  • Cut by a cat.
    My cat.
    The cat I gave a home to.
    The cat I've loved unconditionally for 4 years.
    The cat I've protected from other cats and daughters.
    The cat who I feed, stroke, mentor.
    The cat I took to the vet to ensure her ongoing life.
    Scratched. Cut. Bled.
    Once, twice, thrice.
    Love hurts.
