Catherine followed Andrew past a fence that kept grazing goats on a hillside. The goats were fairly quiet except for one little black male goat that
seemed to stare at Catherine while making a pitifully sad and human sounding cry. The little goat even lifted a hoof and scratched at the fence.
"What's wrong with that little guy?'' Catherine asked with wide eyes.
"oh, he lost his mother.'' Andrew answered.
"how sad, what happened?'' Catherine asked.
"umm...lets not talk about that.'' Andrew replied a bit nervously and gave the façade of smile and laugh. "This is home.'' He said at the door to the

Catherine just wanted to leave at this point as the smell and flies were making her nauseous. "Oh, I just remembered, I'm expected home soon... so
sorry and it was nice meeting you, but I've got to go.'' Catherine backed out of the house and hurried out into the yard. Andrew followed after her,
''I'm sorry Andrew, but to be honest... something doesn't smell right in your house and I needed some fresh air.''
"oh, you noticed that... yeah, my pet rat went missing a couple weeks ago... not sure where he is, I hope it isn't him.'' Andrew did look sad as he
gave the possible explanation.
"I'm so sorry about that, but let me know when he turns up.'' Catherine did not feel like ever entering that home again, but she would... She didn't
