Do you have any pets?
Charlotte: Yes. I have a cat and a guinea pig. And a goldfish. The cat is called Zephyr and the guinea pig is called Gip.
Do you like them?
Charlotte: Of course. Everyone likes their pets.
How would you feel if something awful happened to one of your pets?
Charlotte: Really sad. I had a rabbit once, but a dog got in and ate it. I cried.
Have you heard of Africa?
Charlotte: It's a long way away. They have jungles there, and wild animals.
There are people there as well. Millions of them.
Charlotte: I know.
Would you care if someone in Africa was hit by a bus?
Charlotte: Not much. It probably happens all the time.
Would you rather someone you didn't know in Africa was hit by a bus, or your goldfish died?
Charlotte: I'd rather someone was hit by a bus.
How about 10 people killed in a bus crash?
Charlotte: I still don't want my fish to die.
What if the choice is between your goldfish and a thousand people killed in an earthquake? What if you were magic, and you had to choose?
Charlotte: Maybe the people are more important.
What if it's between the people and Zephyr?
Charlotte: No way! I love Zephyr.
What if it's either ten people in Australia killed in a bushfire, or Zephyr hit by a car?
Charlotte: People I don't know?
Yes. You don't know any of them.
Charlotte: Then I'd pick Zephyr not to be hit by the car.
What if it's between Zephyr and grandma?
Charlotte: Um. Grandma's very old. She might die anyway.
What if it's either grandma dies 6 months before she would have, or Zephyr is hit by a car?
Charlotte: Are you going to tell grandma what I said?
I don't know. Probably not.
Charlotte: I think grandma is more important.
