sold the house last week. now live in an apartment, waiting for the perfect house bargain to come along. . .
anyway, the stupid cats are at it again. think they're queens of all they survey. what do they do? they leave!
my 14-year-old's cats vanished again today. into thin air. my daughter is maudlin (again), and my wife is in tears (again). and i have this sort of emotional detachment that's kind of creepy (again).
don't get me wrong, i love my cats. i hope they come back. for my daughter's sake, for my wife's sake. i do miss the creatures. i miss the way they crawl on top of my chest and head-butt my chin to tell me they want food.
