We went to the vet today. I'm sure it's nothing, but of course I'm a little worried just the same. It's not the same when they're old, you know?
So I'm going to use a little reverse psychology here: Share it with everyone, and that'll increase the chance that it'll be no big deal! Right? Right.
Sometimes you get so busy in the day-to-day, you lose track of the magnitude of how much someone means to you. But when you get a scare, all those moments, days, months, maybe even years come roaring into view. Does this ever make me stop and think: 14 1/2 years of constant companionship. No one else has been with me through almost every single day of that time. If that doesn't make me sit quietly for a minute, I don't know what will.
I don't think you have to be a cat person to understand. A heart is a heart is a heart.
