The cat looked at Little Sally.

The cat didn’t particularly care for little girls; she didn’t think they were trustworthy.

Little Sally thought she looked unhappy by the door. She thought of all cats as girls, all dogs, boys.
She opened the front door wide and Rainbow dashed out, ‘Good riddance, no sneaky library cats while I’m reading.’
