Without moving a millimeter, Jamie opened her mouth wide and let out a piercing scream. The sudden noise in the quiet house startled even Jamie, but Mittens lost little time before pouncing. Grabbing Jamie firmly in her mouth, she headed straight for the cat door in the kitchen.
Now the bathroom has two doors, one leading to Lucy's room and one to her parents' room.
