Cause and Effect When Frederica and her brother Jim took their dog Lucky to obedience school, Frederica brought her cat Sniffles along, Jim told her he didn’t think it was a good idea to bring a cat to a school full of dogs, but Frederica said she would keep Sniffles in his box and everything would be all right. She didn’t want Sniffles to be lonely while they were at the class, which was held in the high school gymnasium.
Everything went fine at class for half an hour. Lucky learned how to play dead along with the other dogs. Sniffles sat quietly in his box. Frederica got tired of sitting still with Sniffles’ box in her lap, however. She stood up to stretch out her legs and dropped the box on the floor. The box’s door opened and Sniffles ran out excitedly into the center of the gym. Fifteen dogs who were playing dead in a circle suddenly saw a cat in their midst. “Uh, oh,” Frederica said. Twenty minutes later two firemen with a tall ladder were rescuing Sniffles from the beams at the top of the gymnasium. The dogs had chased Sniffles around the gym until he climbed a rope to the ceiling. IN all the excitement Lucky had forgotten how to play dead, how to heel, how to sit, how to speak, and how to fetch. Lucky and all of his classmates had to start school all over again. “I told you it wasn’t a good idea,” Jim said. What is the Cause and Effect connection in this passage?
