“Human beings are the only animals that stutter,” she said.
A little girl raised her hand.
“I had a kitty-cat who stuttered.”
The teacher, knowing how precious some children’s stories could become, asked the little girl to describe the incident.
“Well,” she began, “I was in the back yard with my kitty and the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start, and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!”
“That must have been scary,” said the teacher.
“It sure was,” said the little girl.
“My kitty raised her back and went ‘Ffffff!, Ffffff!, Fffffff!’.”
