Good morning, my dear, sweet readers. Thank you for tuning in. I’m watching Shane chase and capture his tailless toy mouse. They chew the tails off all of their toys. I think it’s so cute when he walks around with toys in his mouth. He will often try to start a conversation about his toy with loud meows, sometimes in the upstairs hallway at night to no one.
Obviously, I love cats. I went through a period of a year or two where I found cats annoying, when Aislyn was a newborn/ infant and Desmond was 4. I think I was overwhelmed and unable to give the cats the attention they deserved, and I still feel really bad about it.
But they didn’t die lonely. Derek was very good to both of them even when I was more dismissive.
It just breaks my heart to think about. I can’t think about it anymore.
I’d love a dog, but we already have two kids and two cats. That’s probably enough. And, pointed out my therapist, a dog is much higher maintenance than a cat. She has a dog, Carlos, who often makes cameos in our teletherapy appointments. She thinks he likes the sound of my voice. I dunno why my voice. I’ve never cared for it, but it’s nice to know animals do.
