Day 13: Bye Bye Kitty
i feel sad.
i just buried XiaoJiao. She died this afternoon, despite all our hot water bottles, flea-picking and force feeding.
i was making plans for our future as buds and roomies. i was planning a kitty door to let her outside in summer. i was cursing how she was taking away my wkend freedoms. i uncomplainingly wiped her diarrhea off of my lap. i'd already arranged a full to the brim litter box.i searched for fleas and wiped her bum at 1 am.
i was all excited to see her come back to life, but she never did.
And it's extra sad 'cause she seemed more lively when we first picked her up, as shown.
And everybody coo'ed and oo'ed whenever she made her strange little dinosaur squawks. (her name alludes to them).
Anyhow, i'm not sure if i'm surprised at how quickly i got attached to the poor little bugger. i feel bad that she was dying from cold, and now she's underground with no heater, no hot water bottle, and no possibility of ever again climbing into my friend J's cleavage.
