Stories with this maturity level will not, by design, have any potentially objectionable content. An example of a type story with this rating would be a quiz on mathematics.

All you've ever wanted was a nice fire to nap in front of, three square meals a day, and someone to love. For five months straight all three of your wishes remain fulfilled, but today feels... different.

This is nice little story. I appreciate the options with different paths for the story, even if they did loop around. The story could have had a little more description: for example, on the first page instead of putting an info dump there, perhaps it could have been more of an exploration that would reveal all those details without simply saying them. That would make the story much more interesting and would add a good bit of length to the story as well.

There were good options that led to different story experiences which is really good, especially in a story of this length. But again, in each case I think there could have been a little more detail in nearly every page to help describe and advance the story to make it even more interesting. The “dad” and “mom” terms were a little confusing, even if I was supposed to be a cat, though. Nicely done, this is a neat story.

Okay, this was cute.

Somehow I failed to see the tags and so it took me a little while to click to what the protagonist was. I was like damn, this girl is /lazy/.

At only a 2/8 in length this definitely could've been padded out a little more. More choices, some kind of conflict, maybe involving the aunt since she was specifically mentioned?

For a story on a site with the name "chooseyourstory.com" it's not exactly a story with a lot of choices. Nothing you do affects the ending, and it's not terribly exciting. But it was a cute little read-through with a nice twist. I enjoyed my time in it, but wouldn't choose to play again. It honestly wasn't a choose your own adventure at all.

contains spoilers!

This was kind of interesting but very short and had little in the way of a hook or description (right at the start I assumed you were a cat but this might have been intended as a twist for the end?)

I couldn't find any grammar mistakes, which is good. It was slightly boring. But keep up the good work!

Well that was cute. I liked the twist. But it definitely could have been longer and more variety of choices. I didn't notice any spelling or grammar mistakes. Not bad for a first time. Keep at it and next time try and add more options to expand on your story.

Not bad, but a little bit too short, and not so much to choose from.
Anyway, for the first time, it`s quite good.

The decisions lacked actual importance, there was only one ending, but I feel like you could expand upon the initial concept (like something of surviving you horrible aunt's visit).
