About the comment that Tad was "sensitive" at his age, wouldn't necessarily mean he was in tune with others, it might have meant he was sensitive to criticism. At least that was the case for me. My parents always said I was too sensitive, that's what they meant. (It could also mean a child who is weak or nervous or had many medical issues.)

But it sounds at least that Tad had learning disabilities and ADD. SOTOs sound possible.

Yes---you are right---I ran an edit on the post. Thank you for correcting me on this. It was Eddie that had the kitten. I didn't read where he won---did he get to keep the kitten? I hope he did.

I was going by this paragraph:

One day, during the stay in Lexington, young Robert brought home a kitten. When Eddie saw the kitten, he immediately fed and nursed the helpless animal over the protests of Mary’s stepmother, who disliked cats.

It kind of indicated to me that he at least got to take care of it for a while, regardless of his step-grandmother's complaints.
