I called my roommate Henry the other day to wish him a happy birthday. It was Henry’s 21st birthday so I thought it would be funny to call him at 7:00 am. When I called him and he answered right away, I knew something was wrong. I asked him why he was up so early? He responded with, “well I’m trying to look for that damn cat.” When I left Carbondale the only cats we had were the dozen strays that lived in the alley. I knew Henry was lonely but I didn’t know he was so lonely that he would adopt a stray cat…but it would not surprise me. In the end I was glad to find out that he was only watching his friends cat for the week. Now that I think about it I never asked if he found the cat…
