tearful symmetry

Years back, I'd been visiting the Pets in Need shelter in Redwood City off and on for a while; when I was ready to get another cat, I went into the rooms and sat down on the floor with the cats, watching them interact and play. One rather large, rather wobbly cat walked over and just plopped herself into my lap.

Decision made.

The day we went to the vet's office for the last time, I was sitting on the floor with her as she wobbled around the room, sniffing at things, checking out the toys, watching the cat-friendly video they were playing [she was fascinated by it]. And five or ten minutes before the vet tech came in to insert her IV...

...she crawled into my lap.
