A black cat limped to a sidewalk. It was cold, snow drifted softly to the ground. The cat had wondered if he would ever see winter again a long time ago, but now he couldn't even remember what winter was and it was only lowering his chance of survival. His skin hugged his shaking bones, ice clung to his fur, his tail drooped and dragged along. Finally, upon reaching said sidewalk, the cat collapsed from starvation and exertion. At least he wouldn't die in that horrible place. At least he would die free.
