So, he was ready to go wherever his legs go. He returned to his room only whenever he felt the tiredness. He shared all his feelings and emotions with his pillows, imagining them as a person.

Next day, he continued the same. This routine made him very boring. He felt very dry to be alone. As he was a great lover of family life, his lonely feelings started to kill him day by day. At this old age only, he realized the need of a good companion to share everything.

Finally he came to a decision. He went to a pet shop and selected a nice pet called Jimmy.
