not. This shows that he decides to get straight when an animal is dead and his family is involved. The end of the story proves that the characters emotions are the strongest when an animal is dead due to the actions of his family.
In Zeina Condon’s narrative paper, she writes about her kitten receiving erections after being neutered. More importantly, she mentions how she did not know what was going on with her cat, and had to discover that he was simply having erections after being neutered. Almost all of the facts and events within Zeina’s narrative were true. However, her paper suggests that she, and her family, were extremely concerned and worried about her kitten’s safety and health. After thorough investigation, Zeina and her family did not experience a significant amount of concern or fear, if any.
This is ironic, because though Sarty was defiant towards his family, and broke his loyalty with pure intentions, what his father said proved to be true. At the end of the story, Sarty faced a dilemma, though he had good intentions, he was still left with nowhere to go, and no one to turn to. Billingslea briefly discusses the irony of this
In “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Scout Eliminates tension between a lynch mob and Atticus, Jem, and herself using compassion and empathy. Another situation that she is in that she uses her compassion and sympathy in the story is when Dill ran away from home because his mother and new father does not pay attention to him as much, and decides to sleep under a bench during night. Scout tried to convince her father, Atticus, for Dill to stay with them because Scout did not want to see Dill be transported to the orphanage. Thanks for the use of her compassion and empathy, Dill is able to stay in Scout’s home, and avoids staying out in the streets and the orphanage.
It is almost like he is numb inside. Ironically, when Charlie realizes his beloved Aunt Helen had sexually abused him, he has a nervous breakdown, but his friends are there for him. “The best thing about Patrick is that even when you’re in a hospital, he doesn’t change” (Chbosky 209). Still, his immense love for her led him to suppress the memories of these events, even though subconsciously it was impacting his life and who he had become. Charlie concludes that he no longer needs to write his letters as a release for his emotions.
There are few depressing events that occur during the course of the tale: for instance, the loss of the narrator’s former self, the abuse his other animals and wife, and his home due to the black cat’s occurring involvement. Despite the losses, however, the narrator surprisingly introduces a new black cat into his new home. The narrator thinks this will get rid of all his former dreadful memories and emotions of Pluto by introducing the new cat into his life, the narrator receives the exact opposite symbolizing the misfortune of the black cat have on the narrator. The text can provide evidence to this by stating “[t]his was just the reverse of what I had anticipated; but- I know not how or it – its evident fondness for myself rather disgusted
When George warns Lennie not to drink too much water because he’ll get sick (Steinbeck 3), that shows that he cares for Lennie’s health. Another example of George caring for Lennie’ health is when George threw the dead mouse away that Lennie was petting (Steinbeck 9) because he knew that the mouse could’ve carried diseases and transmit them to Lennie. If George wasn’t a good friend, why would George care if Lennie gets sick or not? Another reason why George was a good friend to Lennie was that George tried to keep Lennie happy. Whenever Lennie wanted George to talk about their future farm, George never said no, he knew it would make Lennie happy.
The cat’s meow was weak because he was basically homeless until found by the boy. It took him time to recover his “meow” and his personality. It is definitely true that the boy loves his cat very much and the cat probably loves the boy even more.
Hi Naphetta, Just like you, I am really like animals as well. Before I came to the U.S, I had 4 dogs and 2 cats, and I’m really enjoy the time with them. However, when I came to the U.S six years ago, I stop to think about to adopt a dog because I think it is really difficult to take care of a dog or a cat in the U.S (My apartment office didn’t allow me to have one). Also, I’m so afraid if the pet die because it’s so sad and hurt for a long time. Like my uncle, three years ago, his cat died after five years live with him.
When George takes a dead mouse from Lennie, Lennie remarks that a lady used to give him mice to pet; and George must remind him that the “lady” is Lennie’s own Aunt Clara. George and Lennie seem like an entirely contrasting pair at first glance, but further observation yields several noteworthy similarities. Most notably, they are both driven by the same ultimate aspiration in life—to live independently on their own land. Constantly, Lennie asks George whether he will still be allowed to tend to the rabbits on their future farm despite his missteps. After Lennie horrifyingly disfigures Curley’s hand, his first and only question to George is about the rabbits, not about the egregious act he has just committed.
