Her best friend, Sophie. Sophie had four kittens and her mum said that they couldn't keep four kittens so she offered one to Verity.

She made her into a cat mummy. She was so choked up she could barely make a sound so she couldn't have told her grandmother. She didn't want Mabel to be buried and she couldn't leave it as it would smell so she made her into a cat mummy. She knew how to as she was learning about the ancient Egyptians. She also didn't tell anybody about it.
In her wardrobe. The day before when Verity shouted at Mabel, she disappeared and Verity couldn't find her. Verity was going to take a nap when she came home from school. Even though it was a hot day, she felt cold and shivery. She went to get her winter dressing gown from her wardrobe and that is where she found Mabel, dead.
Because Mabel got sick and Verity stepped in the cat's sick. Verity was wearing open-toed sandals which made it a lot worse and that is why she shouted at Mabel.
