We’re giving our cats up. They are too much work. One poops on the ground no matter what we do. With the baby and all, it’s time.
We got the cats almost as soon as we got married so, even though they are overall a hassle, there is some emotional lineage tied to them. They represent our first year of marriage especially when we raised them as kittens.
There’s an orange cat named Eugene and a black cat named Malcolm.
I will think about where they go, hoping in fleeting moments that they’re doing well, wherever they are.
