One of the reasons I put off getting a cat is that I couldn’t bear the pain of the loss. I went through all that years ago with my childhood cat and never wanted to go through it again. But you can’t go through life avoiding pain. You miss out on so much joy. And as you get older you realise life gets shorter. You have to enjoy these things while you can. As there might not be a next year or year after. So it’s time to grow up, be brave and have some responsibilities. To look after something other than myself. I’ve been drawing and designing cats. Now it’s time to have a real one! I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. Waiting for the right moment. There will never be a right moment though. But now is as good a time as any. How many more cliches can I fit in to one post! The time is now! Coming to get you Pebbles!
