Dinner guest loved cats. I remember him saying, "Belle needs a cat" during one of many nights when we couldn't get Belle to sleep or distract her long enough to be alone. Now Belle has a cat and I no longer have a dinner guest.
I didn't take the cat in because of the former dinner guest. I took the cat because he was healthy and I didn't need to jump through hoops to adopt him. Maybe dinner guest and I would be bonding over cats now had I not presented myself as dessert.
My decision to bond intimately with dinner guest wasn't a decision I took lightly. I knew he was a "special occasion, non-returnable item." I made an investment and lost. My heart hurts because it ended suddenly and with false rumors I can't clear up at this time.
I wish dinner guest could meet Krishna. My friend Justine met Krishna his second night here. We had fun that night. The mood in the house has brightened. Suddenly I am a cat person who likes lilies (Dinner guest gave me a bouquet with lilies for Valentine's Day, the last night we met.).
