Money

Tells how she acquired a pet cat, which was her main expense after board.

"My father took one look and said "We're not having a cat, you get rid of that"

and the cat jumped out and ran behind the woodpile and didn't come out for about a

fortnight and I used to sneak down at night and give her food"

Says having money and freedom was good.
