The Man was very sad. He knew that the Cat’s days were numbered. The doctor had said there wasn’t anything more that could be done, that he should take the Cat home and make him as comfortable as possible.
The man stroked the Cat on his lap and sighed. The Cat opened his eyes, 2)purred and looked up at the Man. A tear rolled down the Man’s cheek and landed on the Cat’s forehead. The Cat gave him a slightly annoyed look.
“Why do you cry, Man?” the Cat asked. “Because you can’t bear the thought of losing me? Because you think you can never replace me?”
The Man nodded “yes.”
“And where do you think I’ll be when I leave you?” the Cat asked.
The Man shrugged helplessly.
“Close your eyes, Man,” the Cat said. The Man gave him a questioning look, but did as he was told.
“What color are my eyes and fur?” the Cat asked.
“Your eyes are gold and your fur is a rich, warm brown,” the Man replied.
“And where is it that you most often see me?” asked the Cat.
“I see you ... on the kitchen windowsill watching the birds ... on my favorite chair ... on my desk lying on the papers I need ... on the pillow next to my head at night.”
