One day when Fairminded Fran was walking behind her school, she saw three, small black cats crawling around a dumpster. She went to get a closer look, but they just ran off. The next day she asked her classmates if they knew about the cats, but no one did. Some students didn’t even care. Fairminded Fran then went to ask her teacher and told him that she wanted to leave out food for the cats and try to help them. He agreed and would go and leave food out for them with her. Fairminded Fran soon begins to make a big difference for the cats and soon finds their Mom!
